From the moment Kara told me she was expecting wee babe #2 over Starbucks one day last fall I was sure she was going to have a boy….well, Ellen sure proved me wrong this May! Kara and Dwayne are now the lucky parents to two sweet and adorable little girls!
I really love the “downtime” during newborn sessions…the moments mom takes to feed or snuggle babe and this session was no different except I enjoyed the downtime even more because it was spent watching my amazing friend and business partner in her role as mother. Sarah and Dwayne were outside having a swing leaving Kara and I to chat as Kara fed Ellen. I asked Kara questions about the birth and she played with Ellen’s tiny fingers and stared at her as she told me what her first ten days as mom of two were like. It’s no secret I admire Kara’s work as a photographer….I tend to gush about how lucky I am to work with her quite a bit, but I also admire her as a mother – she is so full of love for her family, so positive and so caring…..qualities that I see she has totally passed on to her daughter Sarah who was FULL of hugs when I was over 🙂
Kara and Dwayne….it was such a pleasure to spend this time with you again for baby #2! I can’t wait to watch Ellen grow and watch Sarah grow into her role as big sister! Thank-you so much for allowing me to capture these memories for you!
