COLONIE PORTRAITS | THE SANDER FAMILY
“No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you’re the only one who knows the sound of my heart from the inside.”
― Kristen Proby, Fight with Me
As a new(ish) mother who has a blossoming love for all things baby related, I was overjoyed when the Sander family asked me to come to their home to photograph their family once again, this time with a new addition – baby William! I visited them on Valentine’s Day morning, and in typical Sander family fashion we picked a day to work together that was beyond freezing (this was the morning it was -14 degrees F when I left my house…)! It was no problem, though, because little snuggle bug Will, at just 9 days old, had no plans of leaving his cozy house.
It’s rare that I photograph the same subjects in the same location, but it felt right for the Sanders. I had flashbacks to October 2014 when Anna was just five months old and it was super sweet to see how she has grown and is now a big sister. We tried to revisit one particular photo that we all love of Michael, Jaimie, and Anna on the bed – but this time there were four people! I also loved how their dog Ben was following us around the house and trying to get in the mix.
Welcome earthside, beautiful little William! And to Anna, welcome to the world of sisterhood, from one big sister to another.
