When Nicole asked me to photograph her beautiful children, I was so excited. I love capturing the connections within families and when I get the chance to capture another adoptive family, I am over the moon. I loved every minute of our time together this evening. They had traveled many miles over the course of a few days and were still playful, full of energy and all had sweet smiles. It was so nice to see the various types of roles and connections these siblings held; the quiet mothering nature of the oldest sister, the fun-playful, caring role of the older brother, the mighty little sister who could pretty much take on the world with her cutie dimples and the adorable baby brother who has each and every one of them head over heels for him. What a pleasure it was to capture these moments between the four of them.
Then I couldn’t resist capturing a few photos with their amazing Mama, Nicole. A loving child of God, protector of our country and beautiful wife (just to name a few characteristics of her amazing-ness). She had just finished up a day of working on base before this session. I was so thrilled that she agreed to sit in on a few shots and get on the other side of the camera for a bit (Moms, we all need to do this!).
Thank you for letting me capture all this beauty, Nicole. I loved talking together about our adoption hearts. Your family is incredible.
Come along, let’s dream together…
