I have this really bad habit of not picking up my camera unless I'm working. I'm trying to be better about taking my camera places and photographing my life. These are some photos I took of my foster kiddos playing outside. This was the Fourth of July and it's making me miss shorts, tan lines and the sun!
This was my first time ever shooting a birth announcement. I can't believe it!
So a little back story. I met Chelsy when she was a model in Portland maybe 6 years ago? jezz maybe even 7 years now? She was one of the first models I tested with. I started shooting her for book updates, jewelry lines, then her and Dariens wedding, followed up with her bridal boudoir photos and now this. I think over time I have photographed her face over 15 times! Anyway, I thought I was showing up to photogrpah some cute Christmas Card photos but they surprised me! They are pregnant!!!! You guys, I cried! Watching this young woman grow has been so beautiful. Chelsy and Darien are so fun and loving, I am so happy for their blessing and can not wait for them to be parents.
When I get to photograph families like the Alberti's it makes my heart full. Casey and Anthony have children from previous relationships and a child together. They are so centered as a couple and a family. I love seeing parents support each other and come together for the good of children. These four kiddos have a lot of love and joy around them because of the choices these parents have made. Congrats on the beautiful family! see ya next year for another round of holiday photos!
