In the past year I keep going back to the same location to shoot. The wide open fields combined with hardly anyone else there provides this sense of freedom to relax, explore, play and be yourself. I feel like focusing more on connections rather than constantly looking for different backgrounds is really getting to the heart of family. And that is what feeds my soul: that spark of laughter and having fun together captured.
I have been photographing this little guy for a few years now. He is always so full of life and fun. I hope he always knows how loved he is and never loses his amazing spirit!
Having kids close together isn’t easy. I should know, mine are 13 months apart. I really didn’t know how life could seem any harder during the baby and toddler years. I felt like I was always on survival mode, and just really needed someone to throw me a life saver. Now that my kids are beyond the toddler stages, I hold an extreme special place in my heart for other parents who were like we were with toddlers very close in age. However, for this sweet family, they have 3 close in age, and my mind is completely blown! I don’t know how they do it, but however they are doing things, they are doing AMAZING! The boys were so full of life and fun, while the little sister, only 2 months old was the cutest and chillest baby ever. I loved our time together last weekend! Also, bonus that they brought Grandma along! Love when people want to include grandparents in the family photos! :-) Thinking about how cool it would have been if I had cool photos of me with my Grandfather when I was young always makes me excited for other people who think to do things like that.
Recently I did a photo session with my dear dear friend, Sylvia and her family, of Lifted Naturals.
As I sit here attempting to write a blog post about someone is who is an amazing writer, while I am not, is incredibly daunting. Nevertheless here goes.
This girl is completely amazing! I really cannot say enough awesome things about her.
Sylvia and I met about 8 years ago at a park when I was still living in Kansas City. We both had creative minds, toddler boys and baby girls. We instantly bonded! Obvs!
Sylvia is extremely creative, highly intelligent and very entrepreneurial. It was apparent that she had a gift as a Life Coach; her coaching seriously changed my life. Her ability to help people become the better versions of themselves is amazing.
Soon she started to realize the desire to help people on a bigger scale as she was learning of the links between gut health and anxiety. Naturally, she wanted to get to the root of the problem by working with a manufacturer to create a Mood Boosting Probiotic. Thus, Lifted was created. And I thought she had changed my life through coaching! I have never felt better and am way less anxious now that I take this awesome probiotic daily!
I am Sylvia’s number one fan! She continues to amaze me. I feel like she is a true pioneer, and that bigger things are in store for her.
