I first connected with Kirsten & Tom a couple years ago when Kirsten reached out about an anniversary session! (Check out their fall anniversary session here!) It’s so special to me when couples reach back out, and I get to photograph them through all different chapters in their lives. 🙂 Kirsten and Tom had their sweet daughter Hailey just over a year ago, so this holiday was the perfect time to take photos and document this exciting season for them as a family! And it made it extra meaningful to photograph them in their home where they would be hosting their families for Christmas for the first time!
Seeing these two become parents and how much joy their daughter brings, just makes me so happy! The way they laugh and play together as a family is so sweet. I know that these times go by so quickly, so preserving the memories in photographs is so important!
One of their adorable pups, Maple joined in the photo shoot, too! If you know me, you know how much I love dogs. But when dogs AND babies are involved, I mean, it’s a whole new level of heart-melting obsession. Just watching the way that Hailey loves on Maple, hugging her, resting her head on her, and letting her lick cookie frosting off her hands, was priceless.
It was such an honor to capture all these special memories for such a sweet family, that I’m lucky to call clients & friends! Kirsten and Tom, thank you so much for having me capture another season of your lives, and trusting me with telling your beautiful story! I love you guys! I hope these are photos that you guys and Hailey will continue to look back on to keep reliving all the love and joy surrounding this amazing time of your lives! xoxo
