no better joy.

You might remember this session (click here) from the fall.  I absolutely adored everything about it… perfect weather, perfect clothes, perfect kids (and by that I mean kids who are funny, and silly, and crazy, and goofy, and are KIDS.  I would be absolutely terrified if they were “perfect” in the traditional sense of the word, and I would have no idea what to do with them!), perfect family (and by that I mean a family who LOVES each other, LOVES life, LOVES spending time together.  Knowing that “perfection” is impossible… I mean “perfect” by a family who is so comfortable by being themselves, that they are not afraid to show who they really are!).    I guess what I am saying, in a very long-winded sort of way, is that this session will most definitely go down as one of my favs of all time.   And I am realizing how many images I still have not shared… so, here are just a few (ha!) of my favs.  Enjoy!

When I say “just a few,” I’m obviously kidding, because those of you who follow my blog know I am incapable of narrowing down these images.  Soooo, here are “just a few” more.  😉

thinking back.

Thinking back to last fall… a most amazing session in a simply incredible location.   But, what made this session so truly perfect was the people in it.  I love this family and miss them so much.   I sure am thankful to have such a beautiful place to visit them in, but I really wish we could be neighbors again!

And a few more… just for fun!

the best.

I’m a sucker for a really good ego boost… who isn’t, right?  And getting one of the most amazing compliments on my work, like this:  “You are the best! We love you so much!!! You are amazing and have such a gift. You literally capture our best things in life… Those moments. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Can’t wait to see the rest!!!” might have motivated me juuuuuust a little bit to share a few more sneak peek images from my session today.

Being an aunt to these 2 beautiful little people might have motivated me too.  I love this family.  I love their love, the way they love each other, and they way they love their babies.  I am so lucky to be a part of their lives and I can only hope that these images show just a fraction of love they have for each other.
