I was contacted, months ago, to do custom portraits for an old friend of mine, Emily, who has moved away, gotten married, and started a family. This session was supposed to take place in August, but due to inclement weather, their flight was canceled, and I feared that we would not get a chance to do her session. Lucky for me, they were able to make a trip, all the way from Texas, to complete the session that we had been planning for so long.
As a special perk, I had the pleasure of photographing Emily's niece together with her daughter. They are close in age, and oh so cute. I got to meet her niece, Emma, first, and she is not only sweet, but she has got some rockin' dance moves. She can really shake it. I loved watching her bust a move to Tina Turner. The girl has good taste. :)
Soon after meeting Emma, Emily arrived and I got to meet her husband Mark and her sweet baby, Mae, for the first time. Mae is even cuter in person than she is in her photos........which is hard to do, since she is so adorable in her pictures. She has the funniest "toothy" grin. At least, it's as toothy as it gets when you just have one little tooth poking through. lol. Mae is also blessed with the most gorgeous blue eyes. They are simply mesmerizing.
Both girls did an awesome job, and I had so much fun working with them. And I was also glad that I got the opportunity to photograph Emily's family along with her mom and her brother and his family. I am thankful for Emily's mom, Laura, who welcomed me into her home, and allowed us to use it for the portrait session. I feel blessed and honored to have been chosen to capture three generations of a family that continues to grow. I would like to send well wishes to Emily's brother Jason, and his family, who are expecting a new baby very soon. I know that Emma will be a fantastic big sister.
Emily, I am flattered that you picked me to do your family portraits, and that you were willing to travel so far. I really had a lot of fun. It was so great to see you again, and to meet your family. :)
This rocking chair has sentimental value to Emily's mom, and I was happy to include something personal and special in their images.
U of M fans forever! :)
