here's our last session...he's getting much, much too big!!
So in love with watching families grow. This particular fam is a treasure to me. Our paths have become somewhat intertwined over the last few years and I'm so enjoying getting to know them.
He has an successful chiropractic business here in Johnson City and she does all things whole health and creative. She introduces me to yummy-good-for-me-things like Wildtree and ways to use Agave Nectar AND she does my hair, too. They're both awesomely creative and I love spending time with them creating things....like memories for their family. :)
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.
Beautiful inside and out.
Talented beyond measure.
Heart and drive.
Tender and sweet.
Fun, funny and flipping hilarious.
These people make me smile and inspire me to be more. I love getting to share life with them!
Having the blessing of documenting the growth of their family is just a HUGE bonus.
Found an image of little guy from our last session (2nd image down)...look how much he's changed! Unbelievable. The value of photography right before your very eyes.
This precious lady walked into my studio and within 15 minutes of talking with her and listening to her story, I was in tears. The most precious part of their story is how they prayed and prayed for this little girl and when they picked her up in their arms for the very first time, she said it felt like they had known each other forever.
I truly hate to only tell you that part of the story because it feels so skipped over, but wow...so beautiful how things sometimes just "fit". I love watching them "fit" together.
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.)
