I LOVE this photo. You can see the shadows of the boys in the background. And mom is brushing her daughter’s hair quick before our shoot.

These kiddos are the same age as my own. I can’t believe I have been photographing their ENTIRE lives!!

You KNOW I love a good silhouette!!

Arica – thank you SO MUCH for the past ELEVEN YEARS of photographing you and your family!!

Isn’t she just ADORABLE!?

Stephanie – THANK YOU so much for asking me to join you in celebrating your little girl!!

Stephanie had a vision for her little girl’s FIRST birthday party!!

She wanted blue skies. White clouds. The rafters of their new home. We rescheduled because of rain and the rafters not being done.

But the day we did get was a PERFECT one!!

THAT SWEET FACE!!

I ADORE that shot – everyone clapping and celebrating their favorite little sister!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL!!

Stay tuned for the rest of her party!

I’ve loved being able to watch this brother & sister duo grow over the years!!

Remember – family pictures do NOT have to be posed. They do not have to be in matching outfits.

My FAVORITE thing to do is photograph YOU doing your FAVORITE things!!

THIS IS US

Vanessa & Cody really wanted some waterfall shots – and you know I am ALWAYS up for waterfall shots!

It was just a little chilly!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!

Vanessa – thank you SO MUCH for spending your birthday with me!!

You are STRONG & BEAUTIFUL & AMAZING. I love you dearly!!

This is my cousin’s daughter. She is about the same age that my cousin was when I went to college.

So – Vanessa is forever THIS age in my head. It’s very hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that she has a daughter that age!!

Vanessa asked if we could meet at World’s End – and as much as we love creek exploring – we haven’t been there yet!

We happened to schedule our session on Vanessa’s birthday. Her 25th birthday.

Which means that I fell in love with photographing people 25 years ago.

I was 15 and I vividly remember her being born. She changed our lives.

My sister and I spent SO much time babysitting her and toting her around.

I took photography in high school and they became my first subjects! They being Vanessa and her brother Zach – who is a year younger than her!

I’ve got more to show – including WATERFALL photos!!

I’ve been taking Angie & Tim’s family photos for 4 years!!

We missed a maternity session while this beautiful baby was still brewing – but I did get to see her in all her squishy new-baby glory!!

He is SUCH a great big brother!!

GAH!!! SHE IS SO SQUISHY!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!

I’ve got more squishy goodness to show you – TOMORROW!!

SISTERS

I LOVE that they wanted photos of their families together!!

The littlest guy was STILL not too fond of me OR this picture taking business – so we improvised!

BE STILL MY HEART!!

I WON (sort of) in the end!! Not really – but we’ll pretend I did!

THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE!!

What being a farmer’s daughter looks like! Muddy feet and pretty shoes!!

I LOVE that she was wearing fancy shoes and a pretty dress and riding in the back with the boys!!

Kristen & Gabrielle – THANK YOU SO MUCH for spending the evening with me! I had a GREAT time with you and your families!
