Maybe it’s because it’s almost Mother’s Day and I am good friends with this incredible mom (and dad), but I can’t help but feel my heartstrings being tugged as I write this post and look through these images. Capturing Jack and his new best buddy, Charlie, was magical in itself. I always love watching kids as they experience being a big brother or sibling for the first time, whether they are hilariously overprotective or are just so excited that they shower their little sibling with endless hugs and slobbery kisses. Jack totally owned the big brother role and I can already envision these two joking around, wrestling, and all the other things brothers do that will probably drive their mom, Carolyn, crazy.
But in this shoot, those quiet, candid moments were my favorite. Carolyn rocking Charlie to sleep while he stared back at her, and Jack hanging out with the two of them, proudly pointing out all the things he could see outside his window. In the midst of the chaos that two boys can bring, there are also those moments filled with so much love and adoration for their Mom, you feel like you could literally melt into pieces. At least that’s how I felt behind the camera during this session. And don’t worry, Sean, you made my heart melt a little too!
