it's important work,
coming into a home and photographing the people who live there,
documenting them during a particular season of life.
most often, i don't know the ins and outs of the families i photograph,
just that they want pictures of their kids before they get too big.
but sometimes, i get the privilege to photograph
a family who've become my friends,
and the job is more of a celebration than anything else.
it's still work to an extent,
but it's also an honor to know parts of the family's story,
and to share in their joy of where they are.
such was the case a few weeks ago,
when i spent time with the welsh family.
here are a few faves from my time with their sweet kids...
