My sweet friend, Christina, invited us over for a playdate with her 3 kiddos, who are just a hair over 2 years old. It’s been so fun watching her loin fruits grow over the past 2 years. I can’t believe it’s been so long since I shot their first birthday party! Christina and I used to work together at Switch before we each became mommies. She is a very talented graphic designer and now recently a photographer! She’s a constant encourager, motivator, and challenger creatively to me, as well as, a model of a good mom. She also made this beautiful print for Brady’s room (see below). Here are some fun photos I was able to snap between all the running around and kid-wrangling.
(This one is my favorite. O just picked up an empty milk jug and was “drinking from it” walking around the house. Already prepping for the “gallon challenge”.)
Last week I photographed a lovely family near White Rock Lake. This is actually a dear friend of mine with her family. Gosh, I can’t get enough of her adorable kiddos. Just look at them! And isn’t Amanda just beautiful? Killer bone structure . Anyway, they were a lot of fun to photograph. Here are some of my favorites. The light was amazing and the weather was perfect.
Meet beautiful little Cameron, and her big brother Elliot. Let me start off by saying this is one of my favorite families and I was SO excited to photograph them. Elliot reminds me a lot of myself when I was little. Emily and Clay are so laid back and I love watching their family dynamic. We giggled at Elliot throughout the shoot and awed at little miss Cameron, while their two big labs barked in the background because they too wanted to be included.
Cameron has such a special story already. Just as any newborn is a miracle, Cameron is a special miracle. Clay and Emily knew before she was born that she would need special medical treatment for her heart. Just 7 days after she was born she had open heart surgery. It is evident that Emily and Clay have really pressed into the Lord and leaned on him through all of this. Even though the doctors have told them one thing, they are trusting in the Lord for a different path. It’s so comforting to see just how big their faith is; what a testament to the Lord’s amazing grace. I truly believe that the Lord has His hand in this and has already performed several miracles and I have faith that He can bless them with many more. Cameron is safe at home with her family and doing very well. She is such a good baby and was so sweet during our time together.
