love // sneak peek of Kari & Maddie

The bubbles were in my bag. My speaker system was on stand-by. And I had my list of poses to hit and interactions to help get them there.

But I didn't need any of that.

These two were magical all on their own.

My props stayed tucked away and I concentrated on the natural beauty unfolding in front of me... snuggling together on the blanket, talking about favorite memories, and even sharing a "secret" handshake.

Watching this family brought joyful tears to my eyes. And I'm thankful to them for allowing me to witness a piece of their world.

Here's a sneak peek from last night's family session:
