Madison and Laken surprised their mom on Mother’s Day with a gift card for my family portraits session. The older I get, the more I treasure experiences over physical gifts. And to be able to capture those memories while you’re living the experience? Can’t get better than that! Truly, I believe a photo session is the best gift for the one who has everything. At the end of the day, material goods don’t matter nearly as much as the legacy you’re building, through your children, through how you leave your footprints. I get so excited when photographing families because I hold this mission close to my heart – to create heirlooms for their legacy.
I had the pleasure of photographing Madison’s wedding day and she planned this family session prior to her wedding. The trust she placed in me is not lost upon me. 🙂 I’m truly honored! And it’s SO MUCH fun to catch up with this family. I captured many tender moments during the wedding day of Renee helping her daughter into the dress, of Harper admiring her aunt’s beautiful gown, and of Laken supporting Madison throughout the day. Now, I get to photograph them again in a more casual setting. The spotlight is no longer on Madison (sorry, my beautiful bride :P), but on Renee.
They were in town for just a day, and it rained the entire morning into early afternoon. Thankfully, the rain stopped just as our session was about to begin. This session was so carefree and easy-going from the start. I heard Harper skipped her nap, but she was still an absolute gem. Loves that she knows my name too! 🙂 And scroll all the way down this blog for a little bonus for little Harper, who loves her uncle Luca and the latest Pixar animation also titled Luca. ?
