The Weathers Family is by far one of my favorites!!  They just flat out know how to have fun.  Meet the gang: Carlton, Aimee, Hannah Grace, Noah, Lilly & the little spitfire, Hope.  Last year I had the opportunity of capturing this little crew and I quickly realized how well behaved and full of joy they all seemed to be.  One thing I can tell: these kids know love.

They are full of belly laughs and they know what it means to be a part of a family.  Photographing them again this year gave me a better sense of each of their personalities... especially little Miss Hope.  At one point in our session, I was taking pics of Carlton and Noah (photo below) and out of nowhere Hope tackles me!  Before I knew it, we both on the ground... so I just adapted and shot from there, arms around her, accepting that she was going to be a part this process in more ways than I originally thought.

I just love these!

The Weathers are so warm.  Interacting with them leaves you knowing you are loved... even if it's in the form of a tackle by a two-year-old.

I'm so very thankful for my job and for opportunities like this to tell stories over time.
