I met Christine in 2010 (wow) at the very first A Practical Wedding DC Bookclub. We sat next to eachother at the brunch, and my first impression (that this lady was relatively quiet? haha) turned out to be waaaaay off. Happily we have now spent enough time together that I know how wrong I was, and I was so happy when she asked me to take these photos (to be used in a baby announcement in the near future!)
As we were setting up to take the photos, Christine said something that really resonated for me: that these “were the photos the kid is going to look at someday, to think about what his parents were like.” Wow, no pressure! But truthfully, I like the idea of a session like this as snapshot of a baby family, in a time when it is preparing to welcome a new member. So without further interruption: Christine, Leaf, and the adorable pup Louis Tully.
