I suppose I should preface this post with the fact that although Knox is 15 months old, we do not have one single family photo. Not a single one.
This fact made me sad. Photos capture a moment in time that you will be able to keep with you forever. And I want to capture our family as we are right now. I love my little family more than words can ever express and being able to have a glimpse into this phase of our lives is going to be so great to look back on when Seth and I are old, grey and rocking on our front porch together.
But having the right photographer is so important because, although anyone can take a picture, there are not many that can capture all the perfect details of a special moment – especially one that is candid and not posed.
When I first spotted Susie Leblondes work I knew that I just had to contact her to do our photos for us. And let me tell you, she exceeded every bit of expectation that I had. Her love for photography is clear and you can see the love made visible, not only during the shoot but also when we collected our gorgeous photo’s just a couple of days later.
I was nervous about how the pictures were going to turn out. Let’s just say that Riya is sick of being a model and hardly wanted to be present in any of the pictures. But, like I said – the right photographer makes all the difference!
It’s been really hard to choose my favourites, so be prepared for A LOT of photo’s.
(Also, I have finally updated the About Our Family page at the top – nothing completes a lot of random words like a gorgeous photo, or two… OK, four!)
