The last time I had the privilege of photographing Emily and Hosea, they had only been married a few months. Fast-forward three years and they are back in the U.S. and are expecting their second child! Such an exciting time for this adorable little family!
Emily and Hosea live overseas, so their trips home are not as frequent as they would like. However, when they do get to come back home it just makes their visits that much more memorable. When I got a message from Myra (Emily’s Mom) informing me that Emily, Hosea, and their son Daniel were coming in for visit at the end of November I was beyond excited! Not only was I excited to see Emily and Hosea again, but this would also be the first time I would meet their son, Daniel. Oh. My. Goodness. You want to talk about a cutie pie! Daniel is adorable! Those big brown eyes and his little grin that lights up his entire face! He is just so sweet and is going to be a heartbreaker for sure when he grows up! What’s the icing on the cake for this family? They are expecting their second child, a baby girl, in the next few weeks!
When Myra and I were setting up all of the details for their family session, we were mentally preparing ourselves for a cold December afternoon in the park. However, Mother Nature has an odd sense of humor and decided to give us spring temps in December, so it was a beautiful and mild afternoon in the park that day. It was especially perfect outside for December. This is a Missouri winter I can get on board with! Ha!
I had so much fun with The Vaega Family that afternoon! Chasing little Daniel around, watching him laugh and giggle with his mom and dad, and getting some great shots of the three of them. You can instantly tell how much they adore each other when you look at these photos. As the sun was beginning to set, the sky turned into the most beautiful “cotton candy” sort of colors. It was then I was able to get the sweetest images of Emily and Hosea together. The way they look at each other and the way they interact, it’s incredible to see. It’s evident to everyone around them that they are in their own little world and how much they truly mean to each other. You know you are in the presence of true love when you are with them!
I am counting down the days until their next session. Next time we will be meeting their new baby girl, Grandma Myra and Grandpa Jack will both be there too. I can’t tell you enough how excited I am for their upcoming spring session. It’s truly an honor to photograph them during this special time in their lives. Emily and Hosea, congratulations on the new little addition to your family. I can’t wait to meet her!
Here are just a few of my favorite images of The Vaega Family. Enjoy and Happy Wednesday!
