Photographing the Barlage family is always such a treat for me. Jess and I were good friends in high school and played volleyball and softball together. After graduating and attending different colleges we didn’t see each other much, so it has been so wonderful seeing her and her family regularly to capture this season of life with them.
Their newest addition, Shea, totally rocked her newborn session. And by rocked her newborn session I mean she slept the whole time and let her older brother crawl all over her. What a champ! Her big brother was so excited to introduce me to Shea and he wanted to be near her at all times. Too sweet!
Being a part of these special moments with families is something I will never take for granted. It is so encouraging for me to see the way these families adjust and welcome their newest additions with such selflessness and love. How did I get so lucky? I will always feel so thankful to be capturing these irreplaceable memories with families.
