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!!!!)

...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!

Once in awhile, a family comes along that I feel like I connect with on a different level. I can't really explain it, but I definitely "feel" it. It's so comfortable being around them and watching them love one another. Love is so fun to watch! :) 

As their family tree grows, every time I see them, it's almost as if I can SEE their roots are getting deeper and their relationships maturing. So neat. Okay, yes I may be mushy...but THIS is what it's ALL about! I love this stuff...and I love this family. (and I hope I look half as cool as this g'ma when I'm a g'ma.)

I so love this first picture. The girl sitting at the piano is the oldest daughter of the family. She's a senior this year and besides being very talented at playing piano, she is also the artist of the picture that is hanging right in front of her. I love it for so many different reasons...

I also love very much that her younger sister is soooo good with these little deercows. Yes, there's a more official name for them, but to me, they are cows that happen to freakishly resemble deer. She stuck her whole hand in one of their mouths! I freaked out...she giggled. Funny stuff. Guess you had to be there. 

Anyhoo! The girls love to read together, so my very fave pic of the whole session is the shot of them reading their books together. I really loved them all. This family is just amazingly sweet, so precious. I'm blessed to have crossed paths with them.

What a beautiful backyard session with this sweet family! I've so loved getting to know them through our time together. Such genuinely real and precious people. 

I truly love hearing people talk about their families. This mom and dad both came to our planning session and even though their kids are teens, they still light up when they talk about them. I find that extremely refreshing and a very desirable quality. I want to light up with joy when I talk about our kids when they are teenagers. A beautiful example of a "wholesome family"....and they're cute, too!
