Although the daffodils have been blooming for months and the grape hyacinths are awake most of the trees are still slowly coming out of their slumber. I was so happy that we found a magnolia tree that had its blossoms to use as my backdrop. I love working with this little family and although we had a bit of difficulty due to S. having a sensory overload I was still able to get some gorgeous shots. Here are a few and I was even able to catch S's smile here and there.
While I was visiting my childhood home I was able to photograph my brother and his family. This visit was my first time to meet my youngest nephew, who just turned one - so it was a nice addition to get to photograph and spend time with them. We wandered through town and found interesting "city-scapes" and found beauty against brick and tin walls. It was fun looking at my old home town through a photographer's eyes and to be able to photograph ones that I love and to see them love on each other. Connections and family, a beautiful thing to document.
This lovely family contacted me months ago to have their family photos done. I am so glad that they were willing to wait until I had an opening and that I was able to capture them during the week of not only their daughter's birthday but also their wedding anniversary. I hope that these pictures help bring back cherished memories for them and that they show the connection and love within their family.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
