spring family session at home

Let’s be clear: I love a good spring family session at home, especially with a wee, adorable, feisty little lady like Esme! 

This little girl is so full of life in all the ways! She’s a sweet little whirlwind with a dash of celebrity spice. During our session, she busted out her epic dance moves to more than one Queen classic, worked a few different outfits, modeled her modern glam sunglasses moves in the mirror, and pretty much owned the room—EVERY room. 

Her parents, Belinda and Jeremy, are a laugh riot too, and I loved their house! Jeremy is an architect who designed their house with SO much space and natural light that I kind of wished I lived there with them! It was just so bright and inviting—a perfect place to just play and enjoy each other. 

As I always do with my families, I encouraged Belinda and Jeremy and Esme to just hang out, do what they do, and just be and I am so in love with their truth that shines through their images. We spent their entire spring family session rolling through the normal, everyday motions of life with a toddler—dance parties, snack time, outfit changes, playtime—complete with hugs, big belly laughs, a few scrunchy-face moments, and some big, bursting love.  

Confession: I shot this session last March, but even in looking back over these images a year later, I can still see that this was such a super special time for this family! I’m also really excited to be capturing them again in the early summer when their second kiddo arrives! I can’t wait to see how Esme has grown, and how their family dynamic has evolved with the addition of a new little one!
