Everyone always tells you how fast time goes once you have a baby.
I remember towards the end of my pregnancy the days felt so incredibly long. It was like I was going to be pregnant forever and all I wanted to do was meet him.
Then he arrived and the first three months of his life felt even longer. The endless cycle of nurse, change, eat, sleep, repeat.
And then BOOM, just like that, he turned 6-months old.
My pregnancy had come and gone. Those first few months, a memory.
Deep down I know every moment is fleeting.
I know that my 6-month old will soon be one year, then he'll be two and before I know it he'll be starting school.
We have a lot of living to do from now until then and I know it's going to go fast.
That's why I am so determined to document our life.
I can't hold on forever but with these photos come memories that will last a lifetime.
Jessica is an incredible photographer. I've been a fan of her work for a long time. There's so much truth and aliveness to her photos. Once I had Thomas George, I knew we had to get on the other side of her camera.
It's wild because I've actually known Jessica since we were really young. Our mothers were close friends while we were growing up and her family is sprinkled in many of my earliest memories. How cool for us to be reconnecting in this way!
My sister Leah and niece Coco joined us for a warm summer evening in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our babes did so good during the entire session and our images turned out better than I could have imagined. Honestly, I can't wait to do this again.. next time with the hubby too!
