I had such a blast photographing this young woman, even though it landed on the hottest and muggiest day of the summer so far. I was drenched in sweat. Drenched! She, however, was beautiful and glowy and didn't complain for one second. Not even when I made her get in the pond. :) Ellie, you have such a sweet and vibrant nature. Thank you for letting me try to capture you. Your light shines so bright.

I have been nervous to shoot other photographers before, but this night I was OVER THE TOP nervous!
Gah! I really look up to this husband and wife duo and was honored when they asked me to capture their family. And oh, their family!!!
The sweetest and silliest girls! What a fun night it was!

I know I've said this before, but these Heirloom Sessions have my heart. Their granddaughter set up this session after we did the same thing with her other set of grandparents last year. I'm so thankful that she and other people are seeing the value and beauty of capturing their family in this way. This isn't about big extended family photos. This is about capturing details of their life and space. I feel like I missed 382 things for this one because there were just so many beautiful spaces, indoors and out. More than the allure of this physical place, though, was the beauty of this couple. The whole experience felt downright magical. The history of the farm, the stories of their loved ones and the amount of hard work they have put into restoring this place to what it once was. . . SERIOUS MAGIC. And an amazing labor of love. What a gift they are giving to their family. Thank you Gerry and Reuben for opening up and sharing this place with me. It was an absolute honor and my pleasure to spend time with all of you!
