I was lucky enough to meet Erin 2 summers ago when her family moved back to Kentucky and I not only found a sweet family but a good friend. Brooks just loves Nora and even though I wish it could happen more often I still love when I’m in Kentucky and we are able to schedule a play date.
Mommy and me sessions hold a special place in my heart. All too often mamas are the ones taking the photos, which means they aren’t ever in the images. Not only are these precious memories of time with their little ones (who we all know don’t stay little for long!) but also memories for their children to cherish. How many of us wish we had more photos with our parents and grandparents? It is so important, even though most mamas are reluctant to get in front of the camera, for our kids to capture those cuddles and kisses.
My biggest challenge is saying no. I just can’t do it, especially when it involves capturing a sweet and beautiful family. The only time slot I had left on my most recent trip to Kentucky was sunrise just an hour before my family and friends were throwing me a baby shower. But when this family reached out to me the answer was YES-lets make it happen.
The fog was perfect and the kids were hilarious. They had more energy that I could even dream of if I had drank an entire pot of coffee. The icing on the cake was the fact that I went to school with Lindsay and her mother was one of my teachers in elementary school so this session not only let me have fun with the kids but also catch up with good friends. I love that sessions allow me to reconnect and pick up as if time has stood still.
When an adorable family invites you to their beautiful farm for a sunrise session the answer will always be YES! The morning couldn’t have been more perfect. Between the light and the laughs I had a blast working with the Muncy family. If you didn’t already know it Cheryl runs her own business-Newfangled Clothing CO. She makes the most adorable vintage inspired clothes for kids. You have got to check it out.
