C A M D E N | May 2016 Portraits

I was so thrilled when Rachel messaged me, asking if I would be able to do a portrait session with her son, Camden!  This sweet little guy’s uncle was actually in Jake and my wedding and the whole family means a lot to us, so it was special to me to be able to take photos of Camden!  When Rachel messaged me and said “Camden is growing so fast, and I have yet to get photos done of him!”, as simple as it was, it reminded me of why I love being a photographer.  Although we all know that time passes quickly, babies seem to remind us of that with how fast they grow and change.  It’s just a little harder to remember that time is moving by all of us at the same rate, even though we aren’t all still growing quite so quickly. 😉

Camden was born early and spent the first weeks of his life in the NICU.  As I’ve watched his family go through the journey that has been Camden’s life since he was born, I’m grateful to celebrate someone so small that has already had such an impact on the people around him.

As you probably know, I really enjoy being able to take photos that highlight the little things.  One reason why I enjoy doing newborn and baby photos every now and then is that I get to capture those details that seem to change so quickly so that they will last- even after those tiny fingers and toes aren’t so tiny anymore.  All of this to say, I’m glad I get to do what I do.  To capture moments, details, and the little things that won’t last forever is a privilege and an adventure that I’m glad to be a part of.

Here are my favorites from my session with Camden and some of his family.  Enjoy!
