Sydney & Alison

I love watching life from behind my camera: bellies growing plump with life, moms and dads getting outnumbered by children, little tiny humans growing into their own personalities. Year after year, it always amazes me. That’s why I love documenting people over and over again. I last met with these sweet sisters two years ago. I remember their session well because it was sandwiched between four other sessions that day and theirs was by far the most energetic. And by energetic I mean my face hurt from smiling, I had grass stains on my knees and I really needed a snack. This year’s session was no different. They brought the jokes and giggles and high fives and hugs…all the good-for-the-soul kind of things. It was wonderful to see Sydney & Alison again and witness their individuality coming to life.

Newton Family

I met with the Newton Family  on a day with a forecast of 100% chance of rain. All day. When they arrived at my studio, the rain stopped and it didn’t come back until the very last set of shots! Yesss. There is so much love in the Newton Family…like a sunshine-followings-them-around kind of love. 🙂bsomeIMG_4414 bsomeIMG_4412 bsomeIMG_4423bsomeIMG_4422 bsomeIMG_4418bw bsomeIMG_4436 bsomeIMG_4439bsomeIMG_4441 bsomeIMG_4445 bsomeIMG_4457 bsomeIMG_4454bw bsomeIMG_4459bw bsomeIMG_4451 bsomeIMG_4449bw bsomeIMG_4464 bsomeIMG_4463bsomeIMG_4470bw bsomeIMG_4467 bsomeIMG_4472 bsomeIMG_4478 bsomeIMG_4479 bsomeIMG_4482 bsomeIMG_4474bsomeIMG_4491 bsomeIMG_4497 bsomeIMG_4507 bsomeIMG_4509 bsomeIMG_4519 bsomeIMG_4520 bsomeIMG_4529 bsomeIMG_4536 bsomeIMG_4541 bsomeIMG_4543 bsomeIMG_4548 bsomeIMG_4550 bsomeIMG_4556bw bsomeIMG_4569 bsomeIMG_4557 bsomeIMG_4576 bsomeIMG_4578

Hughes Sisters

Personality is an understatement. These girls are full of life and entertainment. I met with the Hughes Sisters at MOD Displays in Downtown, Harrisonburg. Why meet at an office? Well this office is owned by the girl’s parents and it offered the perfect space for a mini-session.  Lots of light. Lots of space. And perfectly stark to let little personalities bounce from wall to wall. When I arrived they were mid-coloring session but soon enough they were striking poses and showing me their human frog and dinosaur impressions. Oh what fun it is to be a kid! They invited me upstairs to “Daddy’s office” and gave me a crash course on how to run a business. From phone calls to keyboard…stuff to concentration faces to the max. At the end of the session they hopped back up to the table, grabbed their crayons and got back to work.

Sydney & Alison {mini}

It took all of about five clicks of my shutter for these two sisters to get used to me and my camera. As the session went on, they became more and more comfortable being their silly self in front of me. So many giggles echoing through the branches. What fun it was to watch their unique personalities shine through! bsomeIMG_9395 bsomeIMG_9398 bsomeIMG_9400bw bsomeIMG_9402 bsomeIMG_9404 bsomeIMG_9411 bsomeIMG_9413 bsomeIMG_9415bwbsomeIMG_9419 bsomeIMG_9424 bsomeIMG_9408 bsomeIMG_9426 bsomeIMG_9427bsomeIMG_9435bw bsomeIMG_9436 bsomeIMG_9428 bsomeIMG_9442 bsomeIMG_9446 bsomeIMG_9456bsomeIMG_9459c bsomeIMG_9461bw bsomeIMG_9464 bsomeIMG_9468bw bsomeIMG_9470 bsomeIMG_9471bw bsomeIMG_9466bsomeIMG_9477 bsomeIMG_9490 bsomeIMG_9492 bsomeIMG_9496bw bsomeIMG_9498bw bsomeIMG_9501bw bsomeIMG_9510bw bsomeIMG_9505 bsomeIMG_9507bw bsomeIMG_9512
