I climbed into the backseat to distribute sippy cups and tuck napkins into their collars. The smell of vanilla americanos transforming our van into a small bistro. But instead of smooth jazz or classical piano playing over the speakers it was a chorus of “Are we there yet?”.
Forty five minutes and you’d think they’d tire of the phrase but I suppose the promise of playing in the park and 5 star breakfast of fruit pouches fueled them to keep going.
Hot coffee and slow mornings are as unfamiliar as the moon. A notion far out of reach, especially when you’re expecting to welcome your fourth baby into the world. But the weight of joy that these little ones bring far outweighs any simple pleasure found by a steaming cup of joe. That’s why it was so important to have photos to remember the season we were in.
As soon as I saw her work two years ago I knew I wanted Kelli of Kelli Lynn Photography to take our photographs. Her genuine smile and cheerful spirit was just what we needed on this chilly spring morning.
These photos are a celebration of waiting. A gentle reminder of how fleeting and priceless my time is as a mother.
Thank you from the deepest part of my heart, Kelli. We love you!
