The Hill’s will always hold a special place in my heart. I met them almost three years ago. They called on me to photograph their newborn daughter, Violet, who was just a few days old at the time. I had the privilege of photographing her every few months until she turned one and every year after that. I love not only being able to watch Violet grow, but also the friendship that has developed between her mom, her dad and me. I look forward to each and every session that I have with them because I know how much fun we always have together. They adore Violet and you can tell in every single image that I took of them. They are always so happy and go-with-the-flow for their sessions, especially Brad. Most dads are not 100% excited to be at a photo session, but from day one Brad has been THE BEST SPORT about it. He is right next to Jenn making Violet smile and giggle, carrying bags of goodies that we are using for the session, or even my camera bag. He is definitely involved and excited to be apart of each and every session.
On this particular fall session we added a few loved ones to the mix. Jenn’s parents, Steve & Cindy, and Brad’s mom, Sue. It truly was a fun and easygoing session. You could tell they all enjoyed being with one another and enjoyed the evening in the park. Jenn loves, and I mean LOVES fall in Missouri. This was the third fall session since I have been working with them, and I will have to say...we nailed it. A fall session is what she wanted and EXACTLY what she got. The trees in the park that weekend were stunning. They were absolutely beautiful and were so colorful! The only part that threw everyone for a loop was the fact that it ended up being 80 degrees outside. A little on the warm side for sweaters, scarves, and lots of layers but they rolled with it quite well. It’s one of the joys of living in Missouri, you just never know what you are going to get when it comes to the weather.
Below are just a few of my favorite images of The Hill’s and The Hufham’s. Miss Violet ALWAYS puts a smile on my face and I know she will do the same for you too. Enjoy and Happy Monday!
