"At the age of 3, Lilly told her grandmother that her throat was closing up after eating at a Chinese restaurant. The epi pen was administered.“
"This was one of my favorite maternity sessions, simply because this Mama was so excited to capturing her pregnancy. Previous losses gave them gave them such gratitude for this growing baby in her belly and it showed in her eyes and in her smile."
"Creating sauce from fruit is so delicious and perfectly simple. It's the perfect way to welcome summer into our kitchens.
You can add it to ice cream, shortcake, pancakes, french toast, angel food cake, biscuits, oatmeal or just lick it directly off the spoon.
Field sessions in June and September are my favorite sessions in the world. And this family? One of my favorites. In a favorite field. In one of my favorite months. Since this session, they’ve welcomed a new member to their family! (I’ll be sharing her newborn session soon.)
We sat in the back of the cafe, in leather chairs that made us feel cozy yet very important. The lights were dim, the walls dark, the coffee…excellent.
