You don't have to be tattooed, you just have to be awesome.

From the minute I walked in the door, I just fell in love with this sweet little lady. I would be willing to bet that this is a fairly commonly reported phenomenon – she really is amazingly darling. I think this is a case of that old saying being true, though, about the apple not falling far from the tree, because this was seriously one of the sweetest families I’ve ever met. From my initial phone call with the mama, she was so kind and wonderful – even when I misheard her daughter’s name and then called her that in an email!

But, I think that I would say that this family just exudes love. I could tell from the minute I walked in how taken both parents were with their baby – and it showed all through their session.

The parents are definitely not the only ones in the family taken with this little darling, though. She modeled creations for me handmade by both of her grandmothers, gifts from her aunt, and even had a special needlecraft from her great grandmother. There is love to spare in this kind, thoughtful family. You can just feel it coming through the screen, can’t you?


And, I have to mention how cool it is how this family got to me! Mama’s sister works with someone I photographed when I was just getting started. Her sister remembered those photos three years later and sent her to my website! I couldn’t believe it when I heard that but I am so grateful to Auntie for that great memory of hers, because this family was really a treat to get to work with!

And, really, truly. Who doesn’t love pictures of a daddy loving up his little girl? Melt, right?


Thank you, T Family, for allowing me to help you capture this moment in time. <3
