Baby Thomas at 4 months

When she told me there was "panic" in her email - I sure didn't sense it. Instead I sensed the ease, calm, confident mama I've come to know over this past year. Abby wrote me to tell me that their moving date had been finalized so a 6 month (or so) baby session probably wouldn't work any more - because of course their move-date had been moved up (is it ever moved back? I'm not sure that even happens!). Would I be able to squeeze them in? I moved things around & we made it happen - I just had to see this smiling face again!

Can you blame me? :)

I also know how much this time means to Abby & Pete - their love for Thomas is soft, gentle and palpable. I can't explain it any other way. I am lucky to have spent this past year with them, documenting their journey into parenthood but more than that to witness how they incorporate a loving item into every photo shoot (this time hand-made blankets from their dear friends Kris M. and Sue L.) and how much they incorporate their loving selves into every click of the shutter.

These are the memories that will hang on their walls in their next home, in their next city, in the next state. These are the moments that will watch Baby Thomas grow.
