This session will always have a special place in my heart. I get teary eyed weepy still looking at these images because their story is so touching. I had the privilege of meeting Lindsey 4 years ago at her little sisters wedding in Gainesville, Florida that I shot. I am thrilled we stayed in contact over all these years over social media. Over the years I watched as she poured her heart out on her blog and instagram whenever their hopes and dreams of becoming parents failed (for the moment). God always has the perfect timing, doesn't He? But, it still always broke my heart for them for all they wanted was a family. Then one day, I saw the news that so many of us were waiting to hear... they were PREGNANT! It was a true miracle. And when they found it they were having a boy they named his John Henry and have been affectionately calling him Henry ever since. Which of course you guys know I am little partial to ;) When Lindsey emailed me about doing a session with me I was BEYOND thrilled! First of all, I felt enormously blessed to take their very FIRST family photos and secondly, when you scroll down, you'll see- they are a picture perfect beautiful from the inside out MODEL family!!! I mean, seriously... they are just gorgeous!!! I swear she must feed that baby sunshine for breakfast. Their session was as much of a dream as it looked. Soft, pretty, light, airy and full of whimsy. It was perfection. We picked the BEST day for it too! It was an unusually cool and mildly windy summer day on a Florida beach (in Amelia Island)... is this even happening?! I swear God was really looking out for us that day. With the warmest of smiles and the sweetest glances I feel like this session captured the essence of a brand new family that knows just how blessed they all are. They are so in love with each other. And that Henry? -Sigh- What can I say? That little stinker stole my heart! Super puffy love this family. So let me stop chatting and let's have a drumroll please... introducing the debut of the Throne Family!
Love you all to pieces!
