For Emma’s senior session we went all over Jefferson City and beyond to capture some of her favorite places and to tell her story. Her story is one of theater, music, faith and family. Emma is a sweet, unassuming, laid back kind of girl. She has a smile that is contagious. She was up to try anything. It was a blast for me to try new locations and new ideas. I am go glad I got to capture this beautiful senior.
Michaela is an excellent student. She is dedicated to her role in student council. She loves the Fourth of July. She can not pass up a swing. She is a caring sister. She loves her friends. She is assured of herself. She loves to laugh. She has high ambition. She has the respect of many. She is the pride of her parents. Not to forget, beautiful As she described her daily routine to me I was in awe of what she gets accomplished in one day. She is juggling many balls at the moment, including senior in high school. It was so much fun to try to capture her and showcase some of what she juggles so well.
Ms. Z is the sweetest little thing. I completely enjoyed capturing her. She has so much life and expression wrapped into that petite frame. I especially love the smiles she pulled out for her mommy and daddy. She loves them so and it was evident. I am pretty confident they are captivated by her as well. I fully appreciated her daddy willing to sing her favorite songs to get Ms. Z being herself. What a special family to be able to photograph.
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.
Cailyn’s mama has worked very hard to get to hold this precious baby in her arms. She was on bed rest since 25 weeks. There were countless people praying for the healthy, safe arrival of this adorable girl. As soon as she was born the announcement went out, “the princess has arrived and she is perfect!” The joy on her parents face is evident. I am once again blessed to be able to capture a beautiful newborn in all her sweetness!
Ava in my opinion is a perfect mix of her mom and dad. I love getting to hang out with her and see glimpses of both of them. A certain phrase, look, or smile just reminds me of one or the other. Don’t get me wrong there is plenty that is all Ava. She turned six this year. I have been photographing her since she was a baby. It’s hard to believe she is already that old. She is at a really fun age though. She was full of ideas of where we should and what she should do. She was full of giggles, smiles and the perfect serious look. This amazing mix of her parents is turning into a pretty incredible girl blessed I get to capture her each year.
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!
On my recent session with the Mann family I captured this photo. It just cracks me up. It is a great depiction of what a two year old thinks of kissing. I wanted to share so you can put a smile on your face today as well.
