An Heirloom

I had the chance to dust off my camera after quarantine and photograph this lovely family. The dress the little girl is wearing is a family heirloom. It was made by her great-great grandmother for her great grandmother. Each little girl in the family has been photograph in this dress and the photos are displayed beautifully in her great grandma’s house. What a fantastic tradition and an honor to have my photo hung to continue the gallery.

Special Lady

Donnie is very special lady! She captured my heart as a friend from the word hello. It’s a rare treat when you find a kindred spirit and your time with that person is always filling. It was my joy and pleasure to capture this large, amazing family of hers. It was windy and we had kids that were willing to give just so much time so we made quick work of it. I am so glad she has some images of what God has blessed her with for years to come.

Perfect Fall Day

We had a perfect fall day for this extended family session. I always enjoy getting to meet an extended family. I am usually connected to one part of the family but it’s a pleasure to meet the rest of the crew. It’s fun to see Grandparents love on their grand babies. To see cousin giggle and enjoy the time together. There is something special about watching a family catch up, interact and love each other. This perfect fall day brought exactly that. What fun it was to photograph this family.

Easy Going

Olivia was so easy going and fun to work with. I had to give her little direction and she was game for trying anything. We postponed her original session and I am so glad we did. We ended up with a gorgeous day to photograph a sweet, beautiful girl.

6 months already?

When Ava’s mommy asked about 6 month session all I could think is 6 months already? I only need to photograph a newborn then her 6 months session to be reminded time is like sand slipping through our fingers. I adore this stage. When they wobble sitting up, find their feet and are full of drool. Ava’s eyes are nothing less then captivating! I always adore a curtly hair girl as well. Ave is just adorable and I am excited about the images we captured even if I don’t believe she could be this old already!

Well Kept Secret

This session has been months in the making. However it was a surprise gift for Christmas to Sharon and John. It was so hard knowing the sweet gift they were being given and not say a word about it when I would see them. However we pulled it off! This family is so easy to love! They are full of grace, laughs and caring spirits. It was fun to watch the interaction of only an extended family provides. It was such a privilege to capture this family and give them photographs to cherish.

Transition

This family is full of transitions. They just moved (which we get the privilege of having them as neighbors) They are also expecting a baby boy soon.   Almost big sister Atley is full of joy, and life. She was a so fun to photograph. She kept telling her parents to say cheese and would get on them when they did not. She had me cracking up. She was full of wonder with the rocks and trains. She is at such a great age for exploring.  It was a a joy to photograph this sweet family as they capture the moments before becoming a family of 4.

 

A New Union

This session was so fun.  It was to celebrate an engagement and the new union of this family from the engagement. I loved seeing how the kids already love Trey so much.  I also enjoyed capturing Kytrell and Trey as the newness of the engagement brings giggles, sparks and expression of love. What a precious family to get in front of my camera.

 

A remarkable lady, and a sweet family

I first became friends with Diane along the sidelines of soccer. Even though we no longer enjoy those sidelines chats we have managed to remain in touch. I always look forward to a coffee with Diane. I love to hear her passion for her kids and the ways she teaches and embraces what inspires them. I enjoy hearing how she loves and supports Dan and champions their family business. She is pretty remarkable lady. We have talked about doing a session for many years and I am so glad it worked out this fall. It was fun getting to chat with the kids and capture this sweet family.

A fun adventure

Elle’s session was one full of fun adventure. Which may have included a bit of hiking. I loved that she had ideas and thoughts but was also interested in direction and trying different things. It was super hard to narrow these photos down for a sneak peek. This girl is stunning and does not take a bad photo.
