I consider myself a very lucky lady. Seriously, how stinking cute is baby Leo? I am thrilled to share my personal favorite images of Leo’s six month milestone session along with his two mommies, Gwen and Rosie. Gwen and I have known each other for many years. We both have worked with children and I always knew that she would make a great mom herself. Unfortunately, we have lost touch when I moved back to Europe for a few years, but thankfully rekindled our friendship when I came back to the United States. Gwen told me that she was expecting her first baby and that she is married to a woman. I was a bit surprised, but very happy for her, of course. When I met Rosie, I knew they were a great match.😍
Gwen and I obviously had a lot of catching up to do. She told me about the difficulties they had conceiving a child. Let me tell you, baby Leo is truly a love child. When I see these three together, I see nothing but love for one another and pure happiness. I took Leo’s six month session at Ida Lee Recreation Park in Leesburg, Virginia. Gwen and Rosie had seen one of my recent blog entries of baby Aidan as well as baby Henry and asked for a similar setting for their images. They fell in love with the wheelbarrow that I have used, so they asked me to bring it. With fall around the corner, I suggested to use dark red apples as a prop for their session. The ladies liked the idea and agreed. I love how the apples and Leo’s blue eyes stand out. Definitely a great choice for him.🍎 When I finished taking his pictures on the blanket we proceeded to the basket as well as the wheelbarrow. Leo was a bit desinterested and tough to entertain. Gwen told me that he didn’t nap and that he’s teething. When I finished taking their family pictures, Gwen sat down to nurture Leo. I love capturing the bond between mother and child. To me, there’s nothing more precious than that. Leo fell fast asleep. It was the perfect time to capture some of his tiny little details.😁
Dear Gwen and Rosie, thank you so much for letting me capture this milestone in Leo’s life. He truly is a blessing and I couldn’t be happier for all of you.
