so before we did a quick change and offered the boys to our oldest for some playground “man time,” we took summer and jason’s family on a mini photo adventure.
having known little j. since we photographed his newborn session at just a few days old, it is such fun to watch him grow up into a little man.
big brother (also a j.) is so grown up already…
her mommy and daddy have loved her from the moment they found out they would have her. she’s breathtakingly beautiful, and she is adored by extended family and friends who would move heaven and earth to make her smile.
welcome to the world, baby finley.
it is a better place with you in it.
hugs!! miss angela
what a privilege it is to follow a little boy from being just a glimmer of joy in mama’s tummy to being a bona-fide little boy of nine months already! we had so much fun going back to the site of melissa and david’s maternity session and letting baby j. experience the same spots his mom and dad love. a first peek:
love to you, sweet baby j.
hugs! -miss angela
just a little food love. head over to our family blog for the recipe for this little bit of autumn deliciousness. trust me, it’s worth it.
hugs, and happy indulging.
there is a growing trend, initiated by an incredible artist named jesh derox, toward photography which not only captures the love between people, but actually aims to renew it, revive it, and help it grow. this has always been my heart, and it is pure joy to get to participate in a session where our clients open up and share their stories and their hearts.
nicole and brent’s one year anniversary was coming and she decided it would be awesome to celebrate with a portrait session (um, yeah!).
because of some events-that-were-out-of-anyone’s control on her wedding day (they may have involved a rebellious puppy and family members having to chase said errant pet), nicole really wanted photos with her parents. she also wanted them to have some of the two of them. (i learned in our time together that they only have a few polaroids from their wedding day…) she copied me on the adorable email she wrote the family convincing them of the need for their session, and i think it worked, because everyone came happy to partake!
i can’t express in words the joy it was to see eddie and gwen relax into decades of married commitment… and enjoy capturing their fond memories of betsy (this is the Triumph that took them on their earliest dates, and on which eddie proposed to gwen. you heard that right!)
brent was up for anything to make his bride happy. i think the session did that, but i think he’s been doing it for at least a year.
nicole had seen a cool idea on pinterest to incorporate a photo from the year before into their annual sessions… so we had to recreate the feel of the framed wedding portrait she brought!
a beloved session is an incredible way to remember what drew you together in the first place. it’s an awesome opportunity to step away from busy, and to look each other in the eye, and to capture that love you have, to pass on to the next generation.
thank you, nicole and brent, eddie and gwen, for trusting me with your hearts!
