Right before I went home for Christmas break, I was able to take engagement photos for Eric and Katherine, whom I met at college. They got engaged over Thanksgiving break, and we took advantage of them passing through DC to get some pictures around Dupont Circle and the Mall. Here are some of my favorites, a little later than I anticipated!

Lately, on InstagramNow I know the truth behind photos of touching sibling moments like this. I know that I caught him trying to force feed her salami minutes earlier, that he routinely bites her feet, and that his version of “helping” to burp her borders on abusive. I know that the transition is hard, and love and jealousy and insecurity and anger and fear and excitement get all wrapped up together. But I also know that someday, he will have her back and she will keep his secrets. So for now, we slog on and rejoice as moments like this become more frequent.First trip as a family of four in the books! And it just. About. Killed. Us. Henry’s face is me eying any suggestion to travel ever again. 😒 ✈️🙅♀️But of course, I know that in time I’ll forget the chaos and crazy and exhaustion and remember nothing but the joy of watching my whole big family meet the newest member of our little family. By “in time,” I mean a verrrrryyyy long time.
