I’ve known Mrs. B for a long time.  So, long, in fact that I planned her wedding to Mr. B some (gasp!) years ago.  Somehow, while I’ve had kids and gotten older – she’s just had kids and stayed beautiful.  And she has these beautiful, spunky, energetic two little people now.  Amazing to think it all started with that wedding!

What can I say, Miss K had me on my feet.  I love photographing kids that give me a run for my money.  Because they always, always give me smiles and looks they don’t think they are giving me.  And it’s a delight to freeze those for a moment in time.  And Miss B is the epitome of grace.  When she looks in the camera, there’s some window into the woman she will be.  It’s pretty amazing.

So, here you are my sweet family.  It was WONDERFUL to see you guys again.  XOXO!  Corey

It’s no secret that kids are very favorite thing to photograph.  I love you grown ups out there (you guys can read, take direction and after all you are the ones that hire me).  But there’s no feedback like a smile from a kiddo.

I just loved meeting Baby A with her light up boots.   (LIGHT UP BOOTS!!!! Do those come in my size?!?!  I’d be the cutest girl at the Luke Bryan concert!)  When she let that smile loose, WOW!  And her sweet parents remind me of my time with juice and diaper bags taking care of my sweet Walker.  Those years are over so quickly.  Makes me love creating the photographs even more.

XOXO you sweet family!  Can’t wait to see this little one as she grows!

Corey

One of the things I love most about photographing kids and families is that it’s so unpredictable.  But never have I ever discovered frogs in the middle of a session.  The G family got right into it – no one was afraid of the little cuties and our resident princess, Miss Viv, even pretended to kiss one.  Could I have scripted that better?

I had a great time shooting this super sweet set of siblings bright and early last Saturday.  And guess who brought his favorite dump truck!  Baby K did!  He had a blast pushing it about.  And his sister – with her lovely locks – was patient as ever!  These two are such cuties!

I know it’s a cliche.  But it seems that just the other day, this vibrant, empathetic, playful tween was just a snuggly baby in my arms.  One day, sitting in her nursery, I made myself take note of everything.  The softness of her hair.  Her baby smell.  The way the light from the chandelier made patterns on the ceiling.  The sound of her breathing as she drifted off to sleep.  The feel of the rocking chair.  It’s so vivid, even now, that I can almost put myself back in that room.

At eleven, she still sits on my lap.  I tuck her in.  She calls me “mommy.”  But she’s in a liminal space now – moving fluidly between girl and woman – as she begins to navigate with the world at a distance from me that is both exhilarating and terrifying.  Nestled in my arms those years ago, I could keep her safe.  As she bumps through the world now, she will learn her own lessons and create her own calluses.  And it’s my job to be ever present, cradling her when she wants to be cradled and letting her run free when she’s ready.

When we played in the park the other day, I took a few minutes to capture these.  So, so glad that I did.  I miss the baby.  But I love the young woman she’s becoming.

XOXO, Corey
