The Lanes. One of my very favorite families. Fun-loving, easy going, and up for anything. I've been photographing this family for a couple of years now and I always joke that they're one of my VIP Families because I've gotten to know them so well through their regular sessions. Getting to know my clients on a friend-level is one of my favorite things about this amazing little thing I call a "job". Not only do I love making new friends, but it really makes the photos come naturally since everyone is more comfortable.

For this session, we chose the Vicksburg Train Station since Mason is 3 1/2 and all boy. He loved the old tractors, trains, and ample space to run. And really, location, along with keeping session lengths within reason are the key to a successful family shoot. About a half hour into the shoot, I knew I had exactly the shots I was looking for, but I kept my camera out and ready because I knew I'd miss something great if I didn't. And sure enough, all of the shots of Brendan holding Madi were taken right before we left.

Three beautiful children. And their story is one of hope. For several years, my sister and brother-in-law struggled to start their family. They went on to foster, and then adopt their oldest two, Alli & Grant. As soon as their adoption was finalized, they found out they were pregnant with Emma, who turned one last month. Talk about a perfect, happy ending and a gorgeous family -- God truly has the most perfect timing. IMG_0190-1 IMG_9979-4 IMG_9946-3 IMG_9920-2 IMG_9914-1

  Blog-9265 Blog-9239 Blog-9237 Blog-9072This was my second time photographing the beautiful Selma and her family. It's always great getting to know little ones and their families, and seeing them grow with each session. This shoot was to celebrate Selma's upcoming first birthday, and I loved watching her with her parents - so much love, so real.
