Ohhhhh, if I could only tell you some of the things I overheard at this shoot. Woo! These people are f u n n y! And not afraid to say anything. :) They had me rolling. We went up to the dam and got some super fun images, then we went back to their farm and got in the pin with the cows. Yes. They came at us thinking we would feed them, maybe? Don't know but I won't lie. It freaked me out....big time (see last shot). I ended up going on the outside of the gate and left the family in with all the critters. They're brave. I was proud of em. It didn't even bother me that they laughed at me because I'm such a big chicken.
What a precious family. They are one of those families that you look at and think...how can one family always be that happy? But! I've worked with them for years now and know lots of people who know them and they all say the same thing. They are just always happy. How infectious to be around someone like that! It's beautiful.
Their last session was when they were expecting their sweet little boy a little over a year ago. You can see it here... love them!
Just can't get tired of brothers and sisters being brothers and sisters.
It's been years since I've had an opportunity to photograph this family. They were just as fun
for this session as they were for our last. I love being able to grow with families and documenting their kids growing up. Just one of the many very cool aspects of what we do! :)
yep....Two of them actually!
Meet my friend, Allison. We went to high school and graduated together. She's just as sweet and beautiful now as she was in school. Not to mention she's multiplied...she and her husband have made some gorgeous twin boys (whom she endearingly refers to as her "cubs or cubbies" <---so stinkin' cute).
We went with her parents to a local farm and walked away with images that I would have killed to have when my twins were her boy's age. I love this session. Sweet, sweet, sweetness!
The greatest thing I could tell you about Allison (besides the fact that she's a smokin' hot mama) is that her attitude is completely contagious! She has THE BEST attitude about being a mom, being hundreds of miles away from all of her family with 2 new babies and everything else under the sun.........babies getting bigger, changing stages, all the things in life that stress most people out and send them into a tizzy, she handles with beautiful finesse and let's it all just run off her back. So inspiring to be around. Grateful to have the opportunity to document her precious family and reconnect with her after all these years.
I promise you....swear it...you are only seeing the love here that I saw first hand.
I couldn't make this stuff happen in front of a camera if I tried. The connection in this family is SO strong and beautiful to watch, it made the images turn out swimmingly well, in my opinion.
I love watching love...especially when it includes genuine people and dread locks.
