Ended the week feeling rejuvenated, inspired and ready! Starting this week feeling grateful, supported and in awe.
You see, there is so much magic, all around. Connections. Fleeting gestures. Synergistic moments. They’re what make life, special. Memorable. Monumental. Joyful.
This session right here, makes me feel all those things. I met the inspirational mama you witness here a few years ago through a mutual friend as we were both photographers!
We connected immediately. Both passionate. Both pregnant with our daughters. Both living lives of our dreams.
We stayed in touch. We shared the subtle and the sweet moments. We drank coffee and ate breakfast with our daughters, just weeks old.
Then, fast forwarded some time. We had started mentioning to our people that we were considering moving to the mountains. Connection. Oh, the power of connection gets me every time.
My husbands captain at the time said that his wife knew and worked with another photographer who had just moved up to the mountains. I was given a number and being consumed by life, just kept it in my messages. Months went by and still, I did nothing with it.
Then, when we really started looking at houses with our realtor and I knew things were progressing with buying a home up here, I put the number in my phone. That number, immediately popped up.
Kristi. The same Kristi I had been introduced to years before. The same Kristi who was pregnant with her daughter at the same time and we shared joyful, intimate moments with. The same Kristi who I had been admiring her work.
Yes, connection my friend.
Connection is that beautiful. I called her literally freaking out (in a good way). She gave me all the details she knew about mountain life and more. We giggled. We connected. We honored where our lives were. It was so truly beautiful.
Since moving up to the mountains, this mama and her family have quite literally taken us under their wings. From learning our wear-about, to recommendations, to mamas, to happenings, to the best preschool and more. They have been our rock, our guidance, our community!
To document their growing family is an honor, privilege, immense joy.
