every now and then you have a photo shoot where everything aligns, and somehow all the muses strike at once and i'm able to capture something transcendent, something i don't even completely realize until i start editing the photos later. that's the way i feel about these pictures... that the beautiful Heyari family becomes in these photos the epitome of "FAMILY" -- beautiful, young, loving, blessed family.... that michaeline, the lovely mom, becomes somehow "every mom" in new love with her child... that's what i see here, and i hope these photos will always remind michaeline of these precious moments.... her handsome husband, nate, so loving toward them both, with the confident fragility of a new father at the beginning of his journey with his son.... and precious little ollie, with your big big eyes and curious smile... i hope you will look back upon these pictures and see how the malibu sun flared for you this day, and may the love of family always envelop you.
thank you, michaeline and nate, for letting me in to your beautiful circle. ollie is a treasure, and he is blessed to have you two to guide him through his life.
