THE shots she was REALLY looking forward to …

To be honest – I REALLY look forward to these shots too!!

ON TOP OF THE WORLD!!

Their oldest son asked me if I could grab some shots of him doing back flips – um … YES!!

PERFECTION!!

I had a blanket to put down – but asked if they would lie in the grass instead!!

Lori conquered her fear of snakes to do it!

I thought we were DONE after this – but then I got ONE more idea -

SWOON!!!

GORGEOUS!!

Mike & Lori – thank you SO MUCH for making the drive to come see THE hill – God gave us a BEAUTIFUL evening!!

I remember Mike & Lori from college – or at least I think I do!? I don’t know how else I would have know about them!

She messaged me in the fall talking about scheduling pictures for the spring – BUT – they live two hours from Mansfield – and she REALLY REALLY loved the family sessions at sunset on THE hill!

I messaged her the morning of our session to let her know that the grass was TOO long on THE hill – but I figured out some spots that would work. She REALLY wanted THE hill – so we agreed to reschedule till the hay was cut! I drove by the property trying to figure out something to make it work and IT WAS CUT! I messaged Lori to let her know we could still be on if they wanted!

It was a go!!

BUT – the edges were still PERFECT for our session!

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

SWOON!!!

When I showed her those shots on the back of my camera – she said – THIS is why we drove two hours for pictures!!

AREN’T THEY A GORGEOUS FAMILY!?

Stay tuned …

Megan and I met because I needed a backup photographer for a wedding when I was pregnant with Fitzy!

Turns out – I didn’t need someone else to do the wedding – but Megan and I became friends.

I have a list of women that want to have a baby – grow their family – and Megan asked if I would pray for her.

Fitzy and her oldest are about a year apart and we’ve been good friends ever since!

That’s her oldest – on the right! He used to call Fitzy – Ipsy. And we ALL miss it!!

AND NOW – Megan has two little boys and two little girls – BE STILL MY HEART!!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!!

MEGAN & HER DAUGHTERS!!

LOOK AT THOSE SMILES!!

SO MANY SMILES!!

FISH FACES!!

So many hands to hold her. SO MUCH LOVE!!

SWEET BABY! You are so very very loved!

I met Carrie last year through our local MOPS group and took their photos last spring – but it was time for some NEW photos – like I said – you really should be getting professional family photos every year!!

I love how kids interpret directions! I asked her to give her cheek a squeeze – her mom’s cheek! BUT – she did exactly what I told her!

Nope – still not what I meant – but it IS what I said!

SISTERS!!

CHEESE!!!

DARLING!!

I ADORE those last two shots!!

Stay tuned for the rest of their session!
