Something I love about what I do is I get to watch people's stories unfold. I get to capture the most exciting times of people's lives and then see what happens next. Talk about the best job ever.
I photographed Brooke and Beau's wedding in 2014, and I can honestly say they are two of the sweetest, most down-to-earth people I've ever met. It's no surprise that baby Gia inherited those genes. Once I swaddled her, she fell right asleep and didn't wake up until the very end of the session! Talk about a dream.
Everybody knows I'm a sucker for a good rug, and Gia's nursery did not disappoint! I really love all of the photos of Gia on the different patterns and textures from her nursery. The photos have such personality and uniqueness--I love that. Her big brother Isaak made an appearance for a few of the photos, but hanging out with friends is WAY cooler than newborn photos at that age, so we let him off the hook pretty early.
Basketball is pretty much life for the Gerber family, so I made sure to bring my Thunder Up headband from local makers Love Well Handmade for a few photos. It looked absolutely darling on Miss Gia Ryan, but that's nothing short of a surprise!
