This session is so special to me! I have known this family (of almost 6!) for years and they are related to another fabulous family in my neighborhood that I love. ❤ Every time I get to see this gorgeous mama we would kinda dream up this perfect shoot IF (when… ;)) they decided to have #4…and little sister is on her way soon. So my Cinco de Mayo was spent celebrating the wonderful news they are going from a family of cinco to seis! They came to my studio in Lake Wylie and mama got her hair and makeup done before we started. She brought her sweet mother too and I just love capturing the 3 generations together! ❤ Her husband surprised her with a stunning vase of her favorite flowers – pink peonies. Ohmigoodness. The blooms were to die for! They were the perfect accent to the session. We set up the studio and did some photos indoors with the kiddos first. The boys were totally hamming it up and they absolutely adore their mama. We went outside to the gardens – finally in bloom!! How beautiful is this family shot?! Everyone did GREAT. Especially considering it was unusually cooler yesterday. Mama even rocked it out in the lake at sunset. Love these photos so much! It’s a honor to capture this special time for them ❤ Here are a few favorite photos from our time together!
