A few months ago, Ru's Kiki and Pops (grandparents) came to Seattle and stayed with Rufus while David and I took our first trip away from him together. I was SO scared. My anxiety was sky high, imagining every possible worst case scenario. By the time I got to LA I was exhausted. And then?
I first photographed the MacDonald family in the fall. They had just moved to Seattle, WA from Atlanta, GA. Kirsten was pregnant, Kunal had accepted a new job. Adeleigh was on her way to toddlerhood. When I got the call that the time had come to meet the newest member of the family, James Everett b. 8lbs 4oz, I couldn't wait to see and hold him.
On the drive back from Leavenworth to Bellevue, we drove past a herd of buffalo, in the hazy bleak snow, and I had to see them. David pulled over and put the hazards on, and I trekked back a quarter mile with my camera to see them closer.
