You can’t over emphasize the importance of family, this is why I have dedicated my life to telling their stories. As I watch my own parents age, I find excuses and ways to be with them. I know I won’t have them forever, and I struggle to find the balance between living a truly fulfilling life and operating a profitable business that allows me the time to enjoy them. I feel so lucky to live in this beautiful town with my two sisters less than five minutes from me. I feel so fortunate that my parents can drive to Mystic and choose between three houses to stay at, any day of the week. In a perfect world, none of us would work, we’d travel and explore this beautiful life together. I am so fortunate to have found a job that I love, that gives me purpose. Everything that I find myself doing now is to fulfill something I know I can’t get back in the future. I am just so grateful for finding this path so early.
I met this sweet family of four on a beautiful summer morning in Stonington, Connecticut. Their two gorgeous blonde haired girls are the center of their world and they had me smiling from the minute I met them. It reminded me of my own family, and capturing what is perfect for them made everything in my day worth it. Here are some of my favorites from their session.
