Big Sister, Big Announcement : Dayton OH Family Photography

I did a very special photo session in September for these lovely friends, and had to keep it all a secret until the news was public that their family was growing. In that time, I forgot to blog about it! So it was a lovely little surprise to find the session featured on the Lemonade & Lenses blog today! Here they are, along with the little blurb I wrote about our time together.

When my dear friend asked me to help announce an addition to their family, I was delighted to bring to life her idea of photographing their daughter practicing for a new little sibling. Here’s the best part – big sister didn’t know she was going to be a big sister until this night! You can watch mom and dad telling her the happy news at the end of the series of photographs, and their joy is just palpable. I may have been hiding a few happy tears behind my camera – it was such an honor to be a part of this special night!

Look at their joy! It's almost palpable, and I'm pretty certain I was tearing up behind the camera by this point. :)

This is the stuff life is made of, isn't it?! These are the moments you want to last just a little longer. I was so deeply honored to be a part of this special evening with my friends - I hope these images really do help you relive the happiness!
