I’m a big music person and often times, when I’m out shooting or looking at certain images, a specific song will pop up in my head. If you were here with me now while I write this post, you’d hear the melody of “Rosie” by John Mayer playing in the background. It was the obvious song to immediately start playing in my head when mom, Amy, told me their newest daughter was named Rosie. Whenever I’m in need of a mood-boosting song, this is one of the jams I’ll add to the queue. While the lyrics tell the story of a love lost, the melody is relaxed, simple, and sweet. The song just makes you feel good.
My session with Rosie, and her big sister, Izzy, was no different. This family put me at ease immediately; their little girls full of light and simply beautiful. You can see it in their big, bright eyes that stared back at me through my lens. From now on, I know when I push play and hear “Rosie” start playing, I’ll have one very special girl in mind, and the moments I got to share with her amazing family.
