Capturing Your: Heart


They say that 3’s a charm. Well, in this case, 5 was our charm. It took us 5 times of rescheduling to finally get our session complete. Three times was due to weather, one due to a sunburn that caused the raccoon look and the 5th time because Chris decided to shave his goatee after having it for several years. So, after the weather cooperated, the sunburn healed and the goatee grew back, we finally met…and I’ll tell ya, it was definitely worth the wait! This was Heather and Chris’ first time doing pictures outside since their previous pictures were done in the studio! It can be a little nerve racking for both the family and photographer because it’s a different way to be photographed and to me as a photographer, I was afraid of not meeting their expectations. However, I think we can both agree that it was an awesome time that we were able to spend together, with TONS of laughs and really, Kaitlynn and David were the model children for taking pictures. They knew EXACTLY what to do for the perfect pose and I was in heaven….and shock…because it was so natural for them. It’s people like Chris and Heather who validate the love I have for photograph, to be engaged in their lives, who bring so much laughter and richness in my life, and make me want to continue to grow so that I can give them what they deserve and love their experience. Chris and Heather, thank you SO much for our time together. I have seriously been so blessed by so many families and Chris and Heather add to that joy. Despite all the obstacles we had to juggle to get to our session, it was so worth it because we couldn’t have had a better summer morning! Enjoy!

I LOVED all of David’s expressions! He definitely wasn’t interested in doing “tummy time” and after a few clicks and a few jokes, I was able to get him to smile for me!IMG_6373-copy IMG_6377-copy IMG_6379-copy IMG_6393-copy IMG_6399-copy IMG_6412-copy IMG_6430-copy-2 IMG_6475-copy IMG_6526-copy
