Whew... I didn't think this would be as hard as my best of 2017 weddings recap. But it was. Just when I thought I had it narrowed down, I would see another photo and go "awww but look at how cute that photo is too". While the title of this post states it is my best newborn and family photos from 2017, it really is just a very small set of my best. Every family I worked with this year had a story worth telling and they all had one thing in common. That one thing was a whole lot of love for their family. I am so thankful to each and every family that I worked with to document a special day and time in their lives. Wishing lots of health and happiness to this special group in 2018.
Most people do not know that I spend my wedding season in NY and most of the off season in Germany. It is a bit of a crazy lifestyle, but we do it to be together as a family. There are a few months out of the year that our family is split between two countries. Knowing my husband will be without his energetic tribe for those months absolutely breaks my heart, but knowing that he fully supports me and my business fills it with an odd feeling of comfort.
During my Winter's abroad, I get to meet some wonderful people, like this beautiful lady and her pup. She is also an incredibly talented wedding planner based out of Germany. Her maternity session and story were featured recently on The Fount Collective. Enjoy just a few of my favorites, including her devoted and loving pup below!
