The newest edition to my friends’ family is little Hattie. I photographed her big sister Josie at the end of 2011, and at the end of 2012, just before Christmas, I had the pleasure of getting snap-happy with Hattie (love her name!).
And, like her older sister, Hattie showed off her lungs for me with a surprisingly loud wail that sounds more like a 6 month old than newborn. And I fully admit that I love pictures of crying babies. They unleash their full emotions, something that as an adult, I wish I could do more of. Here she is on the cusp of letting go. I love those in-between moments.
I adore this family of four.
