I really have no excuse as to why it took me so long to put these on the blog other than life has been busy I guess! First off, what a fun group to do a shoot with! They were such troopers considering it rain the WHOLE time. And look how lovely they all looked in their coordinated colors adding to the already awesome fall feel. Here’s a few of the shots I picked out to share with you all! 🙂
I had such a good time taking pics for Chris and Cali yesterday. Not only because I really enjoy taking pictures (and clearly they’re both very photogenic so it makes my job easier), but also because I loved witnessing such an adorable father/daughter duo! I couldn’t help but to think about how special the relationship is between a dad and a daughter. Being a daughter myself, I know how much a girl needs her dad. But I didn’t as often think about how much a dad needs his daughter. These two are a beautiful example of this. Cali and I were in the car together after getting ice cream and she said “I’m never getting married to anyone else, I’m gonna marry my daddy.” While it was funny and cute that she doesn’t quite understand marriage and thinks it’s actually acceptable to marry her dad, it’s so sweet that in her eyes, there’s no other love that will be good enough or comparable than the love from her dad and her love for him. In the same way, I hope one day Cali knows that she means just as much (probably even more) to her dad as he means to her. She changed his life. She’s his saving grace.
I’m extremely fortunate to have such a great relationship with my own dad and for the never ending, unconditional love that he has shown me over the years. As much as my relationship with my dad means to me and how much I rely on his love and support, its hard to believe that my relationship with my Father in Heaven means even more. My Heavenly Father reminds me that His love far exceeds any love anyone on earth has to offer. It’s the most important relationship I’ll ever have. The most powerful, unbreakable bond. My ultimate protector, comforter, supporter and friend. Everyday, I find my contentment knowing that I am His and He is mine and I am incredibly grateful for the love He has for me.
The most important job a Father has is to show his children the kind of love that Jesus has for us. I’m thankful that my dad is a perfect reflection of God’s love for me and I pray that Chris can continue to do that for Cali and for my husband to do the same for our kids someday.
Folks, the happiness you see in these photos is real! Even away from the camera the love they have for each other radiates through both of them; I just had the privilege of capturing such a special bond. 🙂
I’m finally sharing a few shots of my last photo shoot with you all! Little Maia was so much fun to shoot for. I love seeing the different personalities of babies! So, during this session Maia was so serious in front of the camera! She did not smile for me at all haha. But honestly, I love serious pictures just as much so they still turned out great! She could not have been easier to photograph because she didn’t fuss at all. What a content little girl :).
