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!!

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!!

I had stopped at the waterfall on my way to their session to make sure it was safe. You might remember that the beginning of July was SO VERY RAINY!!

It was PERFECT!!

They are an absolute DREAM to work with!?

I still can’t believe that this waterfall is in Waverly and not Hawaii!!

GORGEOUS!!

We had their session on a Thursday in mid-July – and Melissa – who wasn’t due until mid-August – delivered their baby girl on MONDAY. MONDAY!!

I was SO happy we were able to schedule their session and make it happen before their daughter made her arrival!

Melissa & Spencer – THANK YOU SO MUCH for getting IN the water and being one of my FAVORITE couples to photograph!!

I can’t WAIT to meet that baby girl of yours!!

I’ve been taking photos of Melissa for well over TEN years!!

I was SO excited when I found out she was pregnant! I immediately began thinking of what their maternity photos would look like!

PERFECTION!!!

SERIOUSLY!! They are an absolute DREAM to photograph!

Working with Melissa and Spencer always fuels my creativity!!

We had a hard time finding a date that worked for both of us – but thankfully we found a Thursday evening that worked for both of us!

I knew I could count on Melissa & Spencer to say YES about my next request!!

WATERFALL MATERNITY PHOTOS!!

ISN’T SHE GORGEOUS!?

I’ve got more to show you – so stay tuned!!

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!

I took photos of Kristen’s kiddos with their cousins in the creek at the beginning of the summer – and was SO excited when they talked about scheduling family photos TOGETHER!!

You might remember that the beginning of July was VERY RAINY – so much so – we had to reschedule this session THREE times!!

Those will forever be my favorite moments!!

OH MY HEART!!

I LOVE those shots!!

I’ve got lots more to show you from their session!

 

This little guy needed some momma snuggles before attempting a BIG family photo!
