I have been wanting to blog this session ever since the day I shot it!
Kristen babysat my brother and I when we were little. Some of my favorite memories with her are going to the Country Club (one of my current places of employment, I know, I'm crazy) to go swimming, her telling me I needed to finish my *daily reading* before I could play, and of course, LEGOS.
Now, she has 3 beautiful children of her own and I was so honored to be able to capture some special memories for them.
Let me just tell you a little about these kiddos. The oldest is Ellasyn (Ella) and she was definitely the quietest of the three. She took direction *so* well and was a great listener and sets a great example for her younger siblings. The middle child is Abigail (Abby) and her personality coined her a little nickname from her mom. Betty. As in Betty White. As in, this child is wild, funny, and unpredictable. She made every face imaginable at me and to actually get her to "smile nice" was a bit of a challenge... but that's ok, I like a challenge! The last child, the baby of the family, is Elijah (Eli). What. A. Hoot. This kid. Seriously. He had me in tears I was laughing so hard. He also adores his mama and that was so evident in many of these images.
The love that envelopes this family is undeniable. I had so much fun working with them and catching up with Kristen. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I do!
