Sweet, simple newborn sessions are my very favorite! Parker, you are the most handsome little guy!
My heart was so happy when Ellen reached out to me about setting up a session for her family. I have known her husband, Jeff, for my entire life (as in, my parents and his parents were friends before either of us were born). So imagine what a treat it was for me to hang out for an evening and capture a little bit of them doing life as a family! Ellen and Jeff and the four big kids have just welcomed a new little brother. We made sure to get some traditional family photos as well as document some real life too.
Is your family a good fit for a family film? YES!!
Still images are timeless and wonderful, but oh, to capture their twirls and squeals and tiny voices. Don’t wait…they are changing way too fast! These are truly my new OBSESSION! Check out this precious family’s Fresh 48 Story Session Film. I so WISH I had one of these for each of my babies.
The word that comes to mind when I think about this session is “enchanted” closely followed by “magical”. It was raining when we arrived at our location, as it had been the entire afternoon. I was so happy that this mama was willing to give it a shot anyway in hopes that the rain would clear. And it did. And beauty emerged.
You know all the little things you see as a mama? The ordinary every day sort? Sleepy heads coming down the stairs for breakfast. Tiny noses and hands pressed against glass waiting for Daddy. Tubs full of soapy bath babies. Snuggles in laps. Well-loved books read in all the silly voices. These are sacred. These are your stories and theirs. I enjoy the timelessness of a posed session, but this goes a bit deeper and captures the fabric and song of your family. This time next year, they will be a year older. Let me capture your family as it is now. Let me capture your story…
I was over the moon to spend a little time with the Barger family as they said goodbye to their Alabama home. Of course “home” is wherever a family is together, but a beautiful season of life unfolded in this place, one I hope I was able to bottle up and send with them to remember for years to come.
