the magic in being together. // Ahmann Family Session

    December 7, 2017

    I’m pretty sure anyone who knows the Ahmann family, loves them. One of my most favorite parts of this session was getting a little peek into their family dynamic. I know Emily as a mother to baby JJ, I oftentimes see her with little Savannah or the big kids. But seeing everyone — mom, dad, all FOUR kids together at once?

    That, my friends, is nothing short of magical. I can say that with authority now because I witnessed it.

    There is something fantastic that happens when everyone is together, everyone has someone. These sweet kids couldn’t get enough of their parents, or really of each other. They played, twirled, giggled, tickled, held hands and kept each other together. It’s as if they know this family time is sacred. They know it is special when they are together.

    And really, that’s a pretty amazing place to be.

    Not sure how I got lucky enough to make such amazing friends here in Singapore, but Emily is one of those people who makes you realize you didn’t even know what you were missing. She has embraced her role as a mother with such a passion and responsibility that I am constantly reminded of my own role as a mother, which is so special.
    I have vivid memories of my own mother curling, brushing and feathering my bangs (HA!) as a kid. I love catching a little bit of those own moments with moms and their daughters.
