My lovely friend Candice recently welcomed her first daughter ... making her sweet little family now a beautiful FIVE. I photographed her family just five short days after Madison was born, which was perfect because all she was interested in was eating and sleeping and was phased when her adoring big brothers fussed over her.
Candice is a warm, easy going and light hearted mama to her beautiful babies. If she felt flustered during my visit, I couldn't tell. She easily comforted one child while tending to the needs of another all while cradling her sweet girl in her arms. Candice told me how Madison immediately fell into place within their family, how even after only five short days that they couldn't imagine life without her in it. Just as it should be.
Babies are always, always a blessing, and I think should be welcomed into a family just the way beautiful Madison has been - with open arms, hearts full of adoration and celebration at her arrival. These four are certainly smitten with their new family member, she will never be short of a cuddle, a soothing voice or barrels of fun when she's old enough to run around with her brothers. What a lucky little lady indeed!
When I asked Candice if I could share a few photographs from their session on my website and blog, she hesitated a moment, which sometimes happens and is always respected. Sharing my work online is important to keep my business going, to show my work as it evolves and grows, to show off the beautiful people I am invited to photograph - and I am always grateful when clients allow me to share their memories. But they're just that, these photographs belong to my clients more than they do me, so if a client feels strongly about keep their photographs offline, I'm happy to oblige.
Candice did agree to allow me to share her photographs, but with the caveat that I only share a handful. This beautiful mama bird wants to share only a glimpse at her session - and her brand new party of five - with the world, she wants to keep the rest of them to herself. Which is absolutely perfect. I'm grateful to have been invited into their home to document this precious season in their life. Welcome Madixx
