5 Lessons I Learned From Having My Own Family Photographed

But in the meantime, I was so thrilled we could get together to photograph this magical time in Lyndsie and her family's life, full of anticipation, excitement and love.

Nothing has been more meaningful to me as a photographer than walking alongside my clients as they travel through life, inviting me to document the happiest of moments with them. I met Lindsay and Jordan two years ago when I took their engagement photos, and they were married in one of my favorite celebrations to date. Now, they have new names: mom and dad. Little Evelyn is the snuggliest, happiest little girl in the world, and a joy to her new parents and everyone who knows her. What a little blessing you have created, Lindsay & Jordan! Here's a peek into their happy, exhausting, and blissful new life:
