A starting place! |Chandler Family Photographer

Sunday, October 25, 2009

Tonight was a VERY anticipated family session. Why? Well, it has been a year and a half since I last met up with a family that I cherish and hold very dear to my heart. AND, not to mention it was scheduled 2 months prior.

I first met this darling family almost 3 years ago...back when...when I was just starting this venture. When I first met them, my affection for them grew instantly. Our first session together was to celebrate Miss K turning two. And here she is today, just a few months from being 5. {sniff sniff}

And here I am, happy that I continue to document not only their lives but their love. Because, honestly, this family is ALL heart. They have a beautiful story, a story of their own and a story they graciously share with those that hear. It's a story of blessings, thankfulness, appreciation and happiness that radiats through their words and smiles. They are the family that I literally have to pry myself away from.

Yes, it's a family that fills my eyes with tears from their beautiful love. And, what made me giggle on my way home from the session, was remembering the mommy of this gorgeous family telling me not to cry. But, honestly...I can't help it. {reference emotional photographer} They are beautiful and they are awe inspiring to those around them.

Meet Miss K...where it all began.
And her beautiful little sister Miss C.
With just a glimpse of their love.

Today's session was filled with my "addiction" issues. Almost embarrassing...I truly missed my assistant on this shoot, as I needed her to calmly hold my hand while telling me...."walk away from the children." I.COULD.NOT.STOP. COULD.NOT!

Now, can you see why....oh, I just love these little girls.

Tonight...I'm exhausted! Yesterday I had one of the best evenings in a long time. Now, what could it have been you might ask? My girlfriend's youngest sister was married and I joined in the celebration with my closest friends from high school. It was an evening filled with oodles of dancing...like from start to end...lots of giggling and catching up. Needless to say, aside from needing it for my mental status...it was a wonderful girl's night for an amazing girl. Now, tonight....I am one tired mommy and will be in bed in just a few minutes. Yep...the earth must be shattering, I'm going to bed before midnight...it's a shocker I tell ya but I can't wait.

I hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend...because I sure did. Thank you to my girlfriend's...

I got to see pictures of your girls night out on FB. I have to say it brought tears to my eyes....I just LOVE that you are all still such great friends and in each others lives. Don't you just love that....so comforting to have girlfriends that have known you since way back...you don't have to tell them your story...they already know. :) You are blessed in so many ways...but you already know that!
