The most recent affirmation of the above statement came in the form of an appreciative note from Michael after the awesome Reveal of his beautiful newborn baby girl’s photos. We don’t always get to hear from dads, so this one carries extra meaning for us. You’ll see why we just had to share it:
When we were driving back from the Reveal last week, we talked about how emotional we both felt watching the slideshow you prepared. I found this surprising–we’re with Madeleine everyday, taking and sharing our own photos, and enjoying our time with her. Why should watching a slideshow of your shots, which after all we watched you take, make us feel all choked up?
It’s amazing how quickly life with Maddie has become routine, in a way. You adapt surprisingly quickly, and the disruptive becomes an accepted and anticipated part of your day (as if on cue, Maddie just started crying). I think your photography captured the magic of life with Madeleine. In seeing her and our new family through your eyes, we were reminded of just how incredible this all is. I think as you’re living it, you spend less time actually thinking about that. Having your art in our home will help keep us focused on the magic everyday…especially on those days when she seems less angel and more crying-screaming-smelly-Tasmanian-devil! (Such days are increasingly common.)
Anyway, big BIG thanks to you both! Can’t wait for another look at the pictures!
More with Grace + Mike.
