I know the Welch family through one of my favorite Aunts, but it had been years since I had seen them (and I was new to meeting the little ones!) I knew immediately that I was going to love our session together for so many reasons! Marilee (mom) is absolutely stunning – her ridiculously beautiful smile, her freckles and her warm personality drew me in with every photo I took. She is so loving with the kids and she radiates such good energy! Paul (dad) is tall, handsome and is such a great dad- he was a great sport with anything I suggested and he helped keep the kids interested throughout the shoot! I also loved that Grandma and Grandpa came to help with outfit changes and to motion to the kids behind me! (yay awesome assistants!) Kye (big brother) and Peyton (little sister) are so friggen adorable – what else can I say? Kye, like any growing boy went through spurts of loving the camera, to helping me pick out photo spots, to being more interested in making funny faces than posing seriously! He is so full of zest, and is going to grow up to be quite the little heart breaker! Peyton is like a little Snow White baby! Her beautiful complexion, her calm and concentrated demeanor and her big dark eyes make you melt when you look at her – sorry mom and dad, you’re going to have to keep a close eye on this little beauty! What a fun day, spent with such a gorgeous family – we couldn’t have asked for a better Fall day for our session! I hope you cherish our fun day together, and I can’t wait to watch the little ones grow up! xo
Ahhhh, I love this one of Kye & Peyton!!!
This beautiful lady and I went to high school together, and although we’ve been friends through facebook during the gap from high school til now, I hadn’t actually seen her in years! When she contacted me to photograph her unbelievably adorable family (with baby #3 on the way), I was so excited to see her and meet her husband and 2 cute little girls! Living in Barriere growing up definitely had it’s disadvantages with the lack of fun things to do after school or on weekends, but the one quality it did have, is the incredible, lush, backyard property that most of our family houses all featured. Mokki’s parent’s house is phenomenal: situated on top of a bank where you can hear the river below, the greenest grass and more trees than you can imagine all at the end of a windy, idyllic dirt road. It was a magical day for photos and we were lucky to have just missed the rain for this session! I can honestly say that I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such beautiful, adorable, loving, girly little girls! Freja and Hazel were little sunbeams who both had so much personality and charisma – I could have hung out with them all day taking their photo (mom and dad are definitely in for some trouble when these girls grow up!). You can see where they get their charm and good looks from though – Mokki radiates positivity, youthfulness and beauty and Rease is so calm, rugged, manly and has such a calm, loving demeanor. I wish they all lived closer so I could watch their family grow, and so that I could meet cute little baby number 3 when he or she arrives! Loved our day together! xo
