Love is patient, Love is kind.

This was my first time getting to photograph Caroline & Stuart's family, and I'm so glad I got to. What a loving family they are! Their children, Andrew & Emily, are as precious as can be, and um, can you say CUTE? Look at those smiles and brown eyes! 
I got to know Caroline a little bit last year when we were briefly in the same Bible study group. Her warm smile matches her kind heart.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from their shoot:

Ann & Tim's Family

I've been spoiled this fall, meeting and photographing so many wonderful new families. Ann & Tim have two handsome boys, and they are such a nice family. I had a great time photographing them all. Their son Max listened so well and is such a happy little guy, and Owen has a face that will melt your heart. Here are a few of my favorites...

Miss Maggie

This was my first time getting to photograph John & Jessica's sweet family and I loved meeting them and getting to shoot photos together for an hour! Little Maggie is at such a fun and busy age. She's not even two, but was such a fearless little climber and so smart! Doesn't she have such big brown pretty eyes? Here are a few of my favorites from their session...

Birthday Mama

We've known Aaron and Val a long time! Josh and Aaron went to college together, and Aaron was the best man in our wedding, and it was fun the first night we met Val because we could tell she was the one Aaron was going to marry! :) Then we had kids at the same time and have gotten to live near each other, and we've all gone gluten free and dairy free in the last few years... the friendship timeline goes on. :)

It was Val's birthday last week, and this session was one of her gifts from Aaron. Isn't that sweet?

I just had to start this post with these two shots of Lily! Cutie!
If you know Val... then you can hear this laugh! It's the best laugh! :)
And even though I do have the "straight-on-all-girls-smiling" shot of these three, I just thought these two lively shots were much more fun to post. :) Sisterhood.
Happy Birthday Val!

My Girl

I love this time of year! The beautiful fall leaves, the crispness in the air, and the joy of holidays just around the corner! There's something fun to look forward to each month! Selah and I have been getting into the holiday spirit with a little baking, crafts... and Christmas music! (Yes, my fall Christmas music addiction continues! I even find myself singing Away in a Manger & O Holy Night to Benjamin as I rock him each night.)

Today Selah was just looking so cute that I had to take some photos of her! I love this girl's joy, sweetness, thoughtfulness, & the hilarious things that come out of her mouth. Age 4 1/2 is beyond precious! I love you Selah-girl!

Fall Wonderland

I'm so thankful for the recent fall weather we've been having! It's so nice to have bright leaves and sunshine again, after that long rainy spell!! Speaking of bright and sunny, Kelly & Jon's girls are SO adorable and fun! I could have photographed them much longer than our brief time! My camera ate them up. :) They were all feeling a little under the weather, but you'd sure never know it looking at these. They did great! 

I remember photographing Ella when she was just a baby, and look at her now, such a great big sister! Here are a few of my favorites from their session:
I love how the colors you chose really pop, Kelly!
