There are few things that I was really insistent on after having Benoît, but one thing that I really wanted was a professional photographer to come take pictures of the family together. I knew that if we didn't we would only have pictures with either Dave or I in them, but not with both of us. They would also probably all be taken with our phones, which is less than ideal. We did some initial looking around and found that baby photographers were either really expensive (!) or were taking pictures that just weren't our style (picture babies in costumes tucked into baskets).
We reached out to Lev Kuperman, our wedding photographer. He knew exactly what we wanted and took beautiful photos at a really reasonable price. I was super excited to see that he posted some of our pictures on his blog. I can't say enough about Lev. He has now shared two very special moments with us, and it just felt right having him come into our home when Ben was so young.
