The last time I saw this family, they had just welcomed their first baby boy into the family. I loved Mom & Dad immediately because they told me they met through their mutual love of singing. I have a soft spot for singers, since I used to do a fair amount of singing in college ( now I’m restricted to the kitchen, my car and the shower… someday maybe I’ll hit the stage again..#bucketlist)

I photographed this family just ten weeks after they welcomed their second baby into their home and I was so impressed with how much they had their act together — certainly more than I ever did after having my second!
