family photojournalism :: bedtime for lou

this the promised follow-up post to the family photojournalism session i posted a couple of days ago. it's a story within a story. 

at the tail end of my evening with the gadziemski family, allie asked me to photograph her as she put her youngest to bed. louis is two years old, and their last baby. knowing it's your last makes you savor things like bedtime routines all the more. there's a magic around this time for them, and she wanted that documented. 

hold your babies close, mamas. stop to see and savor them. this is the good stuff. and it's fleeting.
