Noticing the Details – The Prietto Family Session

Those eyelashes.

There was a quiet pause in our session. He was working to somehow unwrap a snack, and as I was sitting close by, talking with mom. I noticed the length of his eyelashes and an instant, that feeling of of a need to capture this made me lift my camera, focus and click. I think sometimes mom’s and dad’s worry when we take breaks in a session. I could think of lots of legitimate reasons why. Maybe one being because we are using up the valuable time you are paying for to capture everything. I get that. But I also have a great trust in the process, and I want you to too. I’ve been doing this for long enough to know that those moments when I am watching, not clicking, are when I am seeing. Noticing the details and reveling in them. The thought to heart experience is fast for me; and luckily, because kids are on the move!

So much of how I photograph you is about how I know you, so those quiet moments are never wasted moments. They are inspiration for me, and connection for us to get more intimate portraits of the most important details of your favorite people.

Finnegan Frampton

He is finally here! Finnegan was born on April 13th. Welcome to this world, sweet boy. We already love you so.

You guys know Brendy as one of the creatives I love to work with. Incorporating her into our sessions adds so much detailed beauty through her warm inspired touch. By now she has turned into a really good friend as well. As this munchkin was growing in her we would get together and talk about being mothers, about being wives, about life and what our experiences have taught us, or what we hope they will. These kinds of relationships are invaluable to me. It’s so important to me to be able to relate to others on the great, amazing love in our life, and the challenge that drags us down some days in boredom, or comparison, or a fussy kid, or an irritated mind; whether it’s the day, or a phase, or something that persists, it helps to know we’re not alone in it. The day I sent her these final images was the 1st day she was alone with both of her boys. I remember feeling so accomplished on that day for me. I even vacuumed! I was in slight shock that I actually survived the day, but it built my confidence up. I recently read somewhere, “Mothering begins and never ends”. That’s 24 hours a day, non-stop until they get big kind of a job. With mother’s day coming up, I’ve been reflecting on the true gift motherhood has been for me and how I can’t (and even before I had kids, could never) have imagined myself without them. I also never could have imagined how beautiful and unique they would be and how the bits and pieces of Brad and I and our parents and siblings would come together to create a completely new and unique human.

I mean, wow.

Just so lucky, and sometimes too bogged down to feel it. But that’s ok. That’s motherhood. It’s perfect and messy and irritating and exhilarating.

One of my mama friends in my life posted this article to fb recently and I wanted to share it with all the mamas that may check in on this blog from time to time. I loved the relief I felt when I read it and my sister and I agreed, we’ll refer back to it on the days that are harder. To remind us to go easy and be in the moment.

The Moseley Famliy

I’ve been dying to get this family in front of my camera since their third baby was born! Oh, baby Reece is such a sweetheart, and a beautiful addition to their family. I’m so glad she’s here now and she let us doll her up with a special flower crown made by the talented, Brendy Frampton. We had lots of laughs together over the course of the session, because as usual, nothing is ever perfect, and sometimes the kids are done before we start. I totally get that. Such troopers, those handsome boys. And I know they won’t regret it, or hold mom accountable once they see how absolutely adorable they were! I can barely stand it. This family could be in a magazine. Their shoot was so light and airy, just like summer feels right now. I loved it! Thank you Moseley’s for asking me to photograph you! xo
