Beautiful, lasting relationships and watching family's grow make my heart and my cup overflow.
've had the privilege of photographing these beautiful creatures since 2005 or 2006...wow...I'm getting old! :) hahahaa
Grace is into horses these days and does quite well in her competitions, I hear. The horse's name is "just a classy lass"(....hence this post title). Wouldn't that be fun if we could name our kds crazy phrases like that? "Just a little monkey punkin" is what I would call at least one of mine. Ahhhh, culture. It'll never happen.
I'm one lucky cookie. I've had the honor and sheer delight of photographing this family since Cooper was a just a little fella. It thrills me to help him welcome his baby brother Turner to the family.
Sweet family. Love em!
But in this case, it makes me wail! Love the colors, simplicity and downright natural beauty in this session. They rolled up with an incredible royal blue velvet chair to use...the flowers/weeds mostly swallowed it up but honestly...didn't even matter. The chair fo sho was not going to be the focus here anyway. This field may be magical, but this family brought it to life.
If you're familiar with our work, you have seen this JCrew family before. (No, they aren't really JCrew models, but I think they should be.) They have just acquired some dreamy property and this is their shale beach. Yes! A beach in East TN! It's gorgeous. What a perfect place for their punkins to grow up. Indian painting with those shale rocks, boating, throwing and let's not forget..SKIPPING rocks! Oh my. The image below with this daddy and his boy skipping rocks makes my heart do some skipping. Beauty on the inside and out right here. I treasure this family.
1. I love this family because they are outrageously laid back and totally value natural little moments in life that just happen.
2. I love these kids because they are hilarious and they love one another.
3. The fleeting moments in this session are almost enough to send me right over the edge...could you just die looking at that precious baby girl and her daddy?!
4. The shot of the 3 kids standing side by side by side looking in the camera makes me smile so big, because I have two older brothers that towered over me like that when I was a little girl, too. It makes me think of a measuring stick...not an actual measuring stick, of course. But the way you can see their little stair steps is kind of a measuring visual. I dig it.
