“Happiness isn’t happiness without a violin playing goat.” You may be wondering what this goat business has to do at all with this post. It happens to be one of my favorite quotes from the movie, Notting Hill. Every time I think of the word happiness it comes to mind. What is happiness? The dictionary defines it as feeling or showing pleasure or contentment. Obviously it can mean different things to everyone… but sometimes what makes you happy today doesn’t mean it will continue to do so forever. When I started to shoot this session there was one thing that was completely indisputable. This bundle of joy has perfectly fulfilled the ‘forever in happiness charm’ for this family’s life. Sometimes you come across families that are very open manifesting affection and LOVE towards each other, and you can’t help but think… These people are truly happy. That’s how I felt photographing the following family. For an afternoon I found myself witnessing the love that they have towards their new baby boy and each other… absolutely touching and wonderful. There were a lot of pictures that I wanted to post, and even narrowing it down became a little difficult – These are my favorite from our session together. Pure love. Utter happiness.
The joy of having your baby at home at last was easily reflected by these loving parents. Their first baby boy, Brody, stole our hearts with his sweet cuddles and alertness to mom and dad. Thank you Candice for inviting me to your home to photograph this special time of your lives. Who would of known that this would of been the beginning to our friendship and photo journey.
