Kairen (Kai for short) visited me in my Castle Rock studio all the way from Denver last month. He had the most beautiful skin and hair I think I’ve ever seen, and two remarkably kind and sweet parents as well! The love of this family was so palpable and real; the entire session was calm and quiet, just the soft whispers from mom and dad and easy conversation between the three of us. Kairen’s papa is from Mexico and throughout the session he would whisper in Spanish to soothe his baby boy. Mom and I discovered we both spent time in London in our early 20’s and bonded over our love of that city. A few weeks after the session I received the nicest card from this sweet family thanking me for their portraits. It totally made my day!
…And finally, to honor both mom’s and dad’s heritages we put together this set up to share with their families. I melt!
