wichita family photographer: emma + family

Emma called me last minute trying to squeeze in a shoot as her family was going to be in town for Christmas.  From Burkina.  As in Africa.                      Special occasions call for special circumstances!

My favorite thing about these photos?

You can tell instantly how much Emma and her family love each other.  They were genuinely so excited to be together.  They knew how special it was for their family to be together for Christmas as their time shared is limited.  So many great moments – the way Emma’s dad looks at Emma’s mom.  They way the entire family mother-henned the baby, even though you can’t really describe an adult man as a baby.  And, talk about great smiles.

I hope you all had such a memorable time together.

Enjoy these moments.

"It's a feeling."

One of the best ways I've heard my work described.

It's like a dream you can't quite get back to, but you know was so so good because when you woke up you had a smile on your face, and you keep trying desparately to remember all of the vivid details you can be present in that in-between state for just a little more  - the warmth of being together, the sounds, the laughter...the feelings.

Here's more on what our work together could be.
