Yes, this family is gorgeous and made me cry at the shoot. They are beautiful on the inside AND out. Quick and super funny story (that I only wish would transfer in type as funny as it is in person) :: when they came in to order their images, the brought their youngest daughter with them. She's from China and they have only had her in their family for a little while. 
She wanted a snack and mom says, "say please"...so she responded, "piiiip?" Sweetest look on her face and most precious voice, sounded nothing like please but was the best word I've ever heard a child say. 

I love that I was able to encounter this family and hear their little punkin in her first stages of learning how to communicate with English words. What a sweet little blessing. :)

The mommy of this precious child is a photographer in Knoxville. She has never allowed anyone to professionally photograph her daughter (obviously because she is mucho capable). She happened to see a life, actually on my blog one day, then we found "the field" and decided to do impromptu mini sessions within a few days later...so she said, why not? 

Can I tell you how glad I am that she did!?!!!! My life may have not had the same amounts of sweetness in it had I not met her little girl. She's my new pal. What a beautiful, giggly, precious little soul this child is. I love her to bits!

LOVE these so much!! You made her feel so special and I truly enjoyed watching you work. You brought out the giggles in her immediately and that is nothing short of amazing. Thank you for capturing her soul in these images. We love them.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have caught my excitement about this incredible field Mrs.Jenny found for us to photograph in (she's pretty spectacular like that). The field alone is just splendid, but put a couple of gorgeous ladies in it and WOW! Well, you can be the judge. 

You can see more of this little beauty ::

lil' kids | June 22, 2011
(((warning...I'm not a writer...I'm a dreamer))) 

I love moments when our kids struggle with the decision to be totally independent vs. needing to be held or touched continually. I watched way too many cartoons as a kid (ahem...and maybe even as an adult...). When I see these images, I see the picture in my mind of the momma birdie who is scooching (yeah, I said scooching) her baby birds toward the edge of the nest to let them fly, but there's still an uncertainty that they can really do it on their own, so they retract. Then what? Then of course, momma bird is right there to cuddle them up and give reassurance that it truly will be okay. 

That's how it happened in the cartoons I watched anyway. I'm a sucker for symbolism. 

note : the image where he's walking through the field with his arms up....sigh....I love what is happening in this image...."hold me, mommy...get me". Blissful, fleeting mushiness.

I've had the privilege of photographing this family's journey for the last several years. Their youngest son was just a baby when we first met. I say this all this all the time, but it never gets old to me....watching kids grow and documenting their journey through childhood is one of the most fulfilling, meaningful aspects of my life. It is such a huge part of things I'm most grateful for. Another aspect of that gratitude is the parents that trust me to do it. Gigantically blessed.
