Ironic story – Suannah earlier last year emailed me about #birthphotography in Phoenix but the timing was iffy back when Josh and I were still contemplating our move to Portland, Oregon. My intuition was right since we left in early September and these #tworiffic twins were born after we relocated. It rips my heart to refer someone out but I was so grateful that I got a chance to meet and document this family’s new normal with twins and multiples and tandem nursing on my trip back down the following November.
Also – Susannah is actually the cousin to Sarah (gorgeous mom in my last blog), my birth mom from last July. These ladies got to be pregnant together and now live in the same luxury apartment complex right across the breezeway where frequent adorable baby and toddler playdates are a thing 😍

I have 1 little brother and when my mom was pregnant all I wanted in the world was a baby sister. Even after Josh (yes my brother is Josh too!) arrived I insisted there was a mistake and he should be a girl. On my dad’s side of the family I was the only girl and desperate for some estrogen in my life. Nowadays I can’t imagine him any other way and love our dynamic. One day Zeb will realize that he’s got that times two. Should be interesting to see what three can get themselves into 😄
I want to snuggle and hug every little gal that I’ve photographed and just tell them tales of how amazing and strong they are. How one day they will be the movers and the shakers and we will look to them.
Nose squishies – my preferred method of connection. Nothing quite so satisfying as grabbing my child or husband into a hug and just really getting my nose in there. They smell comforting and familiar and something I don’t want to ever let go of.
