“I met Julia and her sweeter than sweet boys last spring for their first in home family session. Julia is not only an amazing photographer in her own regard, but has a style that is fit for a magazine cover.
I came back this year to document an afternoon at home with her and her boys before they welcome a new baby, a GIRL, to their family this summer. They will also be moving near the same time so it seemed the perfect opportunity to capture a typical afternoon before their life completely changes again.
Julie told me that the boys’ favorite lunch is crepes and her oldest son especially is a superb crepe maker! They had great fun showing me how they create their lunch and help mama too. And of course no crepe lunch is complete without some chocolate on the face.
As a mother to 2 girls myself, I always marvel at the relationship between a mother and her sons. It’s amazing to see the admiration they have for her and just cannot give her enough hugs and kisses. Any chance for afternoon snuggles with mom and these 2 precious boys will take it.
We ended our afternoon with lots of books, hugs, kisses and snuggles and a bit of showing off their muscles to boot. They are so excited for their new little sister and I know Julia is excited for a big dose of pink coming her way this summer!”
