"A merry heart
doeth good like a medicine..."
Aw, man! Photography can be so much fun - especially when it gets you friend-time with your favorite people. I have appreciated everyone's patience with me when I "practice" on them. The sessions usually ends up in giggles or doubled-over laughter (usually at my mistakes). Hugs to you all ♥
Leah is considered family. She was brave enough to watch my four boys when they were little... and bouncy.. and twinkled with mischief. It is her badge of honor to have babysat for the Handtke boys. This feat landed her other jobs ;o) She is also my music com-padre, and she is more like a sister to me.
So it's with great joy - and giggles - to present to you her now growing family. Love you guys!
The evening sunlight is so amazing! And so is Mama's love ♥
Remember to expose for the skin again when the lighting is backlit.
Getting a peek at their special quiet, alone time... softly singing and snuggling.
Norah is straight out of a storybook...!
Kevin's gentleness even when his girls are exhausted.
Sometimes Mom and Dad need to have Husband and Wife time :o)
Such curiosity and exploration in Norah's little personality!
The cute little dress coupled with the dirt and grass on her fingers make me smile.
Just so sweet.
Super Norah!!!!!. Zoooooooooom....
So loved. And so squished.
Ah. Getting tired.
But I've learned to keep the camera out. Sometimes the best is yet to happen.
Like capturing Leah's beauty that glows inside and out.
Kevin's quiet strength for his family.
(The color version is down below... love them both.)
Norah resting safely is Daddy's arms.
A relaxed, peaceful family snuggle.
And the quintessential couple's photo making the best of their time together...
loving parenthood, but still finding time for a few stolen kisses in-between!
Yep. My favorite people.
