Sometimes I joke that I only have a business so I can meet new friends...like this one.
What a sweet friend, Christina is! She's wildly....WILDLY creative, has an unbelievably great business mind, she could easily show that P90X Tony a few things and have I mentioned that she is mastermind behind the always scrumptious Cootie Brown's Key Lime Pie?! I could go on and on and on about how fabulous she is, the list is longer than I have time for right at this very second.
I'm crazy blessed to get to know her and her awesome family!
Meet the Roses. An incredibly fun, beautiful, full of life, funny, intelligent, sweet enough to give you a cavity- family. They are just some of my favorite people on the planet.
I've had the joy of photographing this little girl since she was in her mommy's womb.
Here's a series of our journey together...
What a beautiful adventure their first year was! So grateful for this family and looking forward to watching them grow for a long, long time.
You may remember this family...they're quite unforgettable.
They have personality PLUS! Plus what? Plus more personality, that's what.
I literally either laugh or have permagrin from the time they walk in to the moment we part.
Their joy, sarcasm, dry humor and depth leave me wanting more every time I see them.
Oh, and did I mention their willingness to do crazy things? They let me lay their first son
down in really tall grass, wrapped in a blanket up on Roan Mtn.. This year they let me float their new baby boy down the river in a basket. They rock.
We did a two part session Maternity/Newborn. Both by water to carry the theme. I think it's pretty obvious in the images where one story stops and the other starts. Isn't it cool how our bodies, as women, change so drastically, so rapidly? I love that.
Seems like yesterday this family was flying solo with one beautiful little boy and BAM! Babies started coming hand over fist. Now complete (but I'm all for them adding a few more) is one of the sweetest families I know!
To be going in so many different directions, Lori handles life with ease and finesse. She truly inspires me. I love talking to her and listening to her "one day at a time" approach. She's filled with love that overflows to everyone around her. What a beautiful momma...inside and out. :)
