Before having kids, I remember always being told, “You’ll understand when you have your own kids.” As much as you want to believe you aren’t that naive, there are certain aspects of it that is true. One being, how fast they will grow (and it doesn’t stop when they turn one!). The days truly do feel so long, but they grow and change SO fast that when you look back on it, you’ll ask yourself where the time went.
This beautiful Mama reached out to me to document their son, Cooper’s first birthday. It was the first time they had any portraits taken of him (other than Santa!) and knew they needed to document that season of life they were in.
Fast forward a little bit and they are preparing to welcome baby #2 and Mom, Cody, knew that she wanted to document every part of this baby’s first year, including a maternity session. This is a story that I hear often and parents sometimes even wrestle with guilt of doing more for one than they did for the other. But Mom and Dad, please know that it’s NEVER too late to start documenting your families memories.
To celebrate baby’s upcoming arrival and to document these final days as a family of three, Cody wanted a park and beach maternity session at Sherwood Island. I love this location in Westport because it truly does allow us the perfect mix of those greens you get in the field and beach. Cooper loved playing with Dad, snuggling Mom, and walking along the water.
We could not have asked for a more beautiful night at Sherwood Island and I cannot wait to document their sweet girls first year!
