How do I even begin to write such a special blog post????? When I met this adorable little girl she was my boyfriends niece. Soon after she was my fiance's niece, 9 months after that she was the Flower Girl in our wedding & she became my niece too. Oh good grief...here comes the tears!! LOL! She was a nibblicious girl who I always thought looked like a real live Precious Moments doll with her big eyes & squishy cheeks. Always the best of manners even when I met her back at the age of 2. I have no memories of her going thru the terribles or sassies. Just beautiful, just smiles. A few years after her Uncle Ben & I got married she became my childrens cousin & she has loved them & played with them. My lovies absolutely adore her & are always excited to see her & be with her. She's gotten taller over the years. Of course everyone is taller than me! But I think I refused to really notice that she wasn't just getting taller. Miss A was growing up. I have a plethora of beautiful shots of her from yesterday. It was a sweltering day & she rocked outfit changes, heels & lots of walking. I chose this image because this section of photographing was when it really hit me that these are her senior pics & I started to get choked up. I spent 20 minutes melting up in my barn loft looking for the 1st pic I ever took of her, but couldn't find it. I think God wanted to pick this one because she was my flower girl & here she is still beautiful inside & out with flowers again. The only think keeping me from being a hot mess of tears typing this is my excitement for her future because I know it will continue being beautiful & full of love just like her. Love you Miss A! xoxoxoxo

I was honored last year to do 1 year portraits for the beautiful Miss S. I was extra honored to do portraits again for her & all her very handsome brothers. It was a treat to see the dynamic of these siblings. Miss S may be the tiniest, but she is tough & is the boss. Which seems to work out because she has all of these lil men wrapped around her fingers. They not only absolutely adore her, but for brothers - they needed no cue from me to wrap their arms around each other for a shot. I have lots of gorgeous images of them from this session & it's always hard to pick 1 sneak peek. I picked one that showed how beautiful they are inside & out. Look at how close they are standing next to each other & their heads together. Just melts my heart & my lens. They have some very blessed parents. Thank you W Family for a super fun morning!
