Guest Blogger and Photography Assistant: Ember Soleil Leddy
Krysta, Justin, and Kai moved into our neighborhood last spring, and I hit it off with them immediately. They’re such kind people. I regularly go over to babysit Kai, and they’ve always shown great interest in my life. From inviting me over to have dinner often, to throwing me a birthday party (complete with a homemade cake from Krysta), their house has begun to feel like a home to me as well.
That’s because of the warmth they show those around them.
I remember when I came over one day to watch Kai and Krysta informed me that she was pregnant with another baby. I was so excited to watch her grow, and then finally meet her. If the baby was anything like Kai, or Krysta and Justin for that matter, I knew she would be intelligent, able to make me laugh, and above all, loving. I watched Elora Soleil (who got her beautiful name when she was born on January 31st, 2022) grow for the last 9 months, and it was so wonderful to finally meet her when my mom and I did this photo shoot.
She stayed sound asleep for most of the shoot, opening her eyes and smiling at the camera every so often. She has a great family and I can’t wait to get to know her, too!
(The Colby’s have shown Ember such kindness and I was honored to get to photograph their family)
