oh, baby-girl. how your mommy and daddy, and aunts and uncles, and grandmas and grandpas, and your whole church family, love you to bits.
what a good girl you were for us!
here’s what your daddy had to say:
“(katelyn)… the greatest joy God has allowed me to experience is being your husband and schaffer’s father. i love you.”
big things, baby-girl… your Papa-God has BIG THINGS ahead for you.
(and we love you, too!) –a-girl and miss angela
we started the evening in a bit of a rush; the area we’d chosen to shoot was actually new to both of us and both of us were rolling in in a mad dash! that didn’t matter a bit, though – anissa came ready to work the light for all it was worth, and she did an awesome job!
my a-girl has been assisting a lot lately, but she shot quite a bit on this session. um, pretty sure she’s amazing. just sayin’.
anissa, you look beautiful!
congratulations on your senior year, sweet girl. thanks so much for letting us help you capture this moment… make it matter!
hugs! angela (and a-girl)
waaay into our holiday editing, but there was no way i could hold off to share a couple quick (hot) peeks of catie and nick. oh, dear.
okay. first of all, i love, LOVE that brit decided on a whim to drive up from naples to do a very special session to surprise the “other man” in her life. that she and i hadn’t seen each other since high school (and i won’t say how long that’s been) and that when we did, i had the very special gift to do this session for them.
i love that brit emailed me after the session to say michael might want to model because he loved taking pictures with miss angela (and me, too, bud!)…
i love that brit is a “hot mom” and that her wonderful-wild-boy makes me giggle and keeps her hopping – and smiling.
this one’s funny because she almost looks grumpy with him, and i never saw that happen. brit was truly a mom who let the session roll as it would, and as a result, we caught the most “real” moments!
this little man has a very long and miraculous story of conquering challenges, and that makes his adventurous spirit very special. thank you, michael, for introducing me to your elephants. somehow the idea of such big, strong creatures is inspiring next to a guy who’s conquered so much in his life so far!
note to mom-of-five-self: while green fire escapes are cool, one should always check first for dead birds. rule-of-life #4001 – boys WILL notice the dead bird. avoidance is impossible. that’s all.
oh, how i love, love, love this image. i can’t stop giggling. can you?
shelya is a fellow photographer who is also a jesus-sister and has become a good friend. when she offered to swap family portraits i practically shouted “yes!” everyone always asks us who we’d choose to do our family portraits and it is really cool to put ourselves in the hands of another photographer! (also super nerve-wracking to shoot another photographer, because you know they have a vision, too, and i’m spoiled enough to get to shoot a few of those in the coming months… i hope i’m as wonderful a client as they are!)
i’ve been brainstorming this idea for about a year-ish, and just never made time to do it! shelya and i decided to MAKE it happen as a trial run for our clients… if this is a concept you’d like to try, let us know and we’ll be planning a day in the field this winter or spring!
oh, sweet friend, thank you, thank you for sharing your family! BIG hugs…
