Photographing this family ranks up there with one of my most favorite things. It means I get to spend time with them catching up on life and acting silly with Mabry. Every single thing about this session makes me happy. Because for me, it wasn’t just about getting the perfect Christmas card photo (okay, so that was a part of it), but seeing the smiles on their faces, catching Mabry kiss her mom’s cheek, watching as she gives her dad an adorable look, that’s what it was about. I love these three just like they’re family because they kind of are. When you’ve known someone as long as I’ve known Christina, sometimes that whole “she’s like a little sister” thing just happens. So by default, that makes Walter and Mabry family too.
This session was so perfect and simple. In their front yard. Where they could be themselves, where they were at home, where Mabry could sport her tutu and cuddle with her mommy. And I got to be a part of that. Is there anything better?
