As a Wildwood Missouri family photographer I always get to meet the best people.  This family is filled with some of the most special people in the world to me. (Besides my own little family of course!) They are an answered prayer in more ways than I could ever express.  My family and I treasure them so much.  I vividly remember the day I met this amazing family. We were visiting a new church, we had just moved to a new place, we didn’t know ANYONE, and they sweetly invited us into their home.  Their middle son J took to me right away and we just had the sweetest time. Since then I have grown to love each of them-more than I ever imagined I could. Sweet P, their baby girl just recently learned to say my name and it is pretty much the coolest thing since holding her after she was born.  So needless to say taking their family portraits was a BIG deal for me, and I was secretly pretty nervous. As a wedding and senior portrait photographer I don’t often get the blessing of working with families-because my schedule is so busy already! (God is good!).  This family of six was fantastic to work with. As you can imagine the children loved exploring and playing, but that is what family photography is all about. We had so many giggles during our session, I was worn out!

Wedding photographers need family pictures too and since we are such great friends with this family I passed my camera over quickly, (after setting it up and posing my own crew) and we grabbed a quick family photo too. I then shot just a few of my own daughter. Isn’t she getting big!!!??? She is stunning right?! That handsome guy is my hubby. We have a pretty cute family, if I do say so myself – but I am biased.
