I have been so excited to get to this post! Ami contacted me about doing pictures of her beautiful family. We had been emailing back and forth and what immediately struck me about our conversations was that Ami and Neil wanted to capture their family just as it was.. at this moment. They were awaiting the arrival of their new little one to make them a family of four! And they wanted to remember life just like it is now with their adorable little daughter Mira, her sweet grandparents, and their little soon-to-be bundle! ::sigh:: That's EXACTLY what I want to do. That's why I love this. Because life changes so fast (for the better of course!) but it's so important to take a step back and enjoy the little things. The smiles between family, little giggles, subtle "I love you" glances. Thats why I do this.
I can't even describe how amazingly welcoming and sweet Neil, Ami and her parents were to me. I mean, I always am so appreciative of how welcoming people are to me when I'm showing up at their door (sometimes meeting for the first time!) But I have never felt more welcome than I did this day! I kinda just wanted to hang out and play with Mira in her little princess room for the rest of the day! I drove away with a smile, knowing that I was able to accomplish what I had set out to do. To capture their life as they know and love it.
Mira and Neil have recently welcomed their little baby girl! Congratulations! I couldn't be happier for you all! Mira will be an amazing big sister!
So much love!
BY FAR my favorite kind of family picture!
