I’ve been looking forward to meeting Chloe and her family since they won the giveaway for a mini session on our Instagram. Chloe used to be a photographer herself but is now the owner of a darling shop that sells organic+sustainable diaper bags and clothing called Baby Bear Outfitters and a blog that highlights. You should go check them out!
They have one little girl, Emma, who is a bright and spunky one year old just learning to walk. She seriously has the biggest blue eyes and a curious personality. I had a great time getting to know this sweet family and chasing Emma around the studio. She definitely kept us on our toes! But I think that’s just her normal pace because her mom and dad love to adventure too and be in the outdoors.
I’m pretty sure, though, that their greatest adventure is each other. Recently, their family has been dealing with Nate’s cancer treatment and I’m so impressed with how happy and easy going they are, even with the many challenges they are facing. They have that fierce love for each other that I’m sure help them get through the hard days. I hate seeing good families like the Martins go through these kinds of things. But I’m grateful for photography that can help them remember the good days. Here are some of my favorites from their session.
