the papp family | hartville ohio family portraits

“After all," Anne had said to Marilla once, "I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.” 
- Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery 

Almost a year and a half ago now, I held a photography workshop in my home. Three girls attended, and Rachel was one of them. She was a quiet, kind, talented, and married young woman. The other girls and I asked her so many questions about her love story, their little apartment above a sewing shop, and of course, when are those little kids coming? ;) 

When Rachel told me that she was expecting her little boy, I was so excited. (Sidenote: I love that the people who have attended my workshop are my friends, true friends.) I had the opportunity to visit the Papp family and photograph them in their home. Easton is such a precious little guy and I loved meeting him and hanging out with Austin + Rachel. 

Austin and Rachel, thank you for inviting me into your home to photograph you and your little boy. I had such a wonderful time eating delicious burgers and fries + hanging out with you on your couch. You made my first trip to Ohio absolutely wonderful! xoxo
