A week ago I really thought that Spring was just around the corner .. and then snow and cold all over again!  So today I’m channeling the warmth and sharing photos from a session I did on a hot summer evening.  One that I have been meaning to share for way too long.

Perhaps you too are dreaming of the warmer days ahead .. Perhaps you too want to take me out on your boat for some laughs, a beautiful sunset, heck maybe a beer or too.  To which I say let’s talk!!

I’ve noticed that I get so many inquiries for newborns and first birthdays and toddler years etc .. but hardly any for families with older children. I know it’s harder to schedule time when they have their own sports, jobs and school commitments but you are really going to want to remember this stage too. So hurry up and set something up now while they still want to hang out with you!!

When my daughter Rosie got to be 18 months or so I began reaching out for a little social network of toddlers and like-minded moms and dads to spend some time with during those looonng days of taking care of a child full-time.   And our little pocket of Baltimore (Hampden) did not disappoint!   It did not take long to really connect with a solid group of parents of crazy city toddlers.

And there seemed to be one bright center to this social circle.  Stay at home dad extraordinaire, Wouter!  That guy was everywhere and everyone knew who he was.  He started community playgroups, he led family friendly yoga, he was at every toddler event within walking distance and he had more energy than any parent I had met.  He and his family had only moved to Baltimore from the Netherlands a year prior but he somehow seemed to connect so many people in our community.  It was always refreshing to get to see Wolter, his wife Tjitske and his girls Nyne & Lyse.

Just last month this incredible family, that I am honored to call friends, suddenly moved back to the Netherlands.  (Hampden is still recovering from the shock!)  And days before they moved I gave them the only going away present that I could give .. to follow them around their beloved neighborhood and document one of their final afternoons in a city they had made their home.  This is the Bokhove family exactly as I will remember them.  Riding their bikes, saying hi to LITERALLY everyone on the street, playing at the park by their house and basically just being full of life everywhere they went.
