Crazy. I love watching kids grow. Especially when they're fun and sweet like this crew! The youngest in the pics was miserable while we were shooting...her allergies were just awful and I never heard her complain one time. Amazing. Behind every great set of kids, you'll find great parents...holds true in this family, too!

Getting to know families through photoshoots, seems incredibly ridiculous to say out loud, but for real...it does happen. I love having the opportunity to get to meet wonderful people. Grateful they are trusting us to document their precious punkins! Such an honor.

The older I get, the more I realize things only last for a little while. Profound, I know. 
Towns, homes, jobs, people, relationships, the original version of any product under the sun.
I'm just saying, wonderful things only last for a season in life.

This family is only here for a little while. Johnson City is just one stop on their long journey of moving from place to place with their job. ((It seems like I meet more and more people that are so incredibly genuine and wonderful that are just "passing through". Not sure what that's all about, but going to just enjoy the time I get to have with them.)) I love the fact that she selected their home to be photographed at. There are so many places in East TN that would have worked, too...but knowing they'll be moving on soon makes it extra special to remember daily life in the back yard and on the dock.

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.

Okay, so she's not "wearing" the records, though that may be a super fun shoot? Anyway, this gorgeous senior is so unique and special, we wanted to incorporate some things in her session that spoke to that. So here's what we came up with....
I love them! Love the images. Love the girl. Love her mom. So happy to get to work with such cool people!!!

What a treat to meet this little girl!

I have to be honest....I was a little nervous to meet her at first. She has cerebral palsy and not having experience being around children with this condition, I wasn't sure what to expect. But now I know. I know to expect to smile so big it makes my face hurt (like the entire time that she's in my presence). I know to expect to leave with a heart so full it threatens bursting right out of my chest. 

I smiled for days after I met her. 

She made me laugh so hard just by telling me "boo", then asking me to tell her boo. I went straight home and told my husband and kids about her and enjoyed thinking about what blessing she is for the entire weekend. 

Sometimes life's most simple pleasures just fall right into our paths when we're least expecting them.
