There are some people in my life that truly inspire me because of the intentional lives they live, and Nora and Aaron are definitely in that category for me. This story is a very special one, and I feel SO honored to be able to share part of it. The moment I met Norah, I knew I’d like her. As I got to know her more, she began to share with me about her husband’s brain tumor. A long (and very touching) story short, Nora and Aaron live their lives full of love for one another and enjoy life’s every detail. They are such a sweet couple and are so much fun to be around.
When Nora asked if I’d do a newborn session of their soon-to-be-born baby, I was thrilled! And about a week later, their little boy Ralph was born, exactly on his due date! They opted for a newborn session their home, so when little Ralph was just four days old, I was blessed to document their first full day home as a new family of three. I must admit, Nora doesn’t even look like she ever had a kid. Seriously.I love doing lifestyle sessions in homes. There is just something so personal and special about capturing real, life moments.
Nora and Aaron, thank you so much for allowing me to come to your home to capture some of the first moments of Ralph’s life. Little Ralph is blessed to have such amazing parents! And with your style and amazing ability to have fun and enjoy life in ANY situation, I know that Ralph is going to be the coolest kid in town because of what he learns from you.
By the way, I’d also like to say that Nora is also an AMAZING writer… you can check out her blog if you’re interested in learning about their journey: myhusbandstumor.tumblr.com.
I love this little face he made in the image above, it just cracks me up. Ralph is one serious dude!
