I met Emerson and her mommy for a quick session in the flowers. Little did we know that we were about to be derailed by miserable rain showers and highway construction. I typically cancel in moments like these (for the rain) but circumstances made it to where I wouldn't be able to come back to the field until after the flowers had already died. Well mother nature showed us her true glory that evening. The rain died down to a mist and skies parted just a sliver so the sun could shine down on Emme. I had to push my camera harder than I've done in a long time but this has to be one of my favorite sets of images ever. Thanks for looking, guys!
I've photographed this amazing family countless amounts of times and each time I love it more than the last. They're naturals in front of the camera, smarties obsessed, and follow "Miss Jen's" rigid instructions when told. This session was absolutely amazing! We hit up different parts of the city and chased the sun for these beauties. There's nothing better than having an amazing time while doing your job (is this real life?!)
I absolutely loved meeting Maya for the first time this week. Her mama and I met on an online moms group many years ago and have been friends ever since. Jennifer's pregnancy was full of unknowns and new situations to navigate but Maya came in to this world as perfect as they come. You can look straight in to her eyes and see that she's been here before. I absolutely wanted to sneak her in my camera bag and run home! Welcome earthside, Maya...the world has been waiting for you!
We try to hit up the sunflower fields each year and while they always end up being my favorite images of my children, the ever-growing crowds are becoming unpleasant. I waited until the last 20 minutes of sunlight to capture this series of my little ones. The colors, richness, and connection OWN my heart. We're moving soon and I'm thinking I need to make a wall collage from this series!
I cannot deal with this chub! Olive is such a personality...she lights up a room whenever she enters. I definitely think she's our creative soul.
I always know how I want colors in my photos from the beginning of shooting. These definitely needed a warm, film-like, light and airy feel to them. I absolutely love this series and one of her images was featured over at The Happy Togs insta!
