...the second reason is that this is the second time I've gotten to work with this crew! Just about three years ago, Jonah was turning one and we had a fabulous little summery morning session...


And the third reason that I'm so glad for these photos is that sweet little Miss Willa is a rainbow baby. I'm always humbled to document families in all of their forms and facets, but this was a little extra somethin' somethin' to include and honor Elijah in our session. 


And we really went rainbow! I loved getting to use fresh flowers that've been really trying to usher us in to spring (even if the weather isn't...) to bring color and texture to some of our photos.


Thanks so much to these guys for the sweet session! -MEJ
