ilene + family

I am finally finishing up my Mother's Day mini-sessions! These were so much fun for me, and I loved all of the wonderful families I got to meet over those weekends. For my last session I got to meet Ilene and her sweet family ... 

Ilene is possibly one of the nicest people I have ever met, and I loved the time I got to spend with her and her beautiful family. It's interesting how I often feel connected to families that have two boys since I have two boys myself. Ilene's sons are a couple of years older than mine, but about the same age difference, so the whole time during the shoot, I kept noticing similarities and found myself imagining Rowan and Weston in a couple of years. I love how being a parent creates this bond and connection with other families, even if you don't know them well. And I'm so thankful that this job allows me to meet other families. 

Thank you to Ilene, and all of the wonderful mothers and families who I got to photograph during my mini-sessions. I loved every minute!
