Family Portraits

The Bowen Family

Photographing this family was such a treat!  I couldn't get enough of their authentic interactions with one another.  It was beautiful and real.  And these are the things I love to photograph.  Of course they are all just gorgeous and the evening weather could not have felt any better.   And these busy boys had the most amazing manners.  They don't get much sweeter than this family right here!

 

The Buckalew Family

I am so blessed when I get to see families year after year.  I love seeing families change and grow. And I also get the opportunity to spend time with families that I have grown to love.  Its not hard to love this family!  They are so sweet:) And they have the rare ability to be playful, sarcastic and completely loving and encouraging at the same time!  So grateful to know them!

The Bauer Family

I cannot tell you how much I look forward to seeing this family!  Every single time it is a new adventure and I fall a little more in love with them.  And these kids melt me!  I love watching their sweet sibling bond.  The way that they play together is just beautiful!  And then there was the evening light and the fountain that made them completely giddy.  I guess you could say that it was just a perfect evening! 

The Holloman Family

I am so thankful to call these folks my family!  And even more grateful to be able to capture these sweet moments between them.  And I know that I am bias, but... They. Are. Gorgeous.  I mean, look at them!  So much laughing and playing and chewing gum (mostly by Kennedi) and just warmth.  

Scott Family

Holly Scott.  Where do I begin!?!  I have only truly known her for a little over a year.  In that time I have learned so much from her as a mother and a person.  She is strong and kind and good.  She is a woman of God and a wonderful friend.  And her family...well, when they are all together it is like magic.  Lots of laughter and fun and plenty of love.  

The Popple Family

One of the perks of photographing people is getting the opportunity to meet and connect with amazing families.  The Popple family is such a great example of this!  I felt like I was hanging out with old friends.  And their son Landon, I mean come on, look at him!  He is so darn cute!  During this session I was able to learn so much about this family that recently moved here and opened up a Pediatric Dentist office.  Ben and Deanna both work at White Oak Pediatric Dentistry which I had already heard amazing things about.  And after talking with Ben about my own children's teeth there is no doubt in my mind that we will be making a visit there very soon!  Amazing people and an amazing evening!

The Fonoimoana Family

Sometimes there just aren't any words to describe a wonderful moment that God creates.  He is just so good.  All I can say is that God has used this family to bless me.  Photographing them was an honor and I am so thankful to know them.  And seriously could they be any more beautiful?! Life happened and made this session start late and I didn't think there would be enough light to capture very many pictures.  But evidently this family was all the light I needed because I had so many photos to choose from:)

The Hammett Family

I really love shooting families of 3.  That first born baby basically hung the moon in the eyes of their parents.  And RaeLynn...I mean look at her! She is to die for! Those two bottom teeth that aren't even because they are still growing in!  One look at her and we were smitten!  My favorite part of this session is that every picture where mom and dad are looking at her you can FEEL the sheer love. Every. Single. Picture.  Priceless!

The Arnold Family

It is not often that we take on extended family photos, but we are seriously thankful to have been chosen to photograph the Arnold family!  We went expecting a touch of chaos, instead we were overwhelmed with love and lots of fun.  Just look at this gorgeous family! We have nothing but great things to say about each and every one of them.  We hope to photograph them all again very soon!

The Shaw Family

We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph this family on several occasions. They bring so much energy to each session.  And I LOVE  their sense of humor!  Each time we see them we feel at ease.  There is something so beautiful about watching them interact and love on each other.  The evening was full of laughter, hugs, hunting for bugs (thanks to Parker), and little Sadie practicing her new walking skills! So many great interacting shots from this session!  Makes me so happy!
