I Heart Faces: A Touch of Whimsy

Whimsy?  I think pastels, gorgeous lighting, romance... something out of a fairy tale where a knight sweeps a beautiful damsel off her feet...


This photo was it.  Perfectly beautiful, romantic... .Hhunky knight?  Check.  Gorgeous damsel?  Check. 


Y'all, I'm not kidding, this image makes my husband go all fluttery.  He said it makes him fall in love with me all over again to look at this couple being so obviously in love.

Well, shoot, my job is done.

Benson Sneak Peek!

I am a total sucker for a cute kiddo.  They're like my kryptonite.  (I think I needed that programmed into my DNA to make  having four kids possible.  It's the only way they survive some days!)

Which made this shoot so SO much fun!  Little Miss was a wee bit shy so it took me dropping all my "professional" hats and going full-on goofball to get her to crack a smile and feel at-ease.  And thank goodness for sweet kids that make us act like children ourselves!  She made me play hide-and-seek with her and she made me chase her through sunny fields and get down on the damp grass and laugh at absurd ducks.  She invented games with pine cones and showed me her "Princess Smile" at long last. 

Making it all the more perfect? My son adores her and her mom is a wonderful person with whom I'd love to spend more time because I think there's the potential for a pretty awesome friendship.

Have I mentioned how much I love my job?  How much I love popping that SD card in and opening up the images and laughing and smiling and remembering how much fun I had at the session?  How much I love zooming in on these kiddos' amazing eyes and marveling at how absolutely perfect God's creation is?  How much I love delivering the finished, polished images and hearing that my clients love the result because I know they'll treasure those photos forever?
