Recognize this picture? You should! It's the cover photo of Red's webpage! This is Sophie Elizabeth. Sweet Sophie is just over a year old and is such a precious girl! This session in particular was special to me because Sophie's mom, Nicole, and I are longtime friends. We met in high school while singing in choir together and now 14 years later we're both married with children of our own.
Nicole was always a phenomenal soprano with a firm foundation in Christ and she was lucky enough to find the guy of her dreams with the same upbringing :) I've gotten to know Glenn a bit over the last few years and can see just how perfect of a match these two are!
Did I mention Nicole is expecting her second little girl in the next couple of months? And, like most pregnant women she was not too thrilled about taking pictures on this day but like a good friend, she put on her lipstick and smiled for the camera :) And, look at how beautiful and glowing she is! I just love these mommy and baby photos!
My favorite thing about this session was that it was so relaxed. As in, we walked out to Nicole and Glenn's backyard and took pictures for roughly 30 minutes. And of course, as luck would have it the most casual, chill, laid back session produced some of my best images yet....I mean, just look at these photos...
I love capturing images like these and it's extra special to me when it's someone so dear to my heart. Congratulations Nicole and Glenn on your beautiful family and on the newest addition to come!
