Weaver Family - Mother's Day Sessions '17

So I thought as I begin to post photos from the wonderful Mother's Day sessions I had in May, I would choose a word for each post that represents who and what Mom's are. I don't know all these women well, but I know them enough to at least call out the character and responsibility they hold in their current daily lives of motherhood. So here we go ...

Resilience

Mom's have to keep on keeping on even when everyone else can't or doesn't. They possess this amazing drive that even when their feelings are overwhelming, the housework is piling up, the circumstances are hard and the meals won't make themselves - they just do. Mom's are driven, obviously by love. I've seen Erin keep on for her family and she does it with a smile, because she's such a loving woman.

Scultz Family - Fall Mini-Session

You know when you see a beautiful photo of a good looking family - you make assumptions. I do it too! I think, "Looks like they got it altogether!" "Looks like things are going great!" But ya know one picture can't tell the whole story - but it can be a great testament to the story!

The Schultz' family has been through a lot! Yes, they have 2 handsome young boys, but it was a long journey of pain and struggle to bring them into the world. Marcee suffered through HG (hyperemesis gravidarum) which is more than just 'morning sickness', it is constant severe struggle of intense sickness, with both her pregnancies. Those were both truly difficult years, but this picture is a testament to God's help and faithfulness.

I love looking at these pictures and thinking of God's care and this family's strength! I love photos that tell a story, but these pictures of testimony almost bring me to happy tears! Here is the strong and super sweet Scultz family:

Sames Family - Fall Mini-Session

Seriously folks, does it get any cuter than this?! The sweet Sames family brings a smile to my face. I've just had the chance to start getting to know them this year and they are the sweetest. A few things I've gathered about them is their love for their kiddos, their value of hard work and their servants hearts. Pretty great, right?! Their sweet little Savannah was a natural in front of the camera! and I can't get over that cutie little Cullen! Enjoy this sweet Fall mini-session of this great family:

Weavers - Fall Mini-Session

Isn't it crazy how time flies?! I remember holding little DJ in the hospital days after he was born, and now he's a sweet little 5 year old boy. Sigh. That's gonna be me soon (insert all the crying emojis) with my little Theo growing up! Anyway, now DJ is a big brother to little Elyse. They loved running around in the leaves and exploring together at our shoot. Their mom and dad love them so much and its been sweet to watch their family grow. Here are their Fall Mini-Session photos:
