"I'm not sure how but as the time passes my heart simply seems to grow. More room is created every day for all the things I love about you."
This family has a very special place in my heart. Three years ago to the night these photographs were taken, I photographed Ellie & Stephen's wedding. Last year I met Teddy, their baby boy born in March. Then, early April of this year, on the night of their third wedding anniversary, we met again in Hahndorf to photograph these. When I drove home from the hills after this, I truly, honestly had the biggest feelings of gratitude and contentment. I felt, and still feel, so privileged to grow with families like this, to share in their joy. It's so special.
"What I cannot adequately express in words, I will show you."
Caitlin and Billie and half an hour on a lovely overcast day. Because I care so deeply about capturing emotion, I often don't worry too much about where I am shooting. Some people think that's crazy. To me, give me good light and some greenery and love. After all, I don't need fancy if I have pure, jumping-out-at-me-love, to photograph.
