This family is so special to me. I feel like I've practically been there for every stage in their lives (almost:).
I first knew Charlie through church. He was a single lad at the time.......a very popular single lad.
And then along came precious Kirby. She made her way into our hearts and has stayed in mine since I first met her.
I was blessed beyond words to be able to take this couple's engagement pictures. They were my first ever engagement session and took the risk of letting me experiment (thanks guys!) . They made 'the pose' famous. The pose that I shot of them on the railroad tracks with the rr centered and them off to the side with Kirby looking lovingly down at Charlie, has been requested by many couples. And what I really can't believe is that I shot all their e-session with film- 3 whole rolls to be exact! Praise you Jesus for digital.
And then I was super stoke to be able to take Kirby's bridal portraits. She was a stunning bride as you can imagine.
I was at their beautiful wedding when they said 'I do' and here they are.......parents! They are amazing parents.
See, I told you I've been there for a lot of stuff with this couple.
Asher is their adorable 1 year old. He was all boy at the park picking up every leaf, rock, and stick insight. We caught a lot of him in action.
This goes along with my philosophy of taking pictures of kiddos- especially 1 year olds! Find something that they enjoy and let them roam. It is so difficult to get a picture of a new walker when you restrict them to a studio. I say,"Let them play!"
Here are some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy!
