April Showers Bring May Flowers {Mansfield, Ohio Child & Family Photographer}…

Of course my first sneak peak of 2014 must have a title reflecting this year’s weather.  We all know it’s been a crazy one that has affected so much… including this session.  Momma has the best idea.  She wants one session in each of the four seasons.  We have already done the fall session and had planned spring for this one.  And Momma most definitely wanted Kingwood Center.  One problem though was on our first scheduled date the flowers hadn’t really bloomed, since spring came so late.  So we rescheduled for last weekend… and the weather was absolutely gorgeous!!


And this session went so well that I am having the hardest time narrowing down their images…which is an awesome problem to have.


So here I have been almost every night this week thinking “I just have to keep this image too.” Yep, a great problem to have!!


I’ve learned when you have 4 kiddos, things are active.  This family was very active in our first session, keeping me on my toes.  I love that. I love capturing moments that might seem a bit crazy at the time… but those are the moments that capture the essence of each individual family.  This family was no different.  I just loved them. They were funny, sweet and, most importantly, real!! I felt like I was getting to see them in their element… and it was just plain awesome because then I was able to catch moments like these…



{PS… the sweet little girl in blue… well, she had spent part of the day in the ER for a fall, including hurting her knee… so I just could not bring myself to take that band aid out of the photo… it screams perfection for the moment to me!}


For our first session, we went to Momma and Dad’s wedding reception location.  For this session, they wanted to recreate a photo from their wedding day, but now including their kids…


Thank you to you all… I truly adore each and every one of you.  Thank you for allowing your kiddos to be themselves.  Thank you for trusting my judgment when I was saying “it’s all good, let them be.”  Thank you for being flexible with planning the date.  Thank you for your idea of a session in each season… I’m flattered and honored you are choosing me to capture these times in your lives.  I love working with you all and can’t wait to do it again!!




Please check your inbox in a few days for the slideshow of all your images!! I’ll figure out a way to narrow them down…hopefully :).
