This is an emotional session to look back on. I did this session right in the midst of the pandemic. I stayed back and kept my distance, as hard as it was from this beautiful family. We have known this crew for a really long time now, and photographed Tarah and Trevor’s wedding, and since we’ve had family swim dates and hang outs, Gareth and Trevor have planned runs together. Not to mention maternity and newborn sessions for some of these kiddos! They’re just amazing. I’m welling up with tears remembering this shoot. It was SO good to see them, and I was so grateful we had figured out a way to document their new addition with the Brophy Outdoor Newborn/Family Session. But man all I wanted to do was give them a big hug. Because if you know the Brophy’s, you KNOW what huggers they are!
But we did it. We settled in, we relaxed, we spent the evening with the kiddos playing and picking flowers. I remember this evening being a highlight for me during a really uncertain time.
I have so much love and respect for Tarah and Trevor. Their energy is contagious, their kindness is unparalleled, and I just adore anytime we get to spend some time with them. This is a very unconventional newborn session for us. We don’t offer outdoor newborn sessions (maybe we should in the summer! I love these so much), I’m incredibly proud of how these turned out, and I’m so happy they trusted me to capture Oakland joining their family.
We just love you guys!
