Photography is my outlet for self-expression, but it also opens the doors for new friendships to form.
I have known this sweet family from our church for awhile. But during our session, I got to know them on a deeper level. Between shots, we talked about the weather (it was HOT!) how tough and rewarding parenting is, our jobs, our lives. I want to remain friends long after the photos are taken.
It was a blessing to see such a young family committed to the Lord and each other. Their children are stunning.....obviously.
But to see how loving and patient they are with their babies, just made my heart sing. We are all so worried about the "next generation"...but with young people like this, I think we will be just fine.
Mother Teresa said, "Want to promote world peace? Go home and love your own family".
That being said, there is a point in the session, where things naturally start to come to a close. Usually, I start to lose the kids and they give me this face...."Miss Nikki, we are DONE!" LOL!
But he had nothing on his baby sister, who straight up told me, "Yep,..... I'm out!" Haha!
It was such a fun day. And I am humbled they allowed me to capture this time in their lives.
Little of this and that
Session sneak peaks, family stuff, photography favorites and finds and once in awhile I will go off on a political rant...... Just kidding!
