My ultimate goal as a family photographer is to grab a shot of mom and dad and their kids in a moment. A sweet and real moment. Creating something that tugs at your heart even if you don't know the people.
Well, this shot tugs at my heart times 10, because I DO know these people-quite well. This beautiful mama has known me since I was in high school and she has been a role model to me for the past 18 years. Holy moly! I just did that math and I am shocked that it has been that long. Woah. Her goodness and kindness and tender heart are characteristics that are loved by her husband and overflowed and shared by their children. My husband and I just basically love this family.
We all have friends out there that make us complete. We may not see each other for 6 months at a time, but we love each other just the same. She is my cream to my coffee. I just can't live without.
(okay enough of the gushy stuff...now take a look at my favorite shot from their session)
Aren't they so adorable?
