Apparently, I spoke too soon! Our photographer is amazing. Whereas most photographers have at least a week turn around time, Melissa went home and edited 100 images, all tonight. She messaged me saying she was in love/obsessed/captured/something by this shoot, and just couldn’t stop!
I’m inclined to agree. I am so glad we did these. For those of you who know me, photos are one of my love languages. I place lots of importance on them. I always wanted to make sure that we had lots of photos, of both good and bad quality (perferably good, not bad, but when the moment’s there and all you have is a camera phone?…) for all of our kids. It’s why we take 100s of pictures of G every month.
I’m so grateful that we’ve found a photographer like Melissa. She’s waaayyyy cheaper than most photographers, and she’s so creative, so “game” for anything! We dragged her to 3 locations today. And I already mentioned that she worked her butt off to get me these as soon as possible (for the record, I’m not psycho! I only asked for a small handful by Monday!). Plus, she made the little vest/top that G’s wearing at the end, using a tutorial she found on Pinterest.
I tried to just pick my top 10 favorites, but it turned into 20+. These are just sooo good. What priceless memories!!!
One final note: the little boots pictured were Jesse’s when he was a baby. Apparently, legend has it that he loved them so much, he used to sleep in them. My mother in law saved them all these years. I’m so glad she did!
These next photos were taken at Jack Creek Farm.
These next pictures were all taken at an abandoned stone house along the side of the road, not 4 min. from our house. I’ve never seen it before, but Melissa’s got that creative photographer’s eye!
