About a year ago, I did one of my favorite family sessions to date. When they contacted me to schedule another session, I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to compete with their last session! But the joy and sweetness of this family shines like the autumn sun and I am so excited to share their session with you (of course, the shining autumn sun played it's roll very well too!). This is one of the first shots I took that evening and I adore everything about it!! I mean, really?!? Who is actually that perfect??
Nathan's Bubby and Papa got to come along for this session and he was overjoyed to have them near!
Families with young children are some of my favorite things to photograph, mostly because the joy in a child CAN'T BE CONTAINED and it is so infectious! I leave these shoots feeling so inspired and re-energized after watching the adoration in all the adult eyes for the playful little eyes.
If you follow me on Facebook, you might've seen my post about tearing up while editing this session (and if you DON'T follow me on Facebook, you should by clicking here!). This next photo of Nathan and his Papa is the one that got me right in the feels. I have lost both my grandaddies and would dearly love to feel their strong hands wrapped around me and their soft faces pressed to mine just one more time. Grandparents are such a gift and Nathan is so lucky to have such great ones so close!
I know I say it often, but I really feel like I have the best job in the world! Thanks so much for spending some time with me on a perfect fall afternoon and for sharing some of your love of family with me! You guys really lifted me up!
Please enjoy session previews, silly stories about my children, and other random thoughts I feel compelled to share!
