Vancouver Washington Family Summer Portraits at the Puget Sound
What an incredible gift it was to capture summer portraits for one of my most favorite families ever at the Puget Sound. I sincerely love these children as if they were my own. It is no surprise that they are amazing little people, because their parents are fabulous (as are their grandparents as well!). The mother of these gorgeous children is my dear, dear friend whom I absolutely adore… and knew before any of our babies were born. I owe a large part of the joy I take in motherhood to her. We became first time mothers within two weeks of each other, and the example, support, and encouragement that she offered me so lovingly then (and everyday since then) has been priceless!
Too much time goes by in between visits since we now live on opposite coasts, and my breath catches painfully to realize how quickly all of our babies are growing up. But I know that these precious children are truly cherished and enjoyed each day.
“You will never have this day again with your children, tomorrow they will be a little bit older than they are today. Today is a gift, breathe and notice, smell and hold them, study their faces and pay attention, and enjoy today, it will be over before you know it. Relish the charms of the present.” –Jen Hofmaker
