When I was just starting my business, I ran a giveaway for a photo session, and it so happened that the winner was a mom who lived one block from us! She ended up becoming a friend and connecting me up with an amazing group of local moms.
Sarah is one of them. Her toddler, Owen, is just a little younger than Liam, and she was one of the first amongst us to enter the world of second-time-motherhood with the lovely Isobel, just 2 months old at the time of our High Line photo session at the end of October. I was thrilled when Sarah got in touch to schedule their family session, not least because she is an avid knitter. During our planning consultation, I encouraged her to include lots of handknits in the wardrobe for the day!
She didn't disappoint - look at Owen's gorgeous orange sweater, and Isobel's purple pants, both knitted by Sarah!
In fact, I loved the ensemble of the entire family, and as they had preferred candids to posed photos, we had so much fun just hanging out.
Owen shares Liam's obsession with construction vehicles, so it was very familiar territory for me.
And how cute is Isobel?
Sarah, James, Owen and Isobel - thank you so much for such a fun photo session, and I can't wait to get you your order!
You can see the full slideshow here.
If you're a friend of the family, please leave a comment below wishing them well. You'll also help them win a complimentary 8x10 print if they get 25 comments, a mounted 11x14 print if they get 50 comments and a beautiful 10x10 canvas gallery wrap if they get 75 comments, all by December 10th, 2011!
And if you're interested in a photo session yourself for next year (I'm fully booked for this year) sign up for a complimentary be inspired mini sample kit and you'll also be the first to know when the 2012 High Line session dates open up.
