foster the fun

i was SO honored when rory asked me to capture her family.  she wanted FUN, real photos of her little clan and so we picked a park close to our neighborhood.  an iconic park in nashville, but one where they could spread their wings, literally in some cases and be playful in a gorgeous sunset park evening.  i try not to play favorites, and loved each little foster's personalities, but evie stole my heart and the show pretty quickly.  she LOVED the camera, and i loved her for it.  she also reminded me SO much of my little middle child, tate.  beats to her own drum.  

this family is the epitome of loving and glad i was able to capture these memories.

thanks to rory for trusting me.  xoxo

baby bailey and her adoring big sister. 

i know this scene well since i went through it myself five years ago with my first two girls.  quinn is in LOVE with her baby sister, bailey. reading to her, patting her head, counting her toes, and just wants to hold her non-stop.  its moments that change in an instant and over weeks of baby sisters arrival and I'm so thrilled i was there to capture these for this family.  

i called to prep mom over the phone for the shoot and it was a bit unnecessary actually.  shaun is a laid back mom who has brought hundreds of babies into the world herself (she's an OB).  she and dad were open to any shots i wanted to play with and quinn was just perfection in her big sister role.  along with fresh paint on the walls and newly laid tile in the master bathroom, we took advantage of every open space and beautiful nook in the house.
