“I can hear her heartbeat
for a thousand miles,
and the heavens open
every time she smiles…”

Family sessions are always my favorite. I love getting to catch the kids in action doing the things they enjoy doing. They are only little for such a short time, so these are always some of my favorite images. In this session I especially love the hugs they gave mommy and daddy. Such a cute moment.

He is such a big boy with big smiles. He absolutely loved having a whole cake to himself. He dug in immediately using his candle as a spoon. It was so funny watching him. Sissy was watching too. She really really wanted to share the cake with him. In the end she did and they happily sat eating cake together. They are so so cute! Happy Birthday Gideon!!!

My girls love their horses and honestly the horses love them back. Fancy has been in the family since she was born on Grandpa Wayne’s property nearly 30 years ago. Hannah inherited her when she was ten and the two went on adventures all over the area where we live. Once Hannah and our neighbor Lorie went on a ride. Hannah was on bare back. As they went up a steep hill Hannah began to slide off of Fancy. Fancy stopped and waited for Hannah to climb back up. She has also helped Hannah on with a little nudge from her nose. She has been one of those irreplaceable horses. Mahala learned to ride on her and Maya has also. Maya has painted her “toe nails”. Trimmed her tail when I wasn’t watching and pretended she was a horse eating grass right underneath her. (Not something I let her do when I caught her) She has been the best horse a little girl could ask for. Champagne (Chammy) has come along recently as the girls have gotten more experienced at riding. She and the girls have gone on many adventures together. She is a sweet heart so long as her friend Fancy is with her. She throws such a fit if she has to leave her best friend that the girls have decided to always take Fancy along. Sometimes Fancy even goes without a rider. She just tags along for the ride. They are all best friends. Fancy, Chammy and their girls.

I love this session. It was so fun to watch the little kids play in the creek. It was a beautiful sunny day and the family was all together again. Some from near and some from far away. They were gathered to remember Jon and to celebrate his birthday. What better way to do so than to meet at one of his favorite places. The light filtered between the tree branches, Mill creek ran by singing a happy little song, and the Titus family spent the day together in this beautiful place.

Tiny little Arabella Rose is finishing up her last little bits of growing before she makes her big debut. Mommy, Daddy and Kaylee are so excited to meet her. I love following the McCoy family from their wedding, through their first baby and onto number two. I can’t wait for our newborn session. It’s less than a month away most likely.

These two are the cutest brother and sister duo. Don’t you love their happy faces and laughter. I love it so much. They were so great too. They didn’t mind hugging or taking pictures together a bit. My Miss Maya had to get in on a few cousin pictures too since she is a cousin. So keep your eye open for her purple coat, and have a happy day friends!

This project is close to my heart. I was having a rough winter. Working through the feelings that come with loss, sickness, grief. I was feeling so low. I felt like God put on my heart to reach out to other women and to lift them up. To create a session where I could help them see how beautiful they are. How worthwhile they are. The song Beautiful, by Mercy Me, really fit with what I wanted to say and express. I reached out to my photography followers to ask if anyone would want to join me for this project. I had the perfect volunteers. Women who I love and respect and who I really enjoyed hanging out with for an evening of photography and gabbing and laughter. I love all of these ladies so much. Each one is making it through life in their own way. Each one has things they are excited for and looking forward to. Things they are working on. I hope you love this project to. I hope it speaks to your heart. You are beautiful, you are treasured, you are loved!

Bill and Barbara decided to renew their vows after 34 years of marriage. It was such a beautiful little service. I loved getting to be in the background listening. Barbara prepared a scripture passage for each family member to read. They took turns reading their Bible passages and speaking blessings over each other. I can’t imagine a more meaningful thing for a family to come together and do. It was absolutely beautiful. Bill and Barbara had the biggest smiles for their big day. I loved watching them look in each other’s eyes. Their hearts one heart after so many years together. Bill laughed and smiled and Barbara had the most sweet humble spirit. I really enjoyed getting to know them even if it was just for a moment. Such a beautiful family.
