Bennett-Collins Family Christmas Photos
It may still be November, but after this festive session, I am definitely ready to start cranking the Christmas music! This family will always hold a special place in my heart, because Heather and Dustin were the FIRST family to trust me with their family photos just a few months ago! I actually was inspired to launch my facebook page after their session from a warm summer afternoon just weeks after baby Brayden was born. I had such a wonderful time with them and afterwards I knew that photography was something I definitely wanted to pursue! I will always be grateful for that afternoon, and the clarity that came from it.
So, not only were they my first family session, but also my first REPEAT clients, and my first indoor session! That's a lot of firsts! I also notice quite a difference in my work from their session a few months ago and these shots, and I have to admit, I am proud.
Also, I was so grateful for the opportunity to capture the love and warmth this family shares. From a warm embrace here, to a cute little cheek kiss there, it really was like something out of a magazine. I truly enjoyed spending the afternoon in their home with them and soaking up the love, and the holiday spirit! Enjoy a few of my favorites!
LOVED the Santa hat! Ryleigh gave Brayden his bottle in between takes...meanwhile, my heart melts to mush. Tender moment with Mom and Daughter... Brayden holding a mini Christmas ornament, my heart melts once more. :-)
