When we arrived at Holcomb Gardens for this family session, there was a wedding taking place. Miss Olivia was very excited about that. She told her mom, "I don't want that bride to be a stranger. I want to know her." And that's why Olivia is my favorite.

Looking through the pictures I just think about the crunch of biting into a crisp apple in the cool autumn air, and the carefree joy of being a kid. And that wonderful feeling of being in the arms of your parents, surrounded by their care and love -- being both safe and free.

Kevin and Shannon must be bursting with love for those two little girls.

I'm so glad they will always have these pictures to take them back to that idyllic day. When life was full of magic an innocence, and they could still make every tear disappear with a hug and kiss. When they were Leigha and Olivia's whole world, and everything was cozy, loving perfection.

Ok, I'd better not say anything more, or else we'll all turn into a soppy, weepy mess. ;)

The one thing everyone tells me is, “it went by so fast; I KNEW it was going to go fast, but I didn’t know it would be THIS fast.” I love that through photography, I can capture the cozy feeling of being a family with littles, while you are still their whole world. This will be my gift to you. Turning the most amazing, incredible emotions of your life into something you can hold onto forever.
