I have to share this blog post my dear friend Staci wrote about our sweet Maya, titled Little Miss Sassafras.
Staci has captured our family in photos for the past 3+ years: maternity for Maya, newborn, 6-mth, 1-yr, 18-mth, 2-yr, maternity for Ben, newborn for Ben, and now 3-yr for Maya (not to mention our holiday cards). She knows us — with all our quirks — and truly has a way with her camera to show the best sides of each of us. And she’s one of my closest friends, which I think adds a special, intimate dimension to her work. (Love you, Stac!)
We did this shoot at the Grand Rapids Public Museum a couple weeks ago and we just love how they turned out. As Staci said in her post, this was the first shoot where not only did Maya really cooperate, but she was a total ham for the camera — letting her true colors show. I hope you enjoy a glimpse into our crazy little family — here are some of my faves from the shoot.
