I've known this beautiful momma for a few years now. We first met in an online mom group when she was pregnant with her oldest and I was pregnant with my youngest. It's amazing how an online group can bring people together! We have kept in touch over the years...we had a few playdates when our girls were babies...I've been to her salon a few times (she's amazing with hair!!)...and we even chat sometimes about photography (she's also a local photographer). When she contacted me to photograph her family this year, I was thrilled. As a photographer, she knows just how important it is to get in the frame with her family - it was such an honor she trusted me to do that for her.
I knew going into the session it would be a great time. And it was! We hung out in beautiful nature, picked wildflowers, played with bubbles and laughed a lot. To top it off, the girls asked to hold my hand when we were walking - I felt like I was a part of their family. It was a pretty amazing feeling. This family is truly special - and their connection is so beautiful. If you know them, I'm sure you'll agree. ♥
These two images were the last two I took that evening...and they have become my new favorites of all my family sessions. I can just feel the happiness when I look at them. This is their family, their connection, their love, their story - and it's BEAUTIFUL.
Now booking late summer + early fall outdoor family sessions! I'd love to hear about the session you are dreaming up for your own family. Contact me today and let's start planning!
