GUYYSSSS ... I am SO excited to show you these images! I've been dreaming and hoping and praying to give people REAL photos - like of their real true life - and its really happening!!! I have such sweet photos of my own family that were taken in our place, in our regular clothes, doing our regular thing and those photos - they just mean the world to me. I know I'll be able to look back on them and remember life as it TRULY was! So that's what I want for others.
I was recently spilling my guts about this dream and some of the inspiration I'd had, at a church event to sweet Alison. She was totally tracking with me, saying that she'd actually been wanting to plan for some new photos of her and her sweet husband, Jordan. So we talked about them - what they like, how they spend their time and we planned for an awesome afternoon at their place with my camera.
It was so exciting for me to see how excited they were for these photos. I did my best to guide them while also allowing them special time with each other. I had them ask each other questions or make confessions and relive memories. They read through a journal they kept when they first married and bought their house. They brought the family together, including all 6 of their sweet animal children, and snuggled on the couch. My favorite moment was watching them sit on the front stoop of their house and each take a moment to pray for their family's time in that home. This is what dreams are made of - love, family, coffee, a blanket on a cold afternoon and someone to snuggle close with and call your own.
