I loved when Heather asked me to photograph her son's one year photos. Even though I've only known her for a few months, we seemed to make an instant connection because of our love for Brazil. We actually both lived there (at different times, in different cities) for some time after we graduated as we worked with college students. We've traded stories over our experiences and I feel grateful for a new friend who doesn't tire of my constant references to life in Brazil.
This mom has such a quiet and gentle spirit. She is so easy going and I love how carefree she is with her son, Jack. Not only did he just turn one, but in a few weeks, he's going to be a big brother! It only made sense to capture a few maternity shots as well. Heather, you are just gorgeous.
Her family was the sweetest and I loved witnessing their interaction. Happy Birthday, Jack! Your joy is infectious.
