Dimples are my Weakness

This handsome little guy and his dimples!   Add to this, some blue eyes, and yep, I was a goner!  I had the honor of photographing this gorgeous family last fall and I couldn’t get enough of this cutie.   Who can resist a wink?   😉

Wildflowers & Love

Where to begin to describe this session?   It seemed like from the beginning that this session was going to be a little challenging.   The wind was blowing like crazy that morning (not good for long hair) and despite being April, it was also quite cold (not so great with a sleeveless dress).  AND to top it all off, even though we got up super early, before sunrise so that we could get those buttery warm, soft lit photos, it was DARK!  Like “a storm is coming” type dark.   Despite it all, nothing could snuff out the light and love that radiated from these two.   We had so much fun in those flowers that morning!   Hey, jump on your fiancé’s back for a piggy back ride!  Done!  How about running and jumping up into your fiancé’s arms?  Done!  Ok, scoop your soon-to-be wife up in both arms.  Done!  Now swing her around in a circle.  (so I really did ask for him to do this thinking he would look at me like I was crazy)  As you can see from the photos below, he did as requested, and it had us all laughing hysterically!

Cheerful Newborn

I love how this momma wanted more cheerful colors for her newborn baby girl’s session.   For being a little bit older newborn, over 3 weeks old, she did an amazing job sleeping through out the entire session until at the end she opened up her bright eyes and gave us a little smile.

Beautiful family, beautiful sunset

Another fabulous Fall mini session showcased today on the blog.  Slow but surely, I will get caught up on showing off all the amazing Rae of Light families that I had the opportunity to photograph at the end of 2017.   Psst… btw, this is another spectacular teacher that I have the opportunity to work with at Teravista Elementary as well.   She is so dedicated to her 5th grade students and I am proud to be working along side her.    Aren’t her children adorable?   My favorite moment is when lil’ sister bear hugs his big brother. I thought she was going to lift him right off the ground!



Wild Thing, I Think I Love Ya

He was the cutest lil’ wild thing too!  I loved what Mom picked out for her session in 2015,  and this past Fall’s session in 2016 (yea, yea, I am WAY behind in blogging) was another great choice in outfits.   I am super lucky to work with this wonderful teacher at Teravista Elementary and feel blessed to watch her son grow up.   So here ya go…. lots of photos from this fun little mini session and hopefully I’ll be getting a little more caught up.
