This was an amazing family to work with! They all got up and drove to Lewis and Clark Lake from various distances for an 8:00 family session so that we could catch the best light of the day. And everyone was happy! I have to admit that I was a little nervous about this shoot just because of the large group and number of small children, but it turned out to be one of my favorite sessions of 2015. You are an amazing family....you have a beautiful family Jim and Iris, give yourselves a pat on the back! Here are a few images from the morning.
Chelsa is a Mommy! And wow, I am feeling old because I remember when Chelsa was this size! My friend, Diane (Chelsa's Mom) had our babies (we both had 2 girls) within a few months of each other and now history has repeated itself and our daughters (Christe, Chelsa, Ashley, and Emily) are having babies within a few months of each other.
So what a privilege it was to take newborn photos for Chelsa and Andy of their precious little girl; Ella Ray! She has tons of black hair, just like her Aunt Christe did when she was born :)
Ella makes a super cute little reindeer. And wow, what a super content baby! The only problem with her session was that she made my job look a bit too easy.
You can see how much love there is here, Andy chrishes his girls.
