Hi there! I know it's been a little quiet around here! It was great to take some time off work over the holidays to focus on my own little family. Even though it's been quiet here, it's definitely not been quiet at my house. We adopted a little rescue dog, named him Teddy and watched our boys fall in love with the 12 lb fur ball. We went to Georgia to visit my side of the family and got rained on for most of our trip. We came back to celebrate the new year and an SEC championship for my beloved Georgia Bulldogs. I shot lots of lifestyle images for myself, a couple family shoots in Georgia and I'm ready to greet the new year with lots of energy and projects...so many projects!
But, enough about me...before we get into 2018, I want to highlight the Dyer family that I was able to shoot back in December.
They reached out last minute and wanted images before Christmas. I was so glad the stars aligned and I was able to get them in for a last minute family session. The chose my top-secret (super easy) Colorado Springs mountain background location - a favorite amongst my military clients and we went to work...
Talk about celebrating a wonderful young duel military (that means that both Mom and Dad serve in the military!) family! The Dyers are both successful active duty officers while also managing their very active household which includes a three year old, newborn and their beloved dog!! We were able to shoot just prior to sunset (winter light makes evening shoots impossible since it's dark at 5pm...but it's perfect for families with young children!) on a relatively balmy day in December. As we were wrapping up, I saw the light off the flat side of the horizon and knew that those images would be the icing on the cake from our session. Both of their children were adorable and amazingly well behaved, even as it started to get cold once the sun dropped.
I loved the bond they had with their aging dog and how they really wanted to capture her personality and the love she has for her family. Mommy and furry baby pictures were truly heartwarming.
As always, the Dyer family session was all wrapped up in a little under an hour. Perfect timing for the littles!!!
We loved spending time getting to know this amazing family and we know that they’ll adore these beautiful photos forever. Click on the video below to see all of the wonderful images from this special family photo session.
