  • Morning with the Eastman Family | Documentary Session

  • Heather wanted something authentic to them.
    And so I suggested that I come over, and just spend the morning with them.
    She told me I could come in my PJ’s, that they would all still be in theirs.

    How wonderful.

    There is a certain sense of vulnerability with these kinds of sessions.
    And even she didn’t really know what this would look like.
    I knew…because I can see it as its happening.
    In showing her and Kory the sneak peeks from our session a few days later
    she told me that they were perfect.
    That they made her fall in love with her boys all over again.
    Can’t say that I blame her,
    the boys, all of ¬†them, including Kory…are wonderful.
    And capturing their sweet personalities
    in the home that the love and are growing up in,
    was a dream.

    One day, when she is gone, her family will have theses images,
    tangible memories of her as a mother, them together as a family
    and a little window into how blessed they are.
    Totally ordinary moments, filled with love and adventure.

    The moments of our everyday become the map of who we are.
    To me they are the most important things to document.
    And what we treasure most in our hearts.

    I hope you enjoy my morning with the Eastman Family.
    I sure did.
    And I cant wait to come back again next year.
