One of the greatest joys of this little career path I stumbled into has been sessions like this. I realize that on the outside it appears that I bring my camera, snap the shutter, edit some photos, and everyone moves on with their lives. And maybe, in part, that’s true. But really, it is so much more.
Chad and I met Skye and Wade at a wedding we shot years ago. At the time they were dating–or were they engaged? (I can’t remember?) Either way, we were so happy when they invited us to capture their wedding day. And then I met up with them again when they were expecting their sweet first baby and again shortly after baby Coleson was born. And here we are again, a family growing, a new baby soon to arrive. I find such joy standing on the outside of these growing families. Watching as two become three and four and beyond. I find such pleasure in watching how partners in love turn into partners in love and parenting.
Chad and I love these two. We love their hearts and their humor. We love their commitment to family and each other. They make us laugh and they are, simply put, good, solid people. Skye and Wade, your kids are blessed to call you Mom and Dad and I am thankful for the tiny glimpse into your beautiful family.
