It’s been almost a year since I saw these two little ladies and they have grown so much (funny how that happens)! We met up this time at the Public Library in Cambridge, which has a great playground and open green space – we also stopped for a bit along their regular walking-to-school-path – Bea and Ellie had a great time running through all the leaves that are falling, such a universal childhood game! Maybe my hair would stop turning gray if I ran through more leaves every year. : )
Alli and I met through an infant playgroup, back when the big topic was when the kids would start crawling – in Jonah’s case would he crawl, scoot, or just skip it and go straight to walking?! By now Jonah is not only walking but running, jumping, and otherwise being an inspiration for his baby brother Ethan. They were such fun to photograph together, and there was plenty of room to run at one of the family’s favorite park hangouts where we met for our session. Choosing a location that has some significance to your family is a great idea for creating photographs that feel more personal and can spark other memories you’ve shared there as a family!
I met up with Seb and his family again earlier this summer. He’s grown up so much since our last visit together!
It is one of the great joys and privileges of what I do that I get to keep in touch with families as they grow and change. As a parent, it really reminds me that the days may be long, but the years are indeed short!
