This is a special one folks!
I’m ridiculousy excited to share this family session with you all! Please make sure you have time to dedicate to this blog post beyond just that quick scroll so many of us do when we look at blogs (GUILTY!) So if you don’t have time, come back later so you can really soak this sweet family in.
On the left, Megan’s view. On the right, mine. I couldn’t love these two images more.
AHHHH!!!! FAAAAVORIIIIITE!!!! I mean LOOOOOK at all of these genuine and amazing smiles! If you look up “joy” in the dictionary, this photo appears. Okay I’m lying… but it SHOULD appear!
Meet Begby, Addie has had him in her life for 15 years so OF COURSE he had to be part of the session! Duhhhh…
Ohhhh how I love this one! I think sweet Samara looks JUST like her momma.. But in this one, I see daddy. 🙂
What I love most about family sessions that happen at home is that I just captured a view of your real life… your “every day.” This image on the left, through the lenses of your 30 year goggles will take you straight back to a different decade as though it happened yesterday.
That’s why you should hire a photographer who makes you comfortable and confident enough to show them your true self… the you that you are when no one else is looking. That’s what I pride myself most on; making this dreadful “getting your photo taken” thing easy… making you relax… making it fun… ensuring that everyone is comfortable enough to show me their “living room self.”
Right after Samara ate, we had an outfit change and headed into a closeby area with a local shopping center and some nice greenery. 🙂 Samara was soooo tired but she rallied!
These two images below… man oh man… MAN OH MAN! Deja vu! It feels like just yesterday that I was taking nearly the exact same photo at their engagement session. The difference… five years of marriage. See it? Yeah. It’s confidence, comfort, warmth, security… that’s what five years of marriage looks like. Oh man, MARRIAGE! I love my job. Really and truly I do.
Aunt Megan makin’ baby Samara laugh. 😀
Addie had two requests: 1) a photo of her feeding Samara aaaand…2) “little people big sky” CHECK AND MARK!
Behind the scenes
See why I call her “Aunt Megan”?! Babies / kids LOOOOVE her!!!!
Neeeeeed I say mooooore?!
Addie and Dustin, thank you for being you and for well… being okay with ummm… you know… the change in my business. Thank you for still valuing me as a person, friend and photographer. I’m lucky to have met you five years ago and I’m even luckier now to have been asked to photograph your growing family. It was a true honor both times. But this time… THIS TIME… this time it was more special than I could ever put into words. Bottom line: thank you for loving me no matter what. The feeling couldn’t be more mutual. 🙂 …and nowwww I’m crying…
Much love friends!
Hey blog readers! I would love to photograph your growing family in your home. Let’s make it happen!
