When that first little dude arrives in your life, your world changes. And I’m not just talking about the sleep deprivation, or all of the madness that comes with keeping a tiny human alive – I’m talking about all the love that shows up when they do and how your heart swells. There’s this quote about how when you have a child you basically made the decision to allow your heart to live outside your body (I’m sure some author or poet wrote it – but gotta be honest here, I heard it first in an episode of Madmen, haha). But anyway, it’s true, I think so at least – and it’s a truly awesome experience. It’s love that allows you to keep moving through the hard stuff of parenting – and isn’t that true of anything in life?
Ryan and Elizabeth and their baby boy were a joy to capture in their apartment in Evanston this spring and I can’t wait to watch their family grow. So much love for this crew.
