The reason I started taking photos was to seal up memories of certain chapters of my life, which I knew I would never want to forget. I guess in a way that's what pictures are meant for. So, I never take it lightly when people want me to capture their special memories, allowing them to pause for a moment in time and live in the present.
Y'all. This family rocks! When this sweet momma emailed me about a session, mentioning they desperately wanted photos of their little one (and soon to be second little one) before they entered the crazy town of a newborn and toddler, I knew we had to make some magic happen. She warned me it would be difficult to get this little guy to look at the camera- but I think most of all in family sessions, I love the challenge of making a toddler smile and have fun in front of a camera. But for real, it wasn't difficult with this dad around. The bond and joy between these two was so real and genuine, it was almost tangible. All he had to do was open him arms and this little guy came running with a smile!
And this mom- let me tell you, she is a champ! Not only is she chasing around a toddler, while being pregnant, she also texted me a couple days before the session saying she had to stay in her ankle brace. And she shows up looking gorgeous! How do you moms do this?! Super. Woman. It's obvious she is the glue to this family of boys- just look at the way this tender little one loves her.
P Family, I had an incredible time capturing these moments of you guys. You 4 were a photographer's dream! Your love for your precious family is so evident and I am so thankful I was able to capture just a glimpse of your joy! Enjoy!
