Everyone was snuggled together perfectly, calmly smiling, cute as ever, when all of a sudden, something happened. Ryan almost fell off of Lane’s lap, snorting and cracking up which made Lane grab her and bust out one if his signature, whole body laughs.
Lane has SO many great qualities but his throw-your-head-back-guffaw has got to be near the top of the list. The domino effect was almost instant and everyone dissolved in to side-splitting laughter. We’re lucky that new baby Ford remained securely in Lane’s arms. He’s a pro at dad-ing so, truthfully, I wasn’t worried. I’m not at liberty to tell you the cause of the ruckus but my stomach hurt afterwards. It’s my favorite kind of moment; when things go off plan, in the best possible way.
It was a treat to be back with these guys as a newly minted family of five, celebrating the arrival of precious baby Ford. Katie has always made motherhood look easy and seeing the twins being so tenderhearted with their new baby brother was moving. Each of them already had their own unique, gentle snuggling style.
We made portraits that paid homage to the newborn portraits I’d made of Reid and Ryan seven years earlier, acknowledging that Ford is definitely his own man.
These are three very loved kids.
