When I think back to last year and of all the amazing shoots I’ve been so lucky to be a part of, this one with Patricia’s family really holds a special place in my heart. About 5 years ago is when I first met Patricia and Greg on their wedding day. I remember so clearly how Patricia was so welcoming and warm, she trusted me with so much even though I had just met her. And since then our lives have crossed randomly but meaningfully, one being our daughters being born months apart. There’s something about having kids around the same time that really bonds people together, especially when our girls are both so spirited! I’ve had so many people ask me “Aren’t girls suppose to be calm?” after meeting my daughter and what can I say, she just loves to be who she is (and I never want her to change that even when I’m pulling my hair out lol). And true to form, Patricia and Greg’s little girl was exactly as free spirited at our shoot as I hoped she would be. It was truly heartwarming to capture the love between the three of them before they welcomed one more sweet girl into their family. Read more about their story featured on the beautiful blog Belle Lumiere.
Patricia is such a natural beauty and so gorgeous pregnant! Fiona and Kyana gave her the special treatment enhancing her beauty with natural, glowy make-up and soft, wavy hair for the mama who rarely gets to wear her hair down. Erin styled the shoot perfectly, completing the natural look and palette with an armful of wildflowers and a delicate gold pendant by Iccha Jewelry.
Oh my gosh, this face and those curls, I can’t even handle it! <3
And I would just like to add that Greg is an awesome dad and husband, seriously this whole family had us all melting behind the scenes. It was a very simple morning but really left a huge impact on the whole team.
I overshared this session but I couldn’t help it, I almost blogged every photo because I had such a hard time narrowing them down. Hope you enjoyed this session as much as I did, and thank you Patricia for sharing a morning with your sweet sweet family.
