Almost exactly three years ago I met these sweet girls for a portrait session. Here are a few of my favorites from our very first session…
And mom and I became good friends. Not really sure what drew us together but we have been friends ever since! If you watch our His Hands Photographs page on facebook, you are no stranger to these girls. See, when you are my friend… I try crazy ideas on your kids. I try to figure out ways to top myself. It may be a sickness really. This time the idea was mentioned about splashing around in the water. We talked about outfits and some how the idea of the girl’s handmade outfits should go into the creek! ha! If you know this mom she isn’t one to get dirty. God gave her girls (s0 far) for a reason. This session was totally not her usual self but she was up for it. She told me that after all these years she loves it when I talk her into something different and maybe a little crazy. I think this one tops them all!! We had a blast looking for tadpoles, floating the flowers down the creek, and eventually splashing mom!! Thank you for trusting me and for being a friend for three years now! Love your girls (and you aren’t too bad!)

Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him.
Children born to a young man
are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.
How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!
He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.
Psalm 127: 3 – 5
I spent the morning with this lovely family! I love big families!! They just welcomed baby #4 into the house just last week! The big boys were so helpful and big sister is adorable!! The brand new baby is just a doll!! I enjoyed talking with the family and learning more about them. I love that my job allows me to meet so many amazing families!!

Now for a super fun session! When I was talking to my neighbor about her next portrait session she has a great idea to have the boys splashing the creek in their rainboots!! So we did! But I also knew how much her boys love light sabers and star wars, I asked her if she was up for letting the boys have a battle! : ) I hope I captured these two boys at such a perfect age! Before we know it they will be too old for light saber battles… sniff sniff. Photoshop master Cory added the glow and the results were AWESOME!! May the force be with you!
