Last weekend, I had the opportunity to spend some time with the Sinicropi Family. I came over to document their life as it is right now since they will soon be a family of four.
I arrived shortly after Marco woke up from his nap and it wasn’t long before his personality started to shine through. Teresa had set up a craft project for him to do while I was there and I think he was more interested in the markers than the actual project itself—he was being so silly!
Eventually, we found ourselves “rocking out” with his dad, Mark, in their upstairs music room while Teresa cooked dinner. As the night progressed, we just hung out and let Marco do what he does best: be a funny, sweet, and busy almost two-year-old. I really enjoyed the opportunity to get to know him. Throughout the night he was very aware of my presence and made sure I was included in every activity. He’s going to be one amazing big brother.
I loved watching Mark and Teresa in action—they are amazing parents doing an incredible job raising Marco. You could feel their love not just for Marco, but also each other, just by being in their presence.
One thing I really love about documentary sessions is the ability to see parents in action. You are able to witness them embrace every moment with unyielding love, patience, and admiration for their children—it’s incredible to experience. I feel so blessed to be able to show parents, like Mark and Teresa, what their love and life looks like at this moment in time so they (and their children) can remember it always.
Thank you, Teresa and Mark, for allowing me into your home to get to know your family. I really enjoyed documenting your life as a current family of three and I can’t wait to photograph you becoming a family of four.
