Just a Little Shout-Out :)

I'll be sharing some of Kim and Blake's maternity photos with you soon as promised, but first, I want to tell you how much I love the Porters. Mary and Brandon were my first-ever portrait models, and I owe my portrait skills to them. Without their willingness to let me practice, I would not have started out on this journey of learning about portrait work. All I have learned (and will learn, too) can be traced back to this maternity shoot:

And then there was this (much more difficult) newborn session with their precious son, Lawson:

Sadly, the Porters moved far away from us last year, but Alex and I had a wonderful visit with them in their new home a couple of months ago. I couldn't resist capturing their growing family again:

Aren't they adorable?
