Oh sweet Leighton, how 6 months has flown by, I swear we just did newborn photos! (check them out here.) She was all smiles when I arrived, oh that gummy smile melts your heart! Now that she’s mobile, she wants to be on the move non-stop…which makes a photo shoot interesting for sure. Thankfully we trapped her with some props! :) And, I LOVE the sock monkey hat that we used on her big brother at his 6 months photos! And, it’s almost the same expression! Thanks for allowing me to document your family as they grow!
Oh how I love new little babies! Miss Eden has two siblings who adore her. You know they’ll be watching out for her all through her life, she’s blessed to have them. Eden is so sweet and cuddly…and put up with me moving her all around. Congratulations on your newest family member, she’s just perfect.
Charlie is a lover. He is so sweet, caring, and thoughtful. He creates cards, notes, and special crafts for different people daily. And, his love for Jesus is a great example for all of us. He’s always been a mama’s boy and loves to cuddle, play games, read books, craft, build anything and everything, and dance…oh the dancing. Charlie loves to dance, lately he’s been into learning choreographed dances! He’s been doing the Cupid Shuffle, Cha Cha Slide, and recently I taught him the electric slide and how to two-step…oh the memories from country line dancing! And his favorite is the Macarena…I’ll look over and he’s doing it randomly in a store, parking lot, or at karate. He LOVES it. Speaking of karate, he finally found his thing! We have tried team sports…and they didn’t go great, but karate keeps him challenged, focused, and disciplined. I highly recommend it! I have a Karate-dancing-builder who loves his mama…lol, good luck to his wife! He’s already told me that he wants to live next to me when he’s grown so I can come over every day for a hug and kiss. Oh how I love my Charlie.
I always look forward to our yearly session with this family. Lindsey puts together the most adorable outfits for everyone! They look like they should be in a style magazine! Even with a little sickness and the cold, the kids did great! Thank you for being patient with me and following me all around the Nelson’s front lawn.
With photos sessions this time of year, you never know what you’ll get. After rescheduling from the week before because of rain, we were pushed to a very cold and frigid day. But, we didn’t let it defeat us! Chris and Gabrianna have a beautiful open space living area…with awesome light coming in from the windows. After getting some great shots indoors, everyone braved the cold outside. The boys did great through it all! It’s fun to watch them interact with each other, the oldest helping the youngest…and the middle one in the words of his mom “is a loose canon, you never know what you’ll get!” I get it, he’s my Allie…I’m sure they’ll be the best of friends. Thank you again Chris and Gabrianna, hope you love them!
