Jacob and his soon-to-be little sister

I don’t even know where to begin with this session, which has turned out to be probably one of the best sessions I have ever done.  First of all, the light… well, it was perfect. “High silk” is what photographers call it.  It was cloudy but not too much, so it wasn’t gloomy at all.  Just a perfect diffuser for the morning sun.  Then there was 2-years-young Jacob, who has to be one of the most exuberant little fellows I have ever met. He just never stopped smiling the whole time.  And these weren’t just little smiles either. I pretty much have an entire session full of huge all-out smiles. I asked his mom if he was always like that, and she said he was. Except when he is upset.  And then he swings totally in the opposite direction… I pity his mom when he’s in the opposite mood, because that must be really something to see. 

Then there is Jacob’s mom, who is SO beautiful in her last month of pregnancy, carrying Jacob’s little sister.  She was exuberant too, in her love for her little boy.  I remember so clearly when I was pregnant with my little girl, and those last few months of being with my son before my daughter was born. I knew our lives were about to change, that he would no longer be an only child.  I felt almost guilty because I knew those precious times when it was just the two of us were about to be gone forever.  But of course I also knew that he would have a little sister to love who would love him back, so my small guilt was assuaged.  Love is such a funny thing.  There is always enough of it to go around. 

The reason I love what I do is because I get to watch people who are totally in love with each other.  Parents and kids, husbands and wives… and babies to be.  This was just one of the sweetest sessions I’ve ever done, and all because Nicole and Jacob inhabit their own world of love. 

We did this session at First Pres, and then moved to the Train Depot for a few shots.  And when Nicole brought out the rainboots I knew I had died and gone to photographer heaven.  Anyone who knows me at all knows my obsession with kids and rainboots.

So enjoy these sweet sweet pictures.  My dilemma now is how I’m supposed to cull this session down to 35 or so pictures when over 150 pictures ended up in my “keep” pile.  I guess it’s a good problem to have.

Jacob was even happy changing clothes in the van…
