I don't even know where to begin when I talk about this family. Kari and I have known each other for a little over a year and we have become extremely close within this short time. We live two streets from each other, go to the same church and are both photographers. Kari's two boys are close in age with my girls and they all have become just as good of friends as her and I. I was ecstatic when she called to tell me her new edition to the family was going to be a little GIRL! It is obvious from the images that she is going to be just as stylish and cute as the rest of the family. "Baby M" is due any day now and I cannot wait to meet her. I know Im going to love her just as much as I do the rest of her amazing family!!!
Make sure you check out this HOT mama's work at http://www.zanderandbreck.com/ she is so talented and we have enjoyed sharing our love of photography with one another!!! I am so thankful we met and look forward to our lifelong friendship!!!

Meet my dear friends little girl, Emma. She is a blue eyed brown haired beauty! Not only is Emma a gorgeous little girl she is so sweet, always welcoming you with a smile! Emma has reminded me of a porcelain doll since she was born and Im so excited I get to watch her grow and change throughout the years. I always joke with her mama that my youngest is going to teach her all kinds of GREAT things ;) Im sure she will learn to use those big blue eyes to keep her out of trouble!

It is not very often I post another photographers work on my blog. but this particular photog is a very dear friend of mine and she took our family portraits this year. She is the owner of Zander&Breck Photography and at a whooping 8 1/2 months pregnant she ventured out into the woods with us to make sure we would get some great images before her bundle of joy arrived. Kari I cannot thank you enough for hanging out with us and capturing amazing memories I will treasure for years to come. Your the BEST!!!
So meet my family. Kenna just turned six and entered the first grade this year, and Kamryn is my youngest turning two in January. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and it is because of him I was able to pursue my dream of becoming a photographer. He is my biggest supporter and best friend. I thank GOD everyday for bringing these three AMAZING people into my life, we are so blessed!
Ava is my daughters age so I was well prepared for her to love or hate her session. Eighteen to twenty-four months is a very unpredictable age. One day they will love being a little model, whereas another you just have to understand it is not going to happen. This particular morning Ava was not having it! She looked adorable in her little petti romper and matching headband, but was not the least bit interested in being in-front of the camera. I tell you this because looking at her images you would have never guessed it, correct me if Im wrong. Sometimes the BEST images of your children are the ones where they are not posed smiling, but being themselves and doing what makes them happy. Ava just wanted to be a kid and do what she thought was fun, reading a book, not posing for a picture. Thanks to her mom for hanging in their with me and trusting me when I said "let her do her thing!" We were mere spectators in her little world :)

I did Gavyn's portraits last year and we had a blast, so of course I could not wait to see him again. It always takes him a bit to warm up, but once he is comfortable he becomes your best buddy! We hung out and talked about all kinds of BOY things. From turtles to football, you name it Gavyn could tell you something about it! When we first arrived at our location I told him to keep an eye out for rabbits because I had seen them venture out from the brush the last time I was there. Our session was drawing to an end and I was starting to worry because I knew he had his heart set on seeing a rabbit. Just as I started to give up hope what peeped out from behind the brush, YES the long awaited rabbit!!! The look on Gavyn's face was priceless and of course I caught it on camera! I loved that not only did we get Gavyn's moms some amazing images to display in her home, memories were made and we had a great time making them! Not very many six years old boys are interested in going to a photo shoot, but if you find a way to relate to them and have FUN, the outcome will be amazing! Thanks for letting me see the world through the eyes of a little boy, your one of a kind Mr. Gavyn.
