I met this family a couple of years ago through my husband's company Christmas party. One of the daughters and the dad actually went to Rwanda with Hope 2.2.1. last summer, so, I've had the pleasure and good fortune to get to know them very well over the past year. They are not only tall in stature, but super big in faith and family. We were talking once about different business and leadership books and I will never forget what Dave said...he said, "Yeah, I should probably read those books, but really I just learn what I need from the bible." What a strong statement that was to me! Such a beautiful example.

There was a moment during their ordering session when their son made me cry like a baby...(I know, shocking)...he said, during the photo shoot, when I was taking pictures of his sisters, he couldn't help think of how beautiful they were. Are you serious? I love this family. I want my son to talk that way about my daughter when they grow up! Teach me Dave and Jennifer! Teach me! You're family is incredible and I'm blessed to have been able to document this time in your journey. Thank you for sharing your sweetness with me. 


ps...please don't hate me for posting my favorite shot...second to last. ;)

Kevin and I met this family when we started attending our church (Harvest Community) back in 2002. They are just beautiful people. So laid back, yet so driven for more out of life. Very inspiring to be around. We've been through so much growth together in the past 9 years, I'm excited to see what the next 9 hold for us! 

You can see these images in real life if you visit the Johnson City Keller Williams location. She has a beautiful wall grouping of these images displayed there...see before and after below!

Another lil' military fella came in town for the holidays! 

This family rocks. They're smart, funny, they truly act as though they like each other AAAAND they can brave some serious cold weather to have family pictures made! I am so, so glad that I don't have to look cute and be photographed while freezing. I promise I would pale in comparison to the sheer talent that this group had in accomplishing that task. 


Then, this is how we used the images from this session to breathe life on their walls at home.
(I can either apologize for the quality or not show you....taken from across the room on my cell phone, then cropped. ick..you still get the jist...LOVE IT!!!!)

all in the family , big kids | February 25, 2011
...and so did I. Oh my goodness. Talk about emotions flowing when a soldier comes home for Christmas for the first time in 3 years..... wow. Powerful stuff. 

I'm overwhelmed with gratitude that they allowed me to photograph their family together for this beautiful reunion. My favorite part of their actual photography session was watching the mom look at her son....every time...pure joy and pride. It was beautiful to watch.  

Thank you sweet soldier for fighting for our country. You're a hero!

last year's session if you enjoy watching kids grow up...


This incredible-down-to-earth-country-and-city-style family has been with me since their wedding. They feel like home to me...when we talk, I feel a sense of family. A little weird, a lot cool that 5 years of simply "taking someone's pictures" can build such a beautiful relationship. So grateful that I get to do what I do with the people that I get to do it with. Makes my heart happy. 

And Happy Ava! Look at this princess! Do you think she enjoyed the cupcake at all? 
We spent her birthday morning downtown and they even gave her birthday gift to her during our session. Talk about someone feeling special? I can't believe I got to be there for all of that! So wonderful. So awesome. So love this family. The last picture of them is perfect.
