Brittany texted me after this shoot and said “Lincoln keeps talking about his new friend Anna” and I was like YESSS. Score. I love hanging out with kids. I feel like they usually have the right idea, about life. It’s so much fun to make the space during shoots and just let them be, to follow their lead. It just takes a little patience and a release of expectations. It was so cool to see his sweet personality emerge. Super sweet and gentle and wanting to follow the bunnies + a healthy dose of fart jokes. Amazing! If only we could all be so authentic in our own skin.
Brittany and Joe are the two ridiculously talented photographers behind Blue Rose Photography, so when Brittany reached out about doing a session for them, I was extra honored, and a little intimidated. But this Whidbey Island family session at Ebey’s Landing was so beautiful in so many ways! I collaborated with Brittany on some Pinterest inspiration for their outfits, and on choosing an inspiring location. They decided to make a fun camping weekend out of the shoot, and had been relaxing nearby at their campsite before we started shooting! This evening was extra special because this was the day that Brittany announced she is pregnant with their second little one! Lincoln is the sweetest and will be such an amazing big brother to his little SISTER! I was so incredibly honored and excited to shoot this session and am so happy to share it with you.
