I took a trip down memory lane as I was prepping today’s salt river maternity session post. high school graduation portraits down by the salt river filled with high school journals + music, family portraits with her large happy family that always reminds me a smidge of my own with their happy, witty/sarcastic interactions, getting to see her confident and young and carefree as a college student posing throughout the city with her best girls, her wedding day – photographing her walk down the aisle just as the sun broke through the clouds and rainbow and seeing the first few moments of her joy at seeing jordan, and then this past weekend coming full circle back to the salt river – it was so fitting…her + jordan and her sweet son growing in her seriously cute belly… so yes, I’m feeling all sorts of nostalgic thinking about how God designs family outside of your blood family and how he uses seasons and stages of life to knit memories and hearts together.
I’m also feeling incredibly thankful. when God put a camera in my hand almost eleven years ago, I never, never anticipated the joy I would encounter at getting a front row seat to these beautiful life stories…and jordan + kaitlin’s story is just that – absolutely beautiful and real and something I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of photographing.
love you, kaite + jordan…I can not wait to meet and hug your boy! 🙂
