Family Portraits – The Clarks

Normally I don’t get to see my Little Ones package clients again after their newborn portraits until they are 3 or 6 months old, but we moved up Addie’s shoot a month so that we could get some good family portraits of these three, and it was fun to get to see them again so quickly!

We met in the middle at Discovery Green, and despite the gorgeous weather & busy park, we were able to get some great shots of just these three that felt like we were the only ones there! Addie just keeps getting cuter & cuter – I can’t wait to do the next few shoots in her series!

Y’all know I love getting photos of just the parents during family shoots… it’s so so so important to remember that you’re a couple & that’s how all of this started, and that it’s important to come back to that even in the midst of parenting chaos!

Amanda, Steve & Addie – thank you so much for making the drive into downtown & for trusting me to photograph Addie as she grows in her first year of life! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and I’ll see you next year!

Children Portraits – Hadyn & Cade

I cannot believe how grown up these two have gotten!! It’s crazy to think that I have been photographing Hadyn & Cade for yearssssss now. These two will always have a place in my heart, and I’m so thankful that not only do I get to photograph them, but that their family has become our family.

These two have personality for days, and can fight like siblings do, but there are so many moments where I watch them playing together and it makes me hope that my girls play together like that too. And it reminds me so much of my brother & I (but maybe a little nicer). And I hope and pray that these two find one of their greatest friends in each other as they grow up. And that they can still be crazy silly together & then switch right into sincere love for one another.

This reaction may or may not have been caused by something I said… I hope they never get too old for that trick, cause their laughing faces are my favorite!

Hadyn & Cade, thanks for once again letting me take your photos & for letting me make y’all show that you do actually like each other. Also? Thanks for sharing those donuts & kolaches with me after the shoot!!

Family Portraits – Koltonskis

Photographing people and families through the years is one of the things I value the most about being  photographer. Getting to see the stages in their lives and provide them with images that take them back to those days, those feelings, is an incredible responsibility and is such an honor for me.

Knowing that a young woman will be able to look back to see that she’s been surrounded by love from day one is a powerful thing. Knowing that a little boy will be able to look back to see that his big sister really does love him (and has all along) even if they fight like cats and dogs is a powerful thing. Knowing that a mother will be able to look back and feel the light, sweet weight of her baby in her arms as her kids move off to college is a powerful thing.

And this family? It’s such a powerful thing for me to get to photograph them each time. Whitney & Chris prayed and fought so hard for these babies, and the miracle of modern medicine & the miracle of God’s provision astound me every time I see them. These sweet beautiful babies that made them parents, and seeing the way they love their children just warms my heart! From hunching over to walk a mini tractor through a dewey field to snuggles and calming whispers, it is so clear that they would do anything for Lila & Caleb.

And speaking of that mini tractor… is this not just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?!?!

Is Lila not just the sweetest?!?!!? I wish y’all could hear her little voice. So so cute (almost as cute as those little pigtails)!!
