Then and Now Project

The other day I was looking at my nieces newborn pictures, yes I cried a little, because how is it possible for 6 years to go so fast!?

Which led me to thinking about all of the sweet faces I’ve been able to photograph at different stages of their life over the last 17 years! 17 years!! 

And how cool would it be to put portraits from Then and Now side by side. Showing just how much a little one can grow in just a handful of years. 

If you made it to this page, well, it means I was thinking of you! 

Next month I’ll begin capturing photographs as a part of  this special project  and I would absolutely love if you and your family were a part of it.
