If you follow the blog you know Ive been photographing this adorable little family for a while now. I had to get them out in the AMAZING leaves here in Washington a few months ago. We picked the perfect day to go too.
A while back I was searching for a photographer for Jacks one year photos. There is something I’m finding very common among photographers all over. Vintagey, sunny, pastel photos and that just isnt my thing. I mean, it works sometimes. But I really like to show images how they really are, in real life you know? Anyway, Casey Ray of Phreckle face Photographyin San Antonio emailed me asking if I wanted to do a family session trade and I was thrilled. Finally, someone who loves color as much as I do. I was just sad she wasnt coming any sooner than July. She’s a super trooper and already got my session she shot up on her blog already.
Go check it out. :)
I would like to introduce you to my family. There are a lot of them. My mom was in the middle of 6 girls. GIRLS ALL GIRLS! My Aunt Carol was born a few years after my mom. These are of her GIRLS and their families! (I tell ya I was honestly shocked to have a boy!)Thanks to Amie for taking the shots of myself and Jack
I am a volunteer for Red Thread Sessions. RTS is a group that photographs newly adopted children and their families. What a great idea right?! Dominique emailed me a few months ago with interest for me to photograph her new family once she brings her son, Jackendy home from Haiti. She and her daughter, Kaeli traveled over in April to bring him home. She adopted Kaeli from China almost 7 years ago. Dominique studied in China and her sister in law is half Haitian. She wanted to have roots to them both. Kaeli and Jackendy seem like best buds already. She says her favorite thing do to do him is swing him around. However, I think its eating goldfish together.
If you know someone who has or is planning to adopt a new family member I would love to photograph you or that someone that you know. :)
