Another buggy evening, but also another wonderful session. This family is great and so easy-going, which makes our time together so much fun. Their little girls have personality for days, and I loved capturing the joy and funny faces. Can't wait for the new little one to join them soon!
I've recently been taking the time in my sessions to find the details. I love the feel those images give. As I've watched my kiddos go through two years of life with me, I start to think back to all the times I've kissed those chubby little fingers and toes, tickled those plump bellies, and--I hope this doesn't sound weird--nuzzled my face into the softest heads of hair. I mean, my son had silk for hair for a good year, and I just remember every night as I cuddled him and his sister, I would touch my cheek to his head.
These are the things I want to know about the families I meet. What are those details--those things about your little ones--that you just love? I want to capture that, to freeze it in a photograph, so that memory stays with you.
My hope is to capture bits of these little details in all my sessions, and I love it when families share which ones are most meaningful to them before the first picture is taken.
I had the privilege of photographing a good friend of mine when I was in Nebraska a couple weeks ago. Jenni and I played basketball together in college, and she has been a dear friend since. She is the type of person who is always fun to be around, and conversation flows easily. It was great getting to spend time with her, her husband, and her little kiddo. He is a cutie! And he has another brother or sister on the way!
Jenni, thanks for letting me spend the afternoon with you, and I'm still waiting for us to take our show on the road!
