My Lovely Assistant

I don’t know why, but when Christy asked me to do this session for her, I freaked out just a little bit inside.  It’s not that I was worried that I wouldn’t get great pictures….I mean, her kids are gorgeous.  I don’t know…there was something about it that just made me more nervous that I usually am (and yes, I do get butterflies just a little before every single shoot…even after 5 years!).  I mean, she sees my pictures (hundreds of them!) on a day to day basis, she knows how I shoot, she knows all of my kid “tricks”….she knows what I am capable of doing!  But what if I was off (as if!)??   She’d be the first to know!  And then I’d have to see her every day!  🙂  It was silly….whatever that nervous feeling was.  But thankfully, I overcame, and I got what think are some of my favorite pictures yet.  I know that there are a ton of them.  I told her on the day of the session that I was REALLY going to edit her pictures down to just a few…well, that didn’t happen.  Here are just a FEW of them (and I mean a VERY few compared to what I’m showing her!).

  • ChristyI knew you would ROCK this one Heather! Of course all of your work is amazing, but I am so grateful to you for capturing who my babies really are…and in such a beautiful way! These are definitely some of my favorite shots you’ve done as well! Of course they are my kids…but I just loved the whole spirit of this session =) They had so much fun and so did I! When is the next one?! (lol)
    Many thanks, hugs and kisses!!!

  • KatherineThose are beautiful photos of some very cute kids! Christy, if you don’t mind me asking, where did you get your little girl’s dresses? They are both beautiful! (BTW, I came here to see the photos of Caleb and Ethan and looked around a bit while I was here.)

  • adminHey Katherine – I’ll answer for Christy because I know the answer! 🙂 The dresses are from Matilda Jane. We do a Matilda Jane trunk show in the studio a couple of times a year! Would love for you to join us next time….probably sometime last summer/early fall!
    And thanks for the sweet compliments! It’s hard to take a bad photo of those kiddos!

  • KatherineThank you! I live in Kansas City, but believe me, every winter I wish I lived further south!
