“Home is wherever I’m wih you.”
These are the sweet and true lyrics from one of my current favorite songs by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. It resonates with me because I’ve moved so often in the last 10 years. I think it’s true- you are at home with the people you love, or in other words- “home is where the heart is.”
But it’s not entirely true. I believe the space in which we live our lives, love our spouses, care for our children, eat with our friends, is also very special. Morning, afternoon, and night, our lives are created in our specific space, our homes.
And that’s why I LOVE this session with this sweet family. They love their home, especially their front porch, because it is where they have laid their roots for so many years. It is a place they cherish and want to remember. They’ll be able to look back at these pictures and remember that little tricycle, the rocking chairs, and the time they spent together there.
Plus, this brother-sister pair are too cute. Little brother can move around on this knees like nothing I’ve seen. His curls and big blue eyes will melt you heart. Big sister is full of play and wonder. She’s growing up, riding her tricyle, talking about her preschool friends, and jumping off the porch.
What a pleasure it was to be with them in their beautiful home.
