When my friend Andrea asked me to photograph her and her daughter Kiana my heart skipped a beat! They not only have these amazing smiles, they are GORGEOUS! I knew that this "Mommy and Me" session was going to be so fantastic even if the weather was a bit brisk for October.
I have to admit that I have had multiple sessions at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts and every time I go there I find something new to discover! I was so excited that Andrea picked this location for their session. She has this unbelievable knowledge of plant life that I envy so much. AND....you know what else...She has this quiet, intellectual sweetness that when you are in her presence you feel so special to be there. Her daughter Kiana possesses this same quality, with a combination of goofiness of course! I am honored to be a part of their lives.
After this session was over I reflected on how far I have come since I started this journey. I am so fortunate to have supportive, beautiful, encouraging friends like Andrea in my life. AND...I could not have done it without my amazing community of family and friends. Thank you Andrea and Kiana for allowing me to document your sweet and special love!
