It was when their son Eddie was a baby that I first began photographing this family. Over the years, they’ve invited me in closer to photograph them in various seasons and fashions: with extended family, in their home, mini-sessions, and even the birth of their daughter Veronica. This time, they also agreed to be among the first families to receive a Keepsake Film, one of my newest offerings here at Brooke Collier Family Photojournalism + Films. And I’m so pleased with how it came out. Loretta (the mama) said: “Makes me cry with joy!” Perfect.
This session was also a bit of a farewell session as at the time of the filming they had recently signed a purchase agreement on their first home, which means that this apartment in which both of their babies were born (hello fellow home birth mama!) would bot be their home for much longer. Besides all that, Veronica had just begun taking her first toddling steps (I love the characteristic wobbly gait of brand new walkers, don’t you?).
Enjoy…. (and after the film there are some still images, too).
In the midst of shooting film clips, I was also able to grab some still images. :)
