Stewart Family (For the Love of Saturdays ~ Lifestyle Session)

I’m rolling out a new session offering. One that I’ve been dreaming about for quite some time now. In-home lifestyle sessions documenting the little things which end up being the big things. . . breakfast in Ninja Turtle big-boy-pants, feeding the dog from the counter, spontaneous hugs and snuggles, jumping on the bed, playing with a train during breakfast, daydreaming out the window, Dad playing “motorcycle” with his son on the edge of the couch, Mom tucked away for a quiet moment nursing her baby, big brother giving massive head-hugs to unsuspecting newborn baby, laughs and giggles all around . . .

It’s the little things, the everyday things that are the best memories of all. I literally have zero professional pictures of my kids when they were really little. Zero. And you know, I’ll be honest. It’s not the standard portraits with everybody looking at the camera and smiling that I most regret not having. It’s the image of my 2 year old son hanging on my leg while I wash dishes. It’s the photo of my kids dancing in their underwear to our silly family made-up song, “Dancin Dancin in my Unduh-pants!” It’s the photo of that split second where my crazy daughter who was always running around  from one activity to the next actually sat still long enough to rest her head on my shoulder and pat my belly as a little love-touch. (Not even pregnant, kids just like to pat bellies, you know?!) These are the images that I carry in my head that are most dear to me. I can never get them printed or share them visually with you. And while I do still enjoy them in my mind, I’d do anything to physically go through those photos in my hands.

More info to come soon on these shoots but tonight, I just want to share my first one . . . my first “For the Love of Saturdays” session . . . enjoy!!!!!
