Meet the newest Domenico, Nico. Nick (Dad) is a bar tender at one of my favorite bars, and his family owns the coffee shop I just started working for, which adds even more sweetness for me to this shoot. I can't get over how precious Kate and Nick are with Nico; they've adapted to this new life with such grace and awe, and it's truly been an honor to watch their family grow.

These are actually some of my favorite moments to capture. It's wonderful to have pictures of those you love at their best, looking and feeling amazing, ready for the camera. But, equally as valuable are the moments like this - that capture life's messy, emotional side; because as the movie Inside Out so accurately depicts (I love kids movies and I am not ashamed, haha), sadness and pain and the heaviness of life are all great tools that can bring us to a deeper, more humble joy, and the peace that comes with gratitude.
