Yet again, another AMAZING November afternoon! I have been sooo lucky this fall with sessions let me tell you - it's been fairly warm, sunny, and pretty much perfect (with the exception of maybe 1-2 sessions) For a photographer, that is a great ratio! HA!

The Gaines family is one of my favorite families! Mom has probably known me since birth since she grew up with my older sister and I have been best friends with her sister since Kindergarten. So to say I've known her forever is not a lie! HA!

I've been photographing this family for 4+ years now and each year gets better and better. I sometimes see them multiple times a year for sessions but there was just something about this one that really stood out. Yes they posed for some family shots, and yes their outfits were all super fun and coordinating but as the kids get older, their personalities really shine! I allowed the kids to run the show and we got so many fun shots - each one of them being themselves! And those are the images that matter most. Morgan is a beauty, and as she gets older, she likes to take more mature photos and not the silly faced ones. Riley is a little spitfire who RAN the WHOLE time and Nathan was as cool as a cucumber (you'll see that shot with his sunglasses!) Each one so different, yet sooo much love between them! Love this family and I can't wait to see them again soon!
