I have a confession, I’m a stalker. I stalked Vanessa and her family for years, secretly hoping they’d one day hire me. And look! My stalking paid off!! Ok, so I might not be a “true” stalker, but I did secretly hope to photograph this awesomeness one day. I first met Vanessa a few falls ago at a Mom’s playdate (for all of you Mom’s with young children, if you’re looking to meet other awesome Mom’s I highly recommend MMOCO.) I thought she was so cute and her smile just lit up her entire face. She was wearing her son Andrew in the Ergo and I thought, hey, I used to wear my kids in the Ergo…we have something in common, and I ran on over and introduced myself blabbering on about the Ergo like a dork. I even remember she was wearing a pair of rice bag Keen Mary Janes that I coveted. Goodness, I really do sound like a stalker don’t I? I promise, I’m harmless. =) So yeah, you can imagine my excitement when she contacted me for a session. And once you see their gorgeousness, you’ll see why I was so excited.

Thank you so much Vanessa, Marc, and Andrew for a superfun afternoon playing with rusty nails and spiders. =) And a super huge thank you to Ina for allowing me to use your amazing property. Off to stalk my next family. Joking….kind of.
