I have been photographing this family for years. And it has been a treasure being there for them and seeing their beautiful family grow. Each session is more and more filled with love and happiness. It is contagious!! We just giggle and play the whole time. It's perfect.

I actually first started working with Jeff when him and his wife we expecting their first! They were adorable and so so excited to be parents. And then we had their lifestyle newborn session, which was so sweet and so tender. They were a perfect little family. They love their little chunk so much. Fast forward a few months, this is what Jeff emailed me:

You did maternity and newborn photos for Cass and me earlier in the year, and I absolutely loved the way they turned out. I've never looked so good!

I am full swing into family photo sessions this season - and I love every single second of it. I mentioned on my Facebook page that this family is one in a million. And I feel like during family sessions, I gain a lot of tips/inspiration for how to raise a family. I was in awe of their kids. They were SO sweet and caring to one another. It was amazing to see their family adore their littlest sister. I've never seen so much love before! Amy, how did you do it? And with so many kids! It is amazing. YOU are amazing. I think people are serious when they ask for a book about your parenting tricks. It would be devoured.

I met Victoria 3 years ago? I believe. V - correct me if I'm wrong lol. And she is just a charmer. You want to be near her and LIKE her. She is a genuine and caring person and I am so blessed to have met her and to have her friendship in my life. And I have also watched Victoria grow and blossom her own photography business, Luminant Photography, and it has been incredible to see her develop and learn.

Seth's Senior Session | Pearl Photo & Design

We're switchin' it up on the blog over here! Instead of adorable babies, gorgeous families, and super cute baby bumps - I'm photographing a Senior and a guy! Woah. I know, totally not the norm. Well we had a blast! We went around downtown Lafayette, found some run down building, and used an old trailer to show off his awesome smile and massive guns!

A lot of times when photographing guys, you can instantly tell that this is not the place they want to be. They would much rather be throwing a football or playing the Xbox. None of this posing stuff! So I work with them to realize that having their senior session could actually be FUN. Who knew? Seth was nervous at first, but by the end of the session he had his "Blue Steel" look nailed and he knew it! It was also fun having his younger brother there. And I put him to work! He was the reflector/shade creator and he did an awesome job!!

So all you Senior guys out there, check out Seth's photos. He brought in his tough, football personality and gave us his big smile. All while having fun!

I promise - you will too :)
