at home with jill and isla

Jill and I were introduced through a mutual friend who thought we’d hit it off.

Jill is also a fab local photographer, and my friend though we had similar styles which is a huuuuge compliment because Jill’s house is waaaay cuter than mine.  Ha.

But she is right about the hitting it off part.

We met for coffee one day when both of us miraculously had sitters lined up, and it was so refreshing talking shop and Wichita and everything else in between.

She’s due with her second baby girl early this fall and asked me to come and share an afternoon with she and Isla, preserving this time that only they share, these normal moments that are integrated into their every day right now, that don’t feel like much, but are actually the most important.

All of these every day, unnoticed moments actually add up to be the big moments, the little things we’ll miss when these babies of ours are grown.

The flattering imitation, the way they sit upon your lap.  The way they look at you like you’re their entire world.

Because you are.

I see that, and it feels important to share with you.

To see you like your children do.

And so, the way Isla sees her mama, Jill, below.

"It's a feeling."

One of the best ways I've heard my work described.

It's like a dream you can't quite get back to, but you know was so so good because when you woke up you had a smile on your face, and you keep trying desparately to remember all of the vivid details you can be present in that in-between state for just a little more  - the warmth of being together, the sounds, the laughter...the feelings.

Here's more on what our work together could be.
