Ronna and I met when I worked as a makeup artist at MAC Cosmetics. Our paths seemed to run in similar directions all the time, and soon we found ourselves both working at the same store location, holding the same management positions, and even traveling and rooming together on a work trip to New York! I guess it shouldn’t have been much of a surprise to us then when we discovered yet another life similarity: we were both pregnant with our first babies and due within just weeks of each other! Perhaps we’re kindred spirits and we don’t even know it?? 😉
Fast forward to a year later– I’ve now got my little girl Aaliyah and she’s got her ridiculously adorable little rockstar Izaak! To say that I was flattered when she asked me to photograph them is a huge understatement– I was beyondthrilled and honored to be able to capture this little moment in time for them and their growing new family. They were SO natural to shoot, and all rocked it out as a family in every shot like pros. I think Izaak could seriously give Baby Zoolander a run for his money! No joke. Check out a few of my favorite shots~
To Ronna and Sjon, thanks SO MUCH for welcoming me with open arms into your home and making the shoot so fun and easy! Your natural love and affection for each other and for Izaak warmed me to the core and made my job feel absolutely effortless. To Izaak– I hope our plans for an arranged marriage pan out and we can one day see little mixed Filipino/Icelandic/Indian/Vietnamese grandchildren running around!
Lots of Love,
