The Compstons Read a Book :: Haven Session, Denver Family Documentary Photography

Winter. That time when all is quiet, literally and figuratively. While nature sleeps, those of us with kiddos find ourselves locked indoors either because of the snow or illness. An opportunity however to pick up a good book, or two, or three. 

If you ask me, there are few things lovelier than reading and especially reading as a family. And I’m always pleased to encounter such lovely people, like the Compston people, who feel the same. Of their whole Haven session, these images were my favorite. Intimacy and familiarity were created on this couch, in the simple act of picking up that picture book which was so well loved and memorized long ago. I’m grateful to have captured such a sacred and life-giving moment in the busy day of a busy family.
