Welcome Home, L | Pennsylvania
When I stepped inside Laura and Chris's home on the morning of April 20th, the first thing I did (as Laura approached me for a hug) was gasp at the light pouring through the windows. While Chris gave me a tour of their home, pride filled his eyes while listening to Laura softly speak to their baby as she fed him. Simultaneously I had a flashback of Laura and I attending Volleyball practice in High School. I quickly remembered the power this human had in making those around her laugh and feel relaxed in her presence. Some things never change.
Walking into a Client's home leaves me feeling calm and connected to their story. I am surrounded by their sacred space and it always brings chills to my arms. The juxtaposition of their Wedding photograph on their living room built in wall shelf, and the three of them laying on their couch in front of it, was enough to fill my eyes with appreciation and dare I say...that single tear that without fail makes it's way down my cheek during sessions.
Thank goodness I have a camera to block my eyes, huh?
Capturing this brand new family of three was joyful and surreal down to the drive home.
I passed farms to the left and right, rolled the windows down to breathe in the crisp Spring air mixed with freshly cut grass, and watched the sun peak in and out of pine trees. I even pulled over for some photographs...

This song allows you to connect with the photographs on a more visceral level.
