“We all have that one family or client who makes our heart sing each time they contact us for photos. This is the family that makes my heart sing. They’ve been with me since the very beginning — before I really knew anything about shutter speed, aperture, or ISO. They’ve always trusted my vision and allowed me creative freedom, and because of that, every one of their sessions display an authentic connection. They allow their children to be wild and free. They laugh, play, and snuggle. They enjoy themselves, and it shows. For this session, I knew I wanted the location to be the wildflower field my husband planted just for me on the back of our property. It possesses many of the same qualities as this family – joy, beauty, and full of light and love.”
