What better way to spend the day after Christmas than with this sweet family! I enjoyed our time outside in the crazy warm weather (60’s in December in Tennessee)! It was the perfect day. I love overcast! I loved everything about this session…family…sisters…brothers…cousins…grandparents…seasoned love…young love…mother’s love…mother and father loving their adult daughters, father-son bonding, & of course little boys loving their mamas…you can tell this family loves deeply. And look for the “Argh” pirate, Lighting Bolt “Bolting” & shark, that made it for sure fun from the boys!
The glow of a woman bursting with excitement as they anticipate the coming of their sweet little one is one of both joy and honor for me as a photographer. I absolutely love capturing it. I love the gift of life.
All boy: dirt, sweat, chasing him around the park, getting too close to the water, jumping from the playground…this session certainly showed me the adventerous spirit of little boys my daughter’s age. Mom & me were worn out after this session at the park. I told her she was super mom!! It wouldn’t be a toddler session without wiping tears and little hands. Love this little guy and his sweet mom!
It’s been a growing season!! My family is growing as we are adding a sweet little bundle this July! Our other one turned two and continues to amaze us with smarts, sweet spirit and how big they grow! My Mops (Mothers of Preschoolers) group is growing and we have a fabulous theme for next year, “Be You Bravely!” Our garden is growing with each rainfall. To watch little seeds (both literally & figuratively) grow and flourish is such an incredible blessing!! I have been one busy mama & wife. And thanks to a fabulous camera I am capturing this growth on film!
What a fun afternoon to spend with this family! The Grist Mill below Norris Dam is a beautiful, rustic, natural location with stunning options for fall photos. This family was full of humor and I enjoyed watching boys be boys. The saying couldn’t be more true. Levi and Will were the embodiment of it. I enjoyed the fall afternoon, this family and a new location!
Waiting 5 years to conceive, in the meantime adopted sweet (now four year old) R, my sweet friends Brent & Lynsi were given the incredible gift of conception. M came at the perfect time and truly is joining a very dear family. She is a joy…and absolutely tiny! Around 5 lbs at this session. So excited to watch this family grow!!
The greatest Love ever shown…
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form,
he humbled himself by
becoming obedient to the point
of death, even death on a cross.
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
(Philippians 2:5-11 ESV)
He is risen!!
