Family, Children, Photography

Smith Family

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a minute to sit down and blog about recent sessions. I know, it’s a super lame excuse, but it is what it is.

Anyway, this past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting with Kayla and Ben and adorable little Liam. I walked up to our location and they were playing with bubble guns! I love when parents take a little extra time before our shoot to do fun things with the kids - it helps set them at ease. We chatted for a bit and then got down to business! Liam initially got a bit nervous and wanted to wander around. I’m 100% on board with this because it helps to do two things: 1. it helps them get to know me, and set them at ease. 2. it gets the wiggles out! Little bodies are meant to move, and it can be hard for kids to sit in one place for too long. I like my sessions to be laid back and fun, so everyone enjoys it (including dad! Ha).

They were just the sweetest parents, Liam was obviously cherished and nurtured by both his parents and it showed in how well behaved he was and how loving he was!

I solemnly swear to continue to update my blog more often - especially since it’s about to be baby season for me! (Not mine, other people’s…haha, I don’t need to start any rumors about myself)

Emily - 2018 Senior

If you don't know Emily - let me take a second and just say that she has one of the most genuine smiles, caring hearts, and beautiful personalities of any person I have EVER met.

Her smile lights up her whole face and she is always willing to give a smile to everyone she meets! Emily is a true light and joy to those who know her! She is passionate about the things in life she loves - God, drums, her family, and her church family. 

I was SO excited to be able to have the honor of taking her senior photos. She is truly a special person that brings joy to everyone she meets. 

So here's to Emily - on your last year in High School, remember to carry your joy through life and you will go far!

Can't wait to share the finished gallery! :) :)
