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?!?!

6 Month Portraits – Benjamin

Ok so I just love Little Ones sessions! It’s tooooo fun to get to watch these sweet littles grow up, and it’s even better when I get to see their siblings too!

I got to see Benjamin & his big brothers for his 6 month portraits, and this kiddo is just too darn cute. He’s all kinds of expressive, and it was so much fun to watch him watching his brothers & trying to keep up! He’s the first of the three boys to be sitting on his own at 6 months, and I’m pretty sure it’s cause he wants to be able to play with his brothers!!

Love when the same props are used throughout a Little Ones series, and this sweet blanket is extra special as it was gifted to Benjamin by a family member.
