Because time goes by so quickly, I wanted to ensure we got some photos taken so that in years to come, I can reminisce over how small she once was...with a glass full of wine...and a face full of tears, lol. We wanted photos that were relaxed and natural- I knew Alexa and Luke of NXN Photography would be the perfect pair to capture just that. They know how camera-shy I am, so we opted to shoot the photos at home and while interacting with Scarlett. We were so comfortable and relaxed, and I love that the photos reflect that. The third photo is one of my favorites. To get Scarlett to smile for the first time(s) we would trace the outline of a heart on her face and she would brighten right up. I was so excited to flip through and find that one! The first photo of Scarlett in the seeded eucalyptus showcases her personality to a tee. She is so curious. She watches and listens to everything. It's adorable. While taking this photo she was intently watching and listening to a dangling toy above.
I expected that Alexa and Luke would capture frame-worthy photos. What I didn't expect was the expression of love that they captured. The photos showcase the love we are feeling, perfectly.
