Good evening, and Happy Thanksgiving week friends! I so enjoy this week, mostly because my kids are home, and my husband takes off of work, and we watch lots of movies and eat lots of delicious treats. This year we are baking up some cookies and tasty breakfast treats. I get so excited about the yummy food. I love seeing my family more, and my friends too. Wishing you all a happy week.
I’m sharing this evening a glorious family session from the sleepy little town of Crosswicks, New Jersey. Talk about charming. This whole town is like something out of a 1950’s movie. I kept waiting to see Don and Betty Draper with Sally and Bobby in tow. Not kidding. It’s just gorgeous. Speaking of gorgeous, that sums up the Hutchinson family. This is my second year photographing them, and they are just lovely people. I so enjoyed spending the morning with them late October. Kat, Todd, Elinor, thank you for this lovely time spent.
In writing this post today, I had to look back at my last post prior to this one. It was a very long time ago. Like way back in August. I’ve done what feels like a lifetime worth of things since my last post. I’ve photographed lots of beautiful things, and my heart feels so very full. As Thanksgiving approaches, I feel truly, deep in my heart, gratitude. My favorite part of what I do, is the people that I meet. I’m thankful for all the children who make me smile. I’m thankful to meet brand new parents, and snuggle with their new babies. I love to meet families that laugh out loud, and enjoy every part of their time spent together. As the year winds down, I begin to reflect. And it’s oh so good. Many thanks. Sono Grata.
I’ve known Kim and her girls for a few years now. Phoenix and Kim’s daughter Lily have been friends since they had kindergarten with the same teacher. Kim has been wanting to get some updated pictures of all three girls for a while now, but came to me a few weeks back asking to do it as soon as we could. We chatted about how time just flies by, and especially with kids! They grow just too fast! We met on a morning when the girls were off of school, and we had a relaxed morning at the park. These four lovely ladies are truly awesome. They’ve been holding each other up and together during some tough times this year. They are all so strong and courageous. Their beautiful spirit was felt in every picture. There was lots of laughter and fun. I had a great time, and I think they all did too.
Thank you Kim, Sarah, Grace, and Lily. xo
