Internet, please meet my sweet friends Ashley and Aldon. I have been blessed to watch their relationship while they were dating, getting married, and raising two beautiful little girls....and now I get to photo them! Whenever we decided it was time for a photo shoot, Ashley started brainstorming. And let me tell you, this girl is SO creative!!! She went to many antique stores, looked at hundreds of other pics for inspiration, and it all resulted in a spectacular finished product.
Whenever I hang out with this couple, I am always struck by how they treat one another, how they love and instruct their kids, how they handle adversity and obstacles, and how they always have fun doing all the above. Each time I finish hanging out with them, I tell Brad I want my family dynamic to look like that. Sigh :)
Alright, let me briefly explain the greatness you are about to observe. First off, we had apples (!!), cute antique apple boxes with kids in them (can it get any more adorable?), handmade signs that proclaim "beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised", cupcakes + a cupcake fight, and to finish it off, they symbolically washed each other's feet.
Nanner. ( :D )
It's not everyday a photographer has the honor of being flown into town to take photos for just one spectacular family. A family with big hearts, smiles and style, I might add. The mom, Meredith, collected so many great ideas and props it truly was a rich environment for any photographer.
Also, meet the wonderful new baby Slade. He is only 10 days old in these photos! Slade was the perfect little boy and slept through 99% of the session! I hope my babies do that one day :D
If you want to see more photos of this beautiful family, be sure to check out Meredith's blog. It is updated daily with funny stories, beautiful images, and great finds, and even some giveaway prizes! I just adore her so much, and while you're at it, make sure to check out their session from November. You will quickly realize the consistent likability of this awesome family :)
