Some of my very most treasured friendships in the entire world have blossomed out of this business.
When someone forwards us the privilege to photograph them, we truly want to know them. Yes, I am aware that this could be a really weird thing for those simply wanting "pictures". But what we do is more than just photography. We see things about you and your family that you may not ever get to see on your own. We want to show you what the love in your family looks like. It's precious and lovely. Fleeting moments in life and relationships...that's what we do.
So here we have the Crouch Family. The day we met started a beautiful friendship. I grabbed ahold of them and resolved to never let go. What a big, bold light all of them are in my life and have been since our very first planning session 3 years ago.
Thank you, Crouchs for trusting me with the milestones your family experiences. Love you all!
It gets me e v e r y t i m e. We can do creative, we can do big productions. We can do couches in fields, beds on beaches and even hanging from trees. We can do Urban. We can do Rustic. But the one thing we do that gets me every time...without fail....is a session at home. An everyday, playing around the house, hanging out, easy, laid back kinda session. The type of session where you think, "hmph. Yep. This is us."
It really is that simple. And lovely.
Meet my friends, the Bales. They are amazing on many levels. I wish you could taste a little slice of what is grown in the garden they are working in here...oh.my. She's a crafty little canner, among all other Proverbs 31 womanly things. Blessed to call her friend.
She sent me a picture of one of their sunflower fields and well....the rest is history.
This session was on their farm...or all over their farm I should say. :)
I could put this family on a stick and keep them forever. They're perfect in every way. I have to pinch myself every time I realize that they put their trust in me to document their crazy awesome life. Welcome to the family little buddy. Can't wait to watch you grow!!!
Their time in Kentucky has expired. It's time to move on. Unfortunately they are moving more than a few hours from me. I have cherished getting to watch both of their kids grow from their mommy's belly up to now. What fun this family is. You'll be missed!!!!
