family of three.

we just had some photos taken of our little family of three & i'm so excited to share them with you!

i'm a big fan of having professional photographs taken to capture new seasons in life (see our engagement photos, wedding photos, maternity shoot & newborn photos). clearly we have no shortage of every day photos in our life (ha!), but there's something about pausing & making the investment to have an artist capture your family that really matters. 

the photos above are some of my favorite black & white images (up next, my favorites in full color!). so many of them had me nodding my head, "yes, that's so us right now." the thing i love most is that they're aren't posed -- it's just us being us. hanging out, loving on each other, being present. we started out at our house, then went to a park nearby. it was a wonderful afternoon.

we were really blessed to have tracey sanders capture our little family of three (if you're in virginia, i can't recommend her highly enough -- she put us at ease instantly, was so sweet with ellie & the photos speak for themselves!)
