I have to start this post by saying how much I appreciate and love Las Madres. It has been such a gift to meet the moms that have supported me in raising my, now almost 5 year old, Ava. And now I get to meet more and more moms through the amazing women who refer other las madres friends to me for photography. I’ve never met one that I couldn’t relate to. It’s just awesome to know we’re all out there doing the same job…learning how to be mothers to these little beings that make us overflow with love. Sometimes I think about it when I am up in the middle of the night nursing. I know I’m not doing it alone. In fact, I’m pretty sure a face that I know and have met (and probably photographed) is most likely doing the same. It’s a great bond that we share.

This was a fun shoot for me for many reasons. First off, I got to meet a new family, which I always love. Second, the star of the show, baby Rory, was born on March 13th, which is the day I was born 33 years ago! And third, I just fell in LOVE with the Dittmar’s home. Oh my! It was all character–so unique, and full natural light. It reminded of New England homes, which I will always love in my heart. Just being there brought a smile to my face for that reason.

But back to to the main purpose of this post! Introducing….. Baby Rory!

She was such a good baby for all the jostling around that she experienced. She is little sister to Big Bro, Cason, who is a ham and a total sweetheart, reading books and kissing on his new sister. I really enjoyed spending time with the Dittmars. Thank you for inviting me into your home, and BIG Congratulations on the sweet new addition to your family.
