there is you,
and I’m not
sure there is
a difference” – a.r. asher
This year has been such a whirlwind for me. I have been the busiest I have ever been and while I am so grateful, it also has left very little time for blogging sessions. This little section of my website has been sadly neglected this year. The one upside to being behind though is getting to relive sessions again that I haven’t seen for a few months and remembering all the fun moments for that night, and this session is no exception.
The Kidder Family Session was part of my special Wildflower sessions, which are some of my favorite sessions of the year. Every week there is a “peak week” where the wildflowers bloom at my favorite location and it is absolutely gorgeous. The wildflowers show off for about a week or two and then quickly die off, making these sessions extra special. This year especially I felt they really put on a show with lots of gorgeous vibrant colors that went on for miles.
This family did not have the easiest start to parenthood. With quite a few unforeseen complications that resulted in them unable to get newborn pictures done and their third wedding anniversary on the horizon, they wanted pictures to document this part of their family journey. I love, love, love the connection and movement in these images. The happy playful moments, the sweet snuggly moments, and lots of dancing and twirling among the wildflowers. We went back and forth about rescheduling this session because the forecast was not looking good, but we somehow managed to squeeze it in between rainstorms. I absolutely love the dark, dramatic skies it added as a result. And how beautiful is that vintage quilt? I wish I could claim it as one of mine, but the Kidders brought it with them as it was a handmade gift from her Aunt. I love sentimental touches like that!
These three brought the best energy, and a certain little miss who is the happiest baby ever with her gorgeous eyes and sweet smile that definitely stole my heart. This session reminded me of how blessed I am to call this my job and that what I do matters. Enjoy!
