In my daughter’s eyes,
I can see the future,
A reflection of who I am and what will be,
And though she’ll grow and someday leave,
Maybe raise a family,
When I’m gone I hope you’ll see,
How happy she made me,
For I’ll be there,
In my daughter’s eyes

“In My Daughter’s Eyes” Martina McBride

I caught major baby fever with this shoot. Ashley and Brian are amazing humans who made one of the cutest little baby humans in the entire world. Ashley and I have been friends since 2008, after we realized our affinity for Harry Potter, viral youtube videos, and theological discussions (sometimes in the same conversation). Brian is perfect for Ashley in every way, and the way that they play off each other had me crying from laughter. Sadie Kate is turning 6 months old this month, and Ashley told me that she wanted to commemorate her half birthday with a shoot.

Sadie was such a great sport, despite being woken up from her nap, and placed in a bucket without her consent. She kept us all laughing with her facial expressions and her love for smiling only when the camera was off. I love this family and hope that their images did justice to how much love they have for one another.
