The first time I met D, he was 3, just about 5 years ago! He was my best little bud at his mom and dad's wedding, where I was their wedding photographer [under Fallon's Photography Studio - check out Janyl and the team at Fallon's for all of your wedding photography needs, they're awesome!]. Fast fast forward a year or so and the world gets a little smaller when his mom, Jess, and I become work neighbors in the Eastwood Mall.
I was so excited last year when I found out that same family would be getting plus one in Spring 2018. To kick off this year I did a model call for newborns, and tagged Jess knowing very well D would be a great model for his new little bro and a sibling session. She was more than happy to participate, but baby M was such a tease! He arrived early, at 35 weeks and got to hang out with some awesome NICU nurses for 4 weeks before finally coming to meet me.
D was even more helpful and willing to hang out with his brother and I than I could have ever hoped! He was my assistant during M's solo session and jumped right in when I was ready to photograph the two of them. He met all of my challenges, holding M and giving him all the brother love [that won't be so 'cool' in a few short years!]. It was such a privilege to capture yet another milestone for this beautiful family. Congratulations to The R Family, Party of 4!
