So this was definitely a collaborative effort with my sister. We always help each other out with family pictures, but we always seem to wait until it’s bitterly cold outside. Brilliant idea with toddlers. Anyways, thank you Linda for making sure I have a few pictures of my own family on this blog. Although I never really planned on this whole crazy-motherhood-thing-with-4-kids, it’s turned out to be just what I wanted. Aghhh. Love them so much it hurts.
So I took these back in July but never had a chance to blog them. I drive by these lavender fields almost every day and knew that someday I would take Josie’s pictures there. Or Jason’s. But somehow the idea of Jason holding a bunch of lavender near his face didn’t have quite the same appeal. Anyways, Josie is my dream model. She sits and smiles and wants me to take her picture all day long. Only requirement is that I show her each one in the camera after I take it. Indeed, I sometimes have trouble getting more candid shots of her because she is so aware of the camera. Quite precocious that one. Last week she looked in the mirror and whispered to herself, “adorable.” What’s a mom to do?

Well. Officially, this is my last session. Of course, you KNOW I will still take pictures of my own kids, so I’m not shutting this blog down completely. I have to say I could not have ended on a better note. Kristy and I have been planning this shoot for ages, ever since she won a gift certificate at a school auction. I think it all worked out for the best, because we ended up with a perfect evening. Perfect. I love this family and I’m so glad we had this chance. Thank you for making it so easy and fun. And thank you for climbing that hill for a look at the sunset. It was so worth it! Enjoy!
I was so happy to spend a spectacular fall morning with some old friends. I will always remember Heather’s laugh from high school days! It was rather contagious. Heather and Scott, it was a pleasure hanging out with your amazing boys. You are obviously doing something right and I may come pick your brain when my own kids hit the teenage years! I have to admit to a few tears while editing your photos, knowing they don’t seem quite complete. I hope these pictures show a glimpse of the love, faith, and strength that I saw. Enjoy!
Oh, she is the sweetest little one year old ever. Sitting there with her two fingers in her mouth. I must admit I melted a little when I had the chance to hold her for a bit. Emily and Joel, you have such a bright spot in your world! I wish you all the best of memories as you watch her grow and change and bloom. Enjoy!
