meet mawmaw and pawpaw hodgin.  if you know me, you know chloe and nathan are our best friends.  mawmaw and pawpaw are nathan’s grandparents.  for christmas last year i got a request from chloe (and several other of the grandkids) to do a JAGG session of them and to pose them just like we do our engaged couples!  the result….. PRECIOUS.  these two have been married 61 years!  they have EIGHT kids… four girls and four boys.  they have 20 grandkids and 6 Great grandkids!  i could go on and on about how they giggled and laughed during their session, and how they Said they were nervous but really they did Just Fine… but instead i’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  what a Wonderful couple and their family is certainly blessed to have them both!  <3

ashley & lawrence homeslice session
april 4. 2015

2015-04-06_0035.jpgdef of “homeslice”…. a slice of life.  i’ve been loving these sessions that take place in their homes.  this session was requested by these twin’s nanny, who after caring for them since they were born, is going to be moving way far away soon.   she wanted me to come document their morning, complete with chocolate chips, and book reading and wagon rides.  : )

oh this sweet family….

2015-04-02_0014.jpgwe married them three years ago, then soon after their wedding they found out baxter was on his way!  i photographed him as a baby, and at one year and now he’s TWO!  i LOVE in-home sessions like this and wish i could do them more often!!  to me there’s no better place to document life.  and its certainly humbling to know how much of this family’s life i’ve gotten to document.  love them So much!

LOVE when clients email me and say they want another session! we had the pleasure of shooting the hoppert family last summer when baby gemma was 8 weeks old, and now she’s 10 months old! her brother, joe, age 2, had kind of a (really) rough afternoon with his nap cut (way) short, so we will call this “part one” of the hoppert family session! we will be going for “part two” as soon as mother nature throws us a nice winter afternoon and the nap gods are kind to joe (dude, i totally get it, and i wish i could go back to the time when we got to nap)! but even with all the tears that were shed, we Did manage to get a few with him smiling! actually, that was all richie… i was not as successful! i can say it was a bit chilly, and a bit Wet, and when i left my jeans were soaked with freezing cold mud.. but it was so worth it! love this family and we look forward to more time with them in front of our camera a few times this year!
