There is just nothing like a beautiful picture of someone you love. Nothing.
Are there photos from your wedding that you just adore? Photos that you stare at over and over wondering how on earth the Lord blessed you so incredibly with the one that you married? It's amazing how photos from our wedding can bring back such vivid joyous memories. There is just nothing like a beautiful picture of someone you love. Nothing.
Do you have a favorite first picture of you and your first child? Isn't it strange how a picture can make you remember certain smells, sounds, and physical touches? I have a photo of my firstborn and me in the hospital room that makes me cry EVERY single time I look at it. This was the first life to look into my eyes that was my very own. The first one to cry out for me to feed her. The first one to call me mommy. My first child who ever told me she loved me. There is just nothing like a beautiful picture of someone you love. Nothing.
Photos of first birthdays, second, thirds and so on. Pictures of family and friends gathered in celebration of life...laughing, plates-full-of- food in hand, happy, joy-filled pictures. There is just nothing like a picture of someone you love. Nothing.
I know some precious friends have lost babies...and the photos they have of their precious little one are worth more than most anything. Proving that this child was here, alive, real, smiling, crying, laughing, breathing...There is just nothing like a beautiful picture of someone you love. Nothing.
Well, let me share with you a little bit about a sweet friend of mine.
She is beautiful. She is a daughter, wife, mommy and friend. Her precious Dani has is one of my son's oldest friends...and we just adore her. Her second blessing is a sweet as honey and as cute as a button. We love this family. Tons.
Dawn has become one of my favorite photographers. I love looking at her site because I know her heart. I know that she is not just shooting pics for some cash. She is doing something she truly loves. She knows that there is just nothing like a beautiful picture of someone you love. Nothing.
Dawn graciously came over a couple of days ago and shared with me photos she had taken of our family. I loved them all. Truly loved them all. Even the goofy what-in-the-world-was-he-thinking pictures of our sweet Ben. He is a character, and Dawn caught it on camera. I love it because I never want to forget the crazy joy this child brings to our family. I love it because Dawn doesn't either. Dawn let Emma choose her own poses...and they are beautiful. Capturing innocence and beauty from an 8 year old girl. Jacob climbing up a tree and positioning himself in a most dangerous place, yelling "Get this one, Ms. Dawn!" She did. Priceless.
The photo at the top of this page is one of my favorite photos ever of our three blessings. I could seriously stare at this picture all day. I think I may have actually done this once or twice;) I mean, look at those faces! There is just nothing like a beautiful picture of someone you love. Nothing.
I would love for you to check out her site. Our family photos are not up yet, but you will find shots of our very own Ben:)
If you are in the area, I encourage you to book her for your next photo session. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
