you’ve seen these little ones and their parents on the blog. a lot. in november 2005 their mama found me via google. emma’s first photo shoot took place when she was 3 months old and i’ve lost count on the number of portrait sessions we’ve done since. although marc and kristi started out as clients we quickly became friends and realized just how much we have in common. over the last 8 years we’ve spent a lot of time together. i’ve watched their daughter grow up, i was in the room when their son was born and i have the incredible honor of being his godmother.
these were a couple of my favorite images from gavin’s newborn session and the one on the right is still one of my favorite newborn sibling shots ever.
over the years chris and marc have grown just as close as kristi and i and our kids simply adore each other. marc and kristi are more than just our friends – they’re like family. i call kristi my sister from another mister and having the four of them in front of my camera feels like anything but work. here are just a few of my favorite images from their latest family portrait session.
emma’s curls and freckles just slay me. she’s a total girly girl and so full of spunk!
and really? the dimples on this boy…mr. gavin is destined to be a heartbreaker. he’s already got his godmother wrapped around his finger.
i love you, hess family. and i can’t imagine life without the four of you in it!
