When I met Lauren at her lifestyle newborn session a few weeks ago, we INSTANTLY connected. That is one of my very favorite things about photographing families, is meeting moms who you just immediately develop a connection week. I don’t know that we stopped chatting the entire session, just sharing stories about motherhood – the joys, the struggles and all the REAL stuff that no one ever talks about. I loved meeting her precious daughters, especially their newest addition, Ilaria. Her room is full of so many sentimental treasures, and I loved hearing the rich history and purpose behind each piece in her room.
