This is my sweet friend Claire.

I met Claire almost 3 years ago through another mutual photo friend — and I loved her instantly. She is a wedding photographer, too. (see her amazing work @

She asked me if I would come over one morning and shoot her and Willa in their normal morning routine, and I am so glad she did. Watching Claire become a mama has been really amazing to witness. I’ve been very inspired by how her and her husband raise Willa, travel constantly, and focus on what’s important in life. They have been a great example to Nick and I, and it makes us excited for that time in our life. She already knows she’s my go-to for advice on how to balance wedding photography and being a parent (when the time comes of course!)

Going into someone’s home and photographing them in their element is definitely one of my favorite things to do. It feels so natural, so authentic. I love how every home is different and how the light falls in the different rooms… And you know I loved that Rouxby (their 8 year old pup) was around for some photos, too.

Grateful for this opportunity to photograph something so truly beautiful — a relationship between a mama and a baby.
