It all started when I asked if I could exploit her daughter’s cuteness for one of my photo class projects. I needed to document different kinds of relationships, and mother-daughter was on my list. The Daman’s were a family on staff with the Navigtors, a Christian ministry at Penn State, and it just so happened that they had an adorable one-year old named Olivia who was in need of some birthday pictures.
I had no idea what I was doing. I’d never photographed babies before and was convinced that she’d be terrified of my camera and cry the whole time I was there. Thankfully, Olivia is not only one of the cutest little girls around, she’s also one of the most photogenic! When Damans had their second child, Isaac, this spring, I knew he’d be just as adorable. (Caroline and Nate, you two make some darn cute babies!) So when Caroline asked if we could get together for a shoot one last time before we both left State College, I couldn’t resist. Not only are they growing their family this year with Isaac, but they’re also making the move back home to Massachusetts to be a part of the ministry as Navs Staff there! Caroline and Nate, it’s been amazing to get to know you and your beautiful family over the past few years. I wish you guys the best and I can’t wait to hear about the big things that you’ll do for God in Massachusetts! Enjoy some shots of our afternoon at Penn State’s arboretum!
