I spent some time with this sweet family last Thursday evening. Big sister was such a sweetie and she knew just how to make baby “Z” laugh and smile. Mom and dad did a great job. “M” family I hope that you enjoy your sneak peek!

 

I had such a fun day at the lake with this family.  This little boy was such a treat to photograph and just spend time with. And his parents were really sweet as well!

 

 

In December 2011 I was contacted by a soldier serving halfway across the world. She wanted to give a gift of a photo session to a fellow soldier that she had served with in Afghanistan. She even wrote the beautiful poignant words below to include with the gift. Fast forward to 2013, this soldier is finally home with his son. We got some awesome shots of these two playing together. My favorites are a toss up between the smiley shot at the fountain and the hide and seek photo. Is there anything that describes the innocence of childhood better than a photo of hide and seek? This little boy is adorable and one thing is for certain, he’s excited to have his dad home.

Elwood it was so great to meet you and your sweet son.

Elwood  and Lisa (wherever you are serving today) I hope that you love the sneak peek.

This little cutie was so much fun. He was so excited to explore and play with his mom.  He was quite the adventurer climbing the jungle gym and going down the slide. One of my favorites is the one of him being followed by his mom through the playground.  The photo captured his pure joy of playing with his awesome mom.

Rachel, Thanks again for asking me to capture “R” at play. I hope you love your photos for years to come.

These brothers were so full of energy. We had some fun exploring the park and eventually we were able to get them to take a minute and get some really sweet shots.

“L” Family it was really great to meet you! I hope you love your sneak peek!

This family was so sweet. From the moment I spoke with mom I just knew they were going to be adorable and ready for some fun. We had a great time. Mom and dad warned that the boys might not be into photos. So we were all surprised when they turned it on and couldn’t wait to take photos, alone, with each other and with their parents. It was awesome. Favorite part of the session- big brother shaking his hiney to get a few laughs from his brother. My favorite photo from the sesison? Well there were quite a few. 1. Brother hugging. How sweet are they? 2. Mom and dad alone. They just celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary the day before  and shared with me that because of inclement weather their wedding potos didn’t turn out. They were hoping to get a few good ones that day. Hopefully we achieved that!

S family, it was truly a pleasure. I hope you love your sneak peek!

I love in home sessions and this one didn’t disappoint. It took a little while for this little girl to warm up but once she did we got some great shots. Big brother on the other hand, no problem. He showed me his skills as a homerun hitter, showed his slide, his garden (and he knew everything that was growing in there) and even his big wheel. What a fun session. Oh and how much do you love the black & white? It is definitely my favorite. I love the way siblings interact with each other and it’s great when we can capture it on film!

W family, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to capture your awesome family. I hope you love your sneak peek!

There were so many things I loved about this session and so many photos to choose from. It was hard to narrow it down for this sneak peek. First of all mom and dad were high school sweethearts. So where better to have this family session than their Alma mater? That’s right we headed to the beautiful campus of John Carroll high school and took some incredible photos. In fact, we actually duplicated a photo of the two of them that was taken when they were 18 years old during graduation practice. How cute is that? And then for some fun, we added their adorable boys to the photo.  At that very moment the old quote “you’ve come a long way baby” started echoing in my head. Speaking of the boys, I love it when the children are excited to get their photo taken. This big brother said yes and ok to everything I asked him to do and with a smile on his face no less. He watched out for his smiley happy brother and we got some fun shots.

W family, it was such a pleasure to spend my Sunday morning with you guys. You were so much fun. I hope you love your sneak peek.

These little boys were so cute. Big brother was always watching out for his younger sibling. Have I mentioned how cute I think that is and how much I love seeing it. The best was when he helped his younger brother ring the old school house bell. So sweet!  Dad even found us a cool hidden teepee to hang out under and take a few pics.

V family, it was so great to meet you! THanks so much for choosing me to capture your family at this time in your lives. I hope you love your sneak peek.

What a fun session this was. It had been postponed once because of rain so I was so glad to finally get to meet these great parents and their adorable little girl. She was quite mobile wanting to experience everything the park had to offer. I’m sure she was thinking “this is no time to stop and take pictures, I want to play!” So we did! We played on the playground, we hid by the statues, we blew some bubbles and we ran around, boy did we run around.  We just concentrated on having fun and what came next were a few magical photos that I just love. I’m happy to share a few here.

K family it was so wonderful to meet you guys. I hope you love your sneak peek!

in-joy! ~ Melissa
