If you feel like photoshoots have taken over this blog lately…. it’s because they have. I fluctuate between scrambling to meet deadlines at work (read: going through all sorts of exciting charts about urban migration in 19th century France because YAY) and scrambling to get photos back to people in time for those all important Christmas cards. The latter is far more enjoyable as it a) allows me to binge watch TV while editing and b) lets me look at the faces of my friends’ growing families. Like, remember this newborn baby? Who is now almost 2, soon to be a big sister, and basically ready for college? How did THAT happen? But enough of that — here are some fun shots from my quick afternoon with Mollie and her parents.

Lately, on InstagramBlew off naps, dumped an entire bag of goldfish all over the backseat, ignored implementation of good sleep habits for the baby, and endured a whole lot of car whining- all so we could pick berries in the sun. I have no regrets.Now 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.
