First there was Dana and Michel. Then came Emry and Olivier. And now, their newest puzzle piece, beautiful little Leona.
This session was about celebrating Leona and them as a family of five, in all its beauty and craziness. Around the house and in the freshly fallen Rochester snow we played.
One day, these three kids are going to go through a box of these photographs - laughing at their childhood smiles and at how young their parents looked "back then." They might not know our names as the photographers who took them, and that's ok with me. What matters is that they have them at all - because Dana and Michel continued to trust us to capture them.
All along the way, from wedding day to three kids later - we've been a part small but important part of their lives. It was seven years ago, that they trusted me enough to give me a start down this path. They were among the very first, and I'll forever be grateful to them for that.
As always, thank you, Dana and Michel for letting us play this role for you.
