I had the pleasure of photographing a family session for Shannon, Brian, and their adorable daughter Marla. I’m so glad we decided to have their family session at Awareness Garden. With the clean kept paths and pretty landscaping, every angle provided a lovely backdrop for the images. Shannon and I met in our monthly centering groups at the Forest Women’s Center. We were both pregnant, Shannon with her first baby, and me with my second. I got to meet so many wonderful mommies during our meetings there. I was so thrilled to have the opportunity to take some lovely portraits for this sweet family.

It was a cloudy day, but that didn’t keep these portraits from looking beautiful. Shannon did such a great job coordinating their outfits. Everyone looked so great together and I love how Shannon stayed true to her style! I just love her white earrings!!

Marla is adorable with her little baby mohawk. I was so surprised that she looked at the camera so often during the session! Family sessions are so fun, and I love to take portraits of Baby and of Mom and Dad together. Shannon, Brian, and Marla really are just such a beautiful family.
