The Dahlgrens on the farm | Lifestyle Family
Four going on five littles and when Cristina sent me an email to let me know they'd like to do a family lifestyle session before they added their fifth babe (a boy!) I was too pumped. I've photographed these guys since they tied the knot and have enjoyed their children so much. They wanted to shoot on her grandmother's farm before it possibly was no longer an option for enjoying. Y'all know I love an heirloom or tradition more than the next guy. So good. Love the whispy grass, the girls' dresses and the way we just wandered all over. Free range babies. I also adore the way both Patrick and Cristina calmly meet all the needs of this little pack, with joy. It is such an encouragement in a stage of life that can be utterly exhausting. It's easy to watch shows like Parenthood and long for an adult crew of kids so close together, but the thought of them so small overwhelms me. Being around the Dahlgrens makes even the little days with a crew so close together seem so easy and enjoyable. I hope you can feel that same sweet intimacy between the children that I got to experience. The way they all play with one another, yet each have their own strong personalities. They way they're each adored by their parents. So good and such a blessing to me to spend a morning with them. Love y'all - mean it!
