let's get real. by any account this family has a crazy ton to be envious of. the house, the beauty, the one boy, one girl, even that giant pink balloon!!! i didn't feel myself longing for any of that. but how easily and readily this mama smiled? that's when i felt a spark of jealousy. the beauty of joy is as unique and inimatable as a fingerprint.

it was such an honor for me to photograph this sweet family in their portland home.
