I love it when, during a session, a family mentions that they haven’t had family pictures taken in years. I know that kind of sounds terrible…but it just makes me pretty excited. In just a few days, I’ll be delivering them a gallery full of pictures of their family that will forever document this specific season of life. The best thing about photography is its ability to freeze time for a moment; to give you the ability to look back on certain seasons of life once they’ve passed.
What started out as an anniversary session for Margaret + Jay didn’t stay that way for long. A few minutes before we started taking pictures, Margaret casually mentioned that it had been years since they’ve had family pictures taken together. Then she also casually mentioned that SHE’S PREGNANT! and due in October! This season of their family – with just two children! – was going to come to an end in just a few months. Although little Shawn and Emma didn’t show up dressed for pictures, I knew we had to get a couple of shots with them.
This family is WONDERFUL. And if you know them at all, you know all of the heart and time they pour in to ministry at Lifehouse Church. It was such a treat to photograph them and have the opportunity to bless them with some beautiful images to celebrate this season. Enjoy a few favorites!
