Living abroad sometimes feels like you’re living life in fast forward mode. One summer, you’re visiting your friends who are happily settling into their brand new house. The next summer’s vacation – Bam! – they are a family of three with an adorable blue-eyed baby girl.
So on one of Augusts’s toasty Sundays, The Delany house was buzzing with friends and visiting family as I entered for our pre-planned photography session. Breakfast was being prepared in the kitchen by some, bedrooms and bathrooms were occupied by others, while the busy parents were hurrying around trying to accommodate everyone and get ready. The baby was being passed on from hands to hands, helping her fix her hair, change her diapers and clothes, like a tiny super star that she was (and is).
It was an uncharacteristically busy Sunday for Katie, Ryan and baby Quinn, but we were determined to make it work. Fortunately, family and friends turned into very helpful assistants with one holding my light, someone else – the reflector, grandmom was helping keep the baby entertained and giggling and someone’s niece was helping move accessories in their right positions. It was chaotic, it was noisy, but it was beautiful how it all came together in the following images.
We then moved to Quinn’s room for a change of atmosphere, feeding time and more personal moments with mom.
I love how the following image showcases how tiny Quinn used to be in comparison to how much she has grown already.
Finally, I asked the family to grab their sunny accessories for an outdoor shoot. These bright, colorful shots would have to be my favorite from this entire session!
Thank you to Katie, Ryan and Quinn Delaney for an amazing time, allowing me to capture your family’s memories and for keeping it cool during such a busy time of your lives. You guys rock!
