Patrick and I love getting to photograph families with littles, because 1) we get to pause and highlight the ever-changing growth in a baby’s life and 2) we cure our baby fever and love acting like fools to get these cuties to smile. Stephanie and I met at work, and when she asked about me photographing Asher’s 6 month of life, I was beyond thrilled! Adam and Stephanie are the sweetest couple, and their story is simply incredible. From spending years in Hawaii to making their way to the east coast for work, these two have experienced so much life, sharing their sense of adventure and love of life with their adorable son. From the moment we met Asher, Patrick and I could not get over how chill he was the entire time. Asher was so observant, taking in the sight of the strange lady with a camera while Patrick, Stephanie, and Adam did their best renditions of peek-a-boo and the alphabet song. My favorite moments from the day were definitely seeing Asher’s personality come through in the images as well as catching up with Stephanie and meeting Adam for the first time.

The love that Stephanie and Adam have for Asher is so amazing and I was definitely getting a little misty while editing their images. In-between the happy tears, there were definitely smiles. I mean, how could you not when looking at Asher’s sweet face!

Stephanie, and Adam: Thank you for giving me the honor of documenting Asher’s 6th month of life here in this amazing world. You two are incredible parents and I know your adorable son recognizes just how lucky he is to have such amazing guides and role-models. Asher: thank you for being a trooper despite teething, and a change in your routine. Spitting up and hearing your name over and over did not ruin your day and I’m so glad that I was able to commemorate your 6th month of life. You are going to do amazing things.
