Marcy is a in the trenches kind of friend. She sees me at my worst and hopefully at my best. She knows the pains and the joys. She gets to remind me often to not believe lies that easily slip into my head. We have someone how have managed despite living apart for over 3 years to keep sharing daily life together. I love having the excuse at least once a year to photograph her beautiful family. I love how each of her girls have their own beauty and personality. My favorite photo of the session was the last one posted. It shows, her follow the directions oldest, her easy going daydreamer second, and her take off and conquer third. I am privileged to watch these girls grow up in front of my lens and to have such a great friend in their mom.
These girls have an obvious grace when they twirl, leap and arabeque. Their natural dance abilities seems to be a simple out pouring of their grace they have reflected from the inside. These girls were the sweetest girls. This the first time I got to spend time with them and I simply enjoyed it. Each one demonstrating a stunning outer beauty that match a inner beauty. It was such a joy to capture this family and their favorite hobby and all the grace that came with it.
This family has a very special place in my heart. These girls are my kids best buddies, still not certain by choice or force but best buddies they are. Their mommy is one of my dearest friends. I love getting to capture them in my camera. This year was no different. I love getting those moments to interact with them drawing out bits of what makes them, them. I love being reminded how well God did on creating the beauty of each one. How special He made this family He designed. What a blessing and privilege it is to not only capture them but have them as part of my famil
You can easily see it. The expression of love this family gives. You might catch a glimpse of it when the two girls are interacting. You can hear it when their daddy tells them countless times in different ways how beautiful his girls are. You can see it in the joy and interaction that is a natural rhythm to this family. This family has a way of making expressing love seem effortless and it was my honor to capture them.
I kidnapped my friends two oldest daughters so she could have some moments loving on her newborn. It was great fun for my two kids to have their friends here that they truly miss. Of course I had to take the opportunity while I had them to do a photography session. I feel it counts toward their 5 year and 3 year session that was rushed a few weeks back. I love capturing these two girls. Both have so many expressions and many precious things that make up who God created them to be. It’s a wonder to watch how unique and fearfully made both are.
Jeanella heard about me through a mutual friend. It happens to be a mutual friend we both adore. This made for a fast and easy connection. Through out our session I got to hear some of this family’s inspiring story. I also was able to photograph two adorable girls. I was a little nervous about a 8 month old, as you never know how they will do. Miss Savannah was a rock star. She smiled on cue almost every time. She also decided to discover her tongue just in time for our session. Valerie also did awesome. I love this age they are full of life and loves and are willing to share with me what those are. One of her very evident love was for her baby sister. She adores her and the way Savannah lights ups when Valerie appears makes it known the feelings are mutual. As I walked about from our session I kept thinking what a sweet, sweet family and how blessed I was to be able to capture their family that day.
Raleigh is smitten with her new baby sister Reaghan. She was full of ideas she would love to do with her sister. Even though Reaghan has a few years to grow before she can also enjoy all her big sister has planned, I know eventually she will be following her around as younger siblings often do. Reaghan was alert for most of our session, and even flashed her sweet dimple filled smile. These girls were a delight to photograph, it’s easy to see why their mommy is smitten with both of them. They are darling!
When you are faced with multiple obstacles during a session what do you do? Keep going. That is how this session went. It is possible that we should have quit much sooner then we did. I am so glad we didn’t as I was able to capture some of the cutest photographs of these sweet girls. I am so glad their mom trusted me when I said let’s keep trying. I do know this session will go as “remember when” kind of moments but I appreciate that will be followed by a laugh. Life is so often memories in the making, and photography is catching those moments, so honored to catch those memories in Lilly and Layla’s life.
I had a great session full of adventure with Lilly and Layla. We went to the Union Station which was full of awesome photography opportunities. We had several clothing changes that added to the fun of different styles and different looks. Their mom gave me permission to do whatever I wanted to do which allowed me to push myself creatively and do things I might not otherwise do. The girls were great sports and we were able to capture some timeless photographs.
This family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby #3. They have chosen not to find out what they are having (something I am more then partial to). The girls had such a great time telling me what names the baby should have. They definitely love this little one already. It was a lot of fun to capture this family of four as they anticipate becoming five. I am also excited to get to photograph him or her as a newborn. It won’t be long!
