I have been photographing Madison since she was a baby! It’s fun to see how much she has grown up over the years. Maddy’s mom Kristen and I go way back… we’re cousins 🙂

And may I introduce Maddy’s equally adorable little sister, Presley:

This was my favorite from the session, and one of our very last images. The girls were almost ready to call it a day, but when I spotted this hill with the sun setting behind it, I just knew the shot I had to capture. Luckily Chris, Kristen and the girls were such good sports (I’m sure it had nothing to do with the M&M’s I was promising them after the session).

For young families, I always like to do a mix of a few semi-traditional ‘posed’ pictures, and then some fun, active, candid photos of the kids just being themselves. It helps to let kids run off a little steam in between having to stand still for a quick minute.

Madison and Presley have the bluest of blue eyes you have ever seen (from their mom). And I am very jealous of Presley’s gorgeous curls too (from dad)!

The setting sun makes such amazing long shadows.

We finished off our session by standing on a fence and yelling at goats. Isn’t there a movie about that? 😉

It’s always fun photographing family and friends, even more so when I get to look back and see how much has changed and how much the kids have grown, as my photography has grown right along with them. Kristen has always been so supportive of my work and was very sweet letting her little girl be one of my guinea pigs when I was just starting out in 2006. Thank you!

    I have only been shooting semi-professional alittle over a year, but I find the camera loves blues eyes and captures them so beautifully.

    And Presley's curls…her blonde hair…can you say "GAP BABY"

    Great shots!
