This was my second year to photograph this wonderful family and I was so excited to have them back. My photographer friends will know what I mean when I say that shooting them seems more like just hanging out with friends than actually working.
When I sent Mom the link to her gallery and asked her to send me a list of some faves for her Christmas card this was the email I got back.
"Oh, Heather! What can I say? I have SO MANY favorites that I’m sending you a list of most all of them. Because of that I think you should have free reign on whatever you think for the xmas card. Here are just some of my favorites." Following a list of like twenty images she went on to say, "As you can see I liked it all…I really don’t know how you do what you do – you capture my kids how I always want to remember them – thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Thank YOU, Cisley, for allowing me to do what I truly love. And just for the record, were you TRYING to make me cry? Because that’s MY job. )
Now, meet my little buddies, Caroline and Joe. Aren’t they beautiful!
We found this note floating around in the alley where we were shooting and I just couldn’t pass it up.
Then we found a little lady bug who wanted to hang out with us. These are some of my favorites from the whole session. I love how delicate Caroline is and how curious Joe is.
