Paintings lately

I love meeting the families that I get to meet through doing portraits.
I originally went to school to be a social worker so that I could work with abused and neglected children, so I studied a lot about families and how vitally important that little unit is to the development of children and to the overall structure of society.
And then I ended up getting a degree in art and minoring in family sciences and now I get to combine both, celebrating families through art.
I love getting little glimpses into the lives of these beautiful families of all different shapes and sizes and see how they fit together.
I'm so grateful I get to do this!

This little family of mine

Just a few of many favorite photos from a family shoot.
I love these pictures, I love that cute-faced boy who asked me to marry him five years ago.
I am crazy about him.
I love the sweet little human beings that depend on me and Adam so completely.
I love seeing their happy faces, their love for life.
I love their deep blue eyes that they inherited from neither Adam or me.
I love this little life that we have made.
I love all the hard work that goes into every single day.
I love it.
