This is one of my favorite sessions that this family does! Their tiny little two year old on their old tree-lined dirt driveway. LOVE. It just doesn’t get a whole lot more southern than that, in my opinion. And I love that this is the driveway that these children will grow up driving their toy trucks on, racing down, and learning to pedal their bikes on. The memories that will be made on this dirt path are priceless, and I know that their momma and daddy will think of that every time they look at these portraits! We photographed Hampton and Katie Brice a couple of years ago, and now it was Bowen’s turn. He’s got the most incredible smile, and I just love how this all turned out. And ending the session with all of the siblings playing in the dirt pile that Hurricane Matthew so generously created for them was fitting. Ending the session in the port-a-potty that the construction crew uses? Well, that was bit odd. But also hilarious and perfectly representative of what their family has gone through since that storm blew in and rocked our area! Guys, as always, it was fun! Can’t wait for next time!
We’re still in the process of wrapping up 2017 senior sessions over here! This is one that Collin photographed recently that I just love. He met Kayla out at their family farm where she grew up to do this session. I adore when a session location is personal and meaningful to the person being photographed! Obviously, Kayla was completely at home here because, well, it is her home. It was perfect for her! On Sunday I was strolling through Target by myself when I looked around and realized that nearly every other shopper in the store was a parent and a child who was obviously heading off for college, shopping for dorm room stuff. Seriously, everywhere I turned I saw groups of them! It honestly made me tear up a little bit, realizing just how fast that time in life comes. I mean, I feel like it was just recently that I was shopping in the baby department at Target, but in actuality I’m closer to dorm room shopping for my oldest than I am to baby department shopping. The realization made me choke a little bit on my Starbucks and want to run home to Mak and CB and smother them in hugs and kisses and beg them not to leave me too soon. HA! It’s okay, they’re used to my random emotional tirades. Kayla, thanks for such a fun session! We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
Y’all, this baby girl is pure sweetness!! Anniston is the youngest of four girls, so she has three “extra” mommas who think she’s the greatest thing ever, and she most definitely thinks they’re pretty amazing as well. I loved watching her face light up when she saw them! This was Anniston’s bits of life session, and that image of her with her hands clasped at her chin just melts me! How sweet is she?! Anniston, we love you, Baby! See you again soon!
Remember sweet Maggie’s adorably plump cheeks that I blogged yesterday? Well, how about we keep with that theme and add Baby Shep to the blog today! He’s absolutely ADORABLE, and I pray that those awesome cheeks that the good Lord blessed him with don’t leave anytime soon! Shep was a sweetheart for his newborn session, and (of course) I had the best time snuggling him. And that Anna Reaves! Honestly, you never know how a big sibling is going to do at a newborn session, but she was great! I know these two will be the best of buddies before too long. Welcome to the world, sweet Shep! We’re so glad you’re here!
Y’all, this girl and those cheeks! What a cutie! It had been several months since we had seen Miss Maggie Page at her newborn session, and Goodness, sweet girl has changed! She’s the happiest, sweetest little thing, and she’s sporting some of the best baby rolls I’ve ever seen. We had so much fun with her! Miss Maggie, we can’t wait to see you again soon!
