As she buried her face in her daddy’s shoulder, her dark curly hair fell out from behind her ear, covering her shy, sweet face. Eric brushed her hair out of her face and hooked his finger under her chin, trying his best to coax a smile. Despite his best efforts, Milah turned away, burying herself into his other shoulder.
New person, new place, new situation. I get it, I understand her feeling shy.
So we rolled with it. Without drawing much attention to her, and playing off of the crazy goofy energy of big sister Lennon and big brother Dryden, we moved through our session in ways that left Milah, for the most part, in the safety of daddy’s arms.
I loved hanging out with these three and their mama and daddy. I met Danielle and Eric when we were wayyy younger and wilder. During our session, we laughed about how different their lives are now than when we met, but Eric, being the totally cutie patootie dad he is, said, “Yeah, those were fun times, but I wouldn’t trade this for anything.”
Cue the heart eyes.
Eric, Danielle, Dryden, Lennon, and Milah – thank you so much for coming down to Annapolis to hang with me! You are one of the coolest, sweetest families I know, and I was so glad to finally get y’all in front of my camera! XOXO!
