I was beyond excited when Melissa asked me a couple of weeks ago to photograph her family. I have known them for quite some time, and know that they are a bright, fun-loving, and that she and her husband, Dave, genuinely love their kids. Julia and Evan are tons of fun- curious, confident, and adventurous, with plenty of expression! The day of the shoot started out with a migraine and thunderstorms, and I wasn't sure whether we were going to be able to complete our session as planned, but after a little anxiety, a short prayer, and a flexible attitude, we definitely made the most of it!!!
Here sits the family on the steps of the very pavillion where Dave and Melissa were married! How their beautiful family has grown since then...
Here is Evan, their little guy.
This is Julia, their little princess.
She sure loved twirling in front of the camera...
...and the camera loved her back!
I wish everyone had a picture with their mother like this:
Love these shots!
These kids LOVE grapes! They snacked on them throughout the whole shoot : )
It rained on-and-off all afternoon, so we were a little disappointed about the lack of outdoor photo opportunities. However, the kids saved the day when they asked to splash in the puddles. As Dave said, this will likely always be referred to as Julia's "rain" dress : )
Memories to last forever. A picture is worth a thousand words...and sometimes a million.
