I had the privilege of photographing this young family just a few short days before they headed off to the mission field in Africa. Baby girl got to experience one of her last cold days for a while. Please be in prayer for this young couple as they spend time serving in this area of political unrest.
Fall sessions with return clients who have become friends are one of the reasons that I have chosen to be a photographer. Anyone can take pictures of a lot of people. But if those people don’t come back to you, you must be doing something wrong. I want images that not only showcase my talent, but that tell a family’s story.
I know that most parents want every picture of their child smiling and behaving, but my favorite shots every time are the ones where the child lets down their guard and is comfortable enough with me to NOT smile. That’s when I know I’ve won them over. And those images, to me, are the most priceless.
In 2015 we started going to Junkstock, just my girls and me. For her birthday, Bekah wanted me to drive to Omaha and spend the weekend with her and E.Beth and to go to Junkstock. Well, that was a no-brainer! So now it has become our little tradition. Year three complete with hopefully many more to come. I wouldn’t trade this time with them for anything in the world.
This year was just a “tad” on the muddy side. But not to worry, we came prepared with rain boots and umbrellas. Thankfully, we didn’t need the umbrellas. Unfortunately, we had to carry them around the entire day. Oh well.
