It was a crisp, early Sunday morning in the fall.
The weather was ridiculously amazing.
The sunlight had just started breaking through the trees around us.
The location was beautiful.
And, best of all, the interactions between Kevin, Tara, Ava and Austin were real, loving and totally natural.
I have special memories from all of my sessions, but I remember getting all-warm-and-fuzzy the last time I photographed this family. I got in my car afterwards and thought about how fortunate I felt to have a job that allowed me to use the passion and desires that God gave me.
Not that I needed any other reason to look forward to my session with the Shaffers, but, I was
KIND-OF-DYING ‘looking forward to’ photographing a new member of the family, Alyssa, with her brother and sister…
Alyssa was TOO much.
Early into our session, she decided she was done with her adorable new shoes. So for the rest of the evening, she walked around barefoot! But as CUTE as those little feet were, it was NOTHING compared to seeing her walk around, story-telling, with her tiny little hands moving around the entire time…
Kevin, Tara, Ava, Austin and Alyssa-
Thank you for, once again, allowing me to capture your kids and family!
It’s always a treat!
I love this family so much. Beautiful inside and out!
