You can’t help but look at this family and see Love. Devotion. Honor. As I downloaded their images from my camera after their session, I actually teared up. The way they look at each other. Their bond as a family is powerful and deep. It is a beautiful sight to see.

I recently had a client comment to me at her session, “Where are the twins? I haven’t seen them on the blog lately!” Well, shame on me for not sharing their latest session yet! (And Tiffany, don’t worry … this gal isn’t the creepy stalker type. She’s very sweet, and just an avid blog reader who thinks your girls are lovely, as do I!) I first photographed these two were they were babies, and I admit, it took me a little while to tell them apart. I still see glimpses of each sister in the other, but it is heartwarming to see how they have grown into their own unique and radiant young lady. I know these two sisters will always share a deep bond no matter where their future leads them.

    Tiffany - Always love seeing my sweet girls on your blog! I’m ready for our Harry Potter session this year in October! And, the girls have agreed on one last pettiskirt/princess-y type session for mommy’s mother’s day present, so maybe we can set up a mini-session for early summer to capture the last moments of little girl fun and get a different perspective and season since we usually shoot in the fall?ReplyCancel

    Tiffany L - Tiffany, I can’t believe how much the girls have grown and how much they look just like mommy! Beautiful as ever!ReplyCancel

Susan and I met nearly 13 years ago, when our oldest boys were toddlers in a playgroup together. She has been a dear friend all this time, as we’ve watched our boys become teenagers, with their siblings not far behind. Over the years, we’ve shared laughter and tears. I will forever remember this family as part of my “village” … you know, that village we all need to raise these children with whom God has entrusted us. I can’t imagine how anything in life is possible without that village. Susan and Bryan, thank you for your friendship these years, and thank you for the honor of being your photographer.

Mr. Garrett is growing so fast! The Milestones Collection, my portrait plan for a baby’s first year, is probably one of  my most favorite things about my job. Getting to see these little ones grow bit by bit, month by month. Getting to spend time with sweet families, especially ones like this one I’ve been blessed to know and work with through three sons! And most of all, the honor of being entrusted with these precious and fleeting moments and memories, to be privileged to capture them for a family. I am humbled and grateful.
