We NEVER do this. I mean, like, ever.
But you’ll see in just one sweet second why I’m making an exception in the rule of blog law in Youngren-land.
Jeff and I will photograph lovely baby, maternity, and family portraits for our past couples, but since it’s not our particular specialty, I don’t usually blog about it here. We feature weddings, engagements, and anniversary sessions. That’s it.
But then walks in Team Higgins. They told me that they love urban architecture. That they love anime, the beach, and art museums. That their daughter Emma has blue hair and is studying design in LA, and their son Ethan is a braniac that’s into science and is building his own computer. They love coffee, Disneyland, and each other.
And yes, they do love each other. When so many families are disconnected from one another, these four showed up to our session and encouraged each other. They laughed together, they were completely authentic, and they were grounded in their identities.
Families like this should be celebrated around the world, which is why I’m posting their sweet faces today. This was the kind of session that makes my heart explode with joy!
Enjoy this beautiful family and our time we spent together in downtown San Diego!
Team Higgins: GUYS. You nailed it. Like super totally nailed, and Jeff and I were honored to meet the four of you. Never lose your sweet kindness towards each other and always have one another’s backs like you did with us. It was beautiful and refreshing to see, and we were thrilled to capture this time in your lives for you!
