jennifer, hamzah, and baby taya

Jennifer Hamzah Taya-19.jpg

I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer and Hamzah about two years ago when I photographed their wedding. Their special day was a fusion of cultural traditions, and it was a celebration I will never forget. Everyone wore the biggest smiles. Everyone opened up their hearts and their minds to welcoming people into the ever-expanding circle of family that surrounds Jennifer and Hamzah.

Hamzah reached out to me a couple months ago because he wanted to give Jennifer the gift of a photo session with their baby Taya. I was ecstatic to be able to reconnect with them, and baby Taya is a bright ball of light who radiates Jennifer’s smile and Hamzah’s eyes.

When I meet clients and am able to photograph such special moments in their life, I truly feel a deep connection. I’m so grateful for Jennifer and Hamzah. They have both allowed me and my cameras to witness some very special times in their lives, and it’s a gift that I can’t completely put into words.

Such a special family.
