Downtown Fall Session with the Turpen Family
This session is pretty special to me. On World Prematurity Day, I photographed the Turpen family, who I first met in the Neonatal ICU when Molly was 34 weeks gestation. Now, she’s a lively 3-year-old!!! It was just the coolest thing to see her as a healthy Big Kid. Not only is Molly three, but somehow time’s flown so fast that Lauren and Kenny have had another baby, Nolan, AND he’s already one!
Our session time was fun and full of wiggles, throwing leaves, and candy bribes, ha! 🙂 I’m drafting a proposal to hire Nolan as a full-time child model and Molly as an assistant for my business. He was just killin’ it with heart-melting smiles! While I was setting up a shot of just Lauren, Kenny, and Nolan, Molly stepped in the shot and started adjusting their pose and clothes, then ran back to me and said, “There!” as if she had created a masterpiece. It was the cutest thing!
Lauren and Kenny, it’s also so neat to see you guys on the other side of NICU life, thriving as a family at home all together. It really was an honor to capture this season of you lives. Here are some previews of our time together. I hope they bring smiles to you like they do for me. 🙂
