"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.
"When you welcome in another child, the heart does not need to make more room; it simply grows."
I love maternity sessions. Even more so when there are children involved and you know that in a matter of weeks you will be watching that child become an older brother or sister. It's something really, really special to see and then capture for the family. More love than ever before. That was exactly the case with this beautiful family. Such a pleasure to photograph the three of them, and then again when sweet Asher joined us last month.
