I mentioned a few days ago how much I love being a part of my clients lives as they go through those big life changing moments–marriage, pregnancy and parenthood. Amber & Kyle are another of those special clients. I photographed their wedding out in the country many year’s ago on their family farm (oh how I love country weddings…). Then a few years later they welcomed their darling daughter Jailey into this world. Jailey still holds the studio record for the most smiles EVER by a three month old baby during a portrait session–so smiley & cute! A few year’s later Lois and I provided Amber & Kyle a Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep session with their beautiful daughter Kailynn during her precious and brief life. I’ll never forget standing in that hospital room thinking that I had photographed both the happiest and saddest days of their lives.
Recently Amber & Kyle brought in their brand new baby boy, Briggs for his newborn session! All 7 pounds, 9 ounces of him (did I mention this is the second newborn baby in a row to come in born at the exact same weight?!)! Briggs was just a doll and slept through the first part of the session (I LOVE sleeping baby pics!) and then perked up with some bright eyes for the second half. Perhaps one of my favorite pictures of the day though is the family portrait where Jailey is sitting on her Daddy’s shoulders making a face. It just makes me smile every time I look at it–pure Jailey silliness 🙂
Congratulations Amber & Kyle! You have a beautiful family!!
