Newborn Session // Declan

097
As I sit here writing this sipping on my morning coffee, listening to some Bon Iver, I find myself contemplating what is truly important in life. I can tell you without a doubt it is not your it is not your bank account, 401k or other assorted material things. It is love, specifically unconditional love given to us from our families, friends and lovers.

Years later, when Lee brought Mariah in to our friend group, it was obvious that they were a perfect fit for each other. Any spare time they have together is spent hunting, fishing, looking for arrowheads, and everything else in the great outdoors. It’s rare to see a couple...
