Christina and Hans were total troopers! It’s often hard to get excited about taking engagement pictures when it is cold and dreary outside but these two showed up with their game faces on and made the most of the not so fabulous weather. Because we didn’t have any green grass or pretty flowers to add that pop of color, we decided to use the colorful backdrop of downtown Roswell to add some pizazz to their engagement pictures. Kristina…you did a wonderful job picking out clothing for you and Hans to wear! The blues/teals totally complimented with the many red doors and brick walls we found on our adventure wandering around downtown Roswell for the perfect locations! You can tell from the smiles and sweet looks in these portraits that you just love each other to pieces! I had a blast getting to know you two and can’t wait for the wedding! Enjoy your sneak peak!

Ok ok…so I know the title to this post is a bit quirky and weird…but…I promise…what it says is true – Dr. Seuss is smart!
Why? Because of this quote:
“I’m glad we had the times together just to laugh and sing a song, seems like we just got started
and then before you know it, the times we had together were gone.”
You know who else is smart? Yep, my friend Amber – whose gorgeous family is pictured below. (www.amberandersonphotography.com) Why is she smart? Well…she’d probably argue that she’s smart for a lot of reasons (because she is definitely a smart aleck like that!) but…one of the main reasons that she’s smart is because she GETS this quote – wholeheartedly – and embraced it for this session! Amber understands, that the moments we have with our kids are fleeting…they are only going to be this little for a while…and when you blink your eyes, they are magically going to be all grown up! So…she asked me to fly out to visit her in Washington (yep…the state!) and capture some images of her family being just that…a family. A family that loves, and cherishes, and adores one another. We got a second to set aside all of the craziness of life and schedules for a few minutes and just capture the simpleness of pure love. Amber said it best on her own blog…so I’ll leave you with a quote from her – see…told you she is smart!
“I realized that I take photos for other families, but have neglected to have photos of my own family done.
Take those photos. Take as many snapshots of your kids and family as you can. Snapshots might not be prize
winning portraits, but those will be the moments you cherish for life. I will also be making time for sessions
with my own kids. I am hiring a photographer to take new family photos of us ASAP since this isn’t
something I can do myself. I don’t care if I’m not at the weight I want to be at. I don’t care ifI haven’t
had time to update my hairstyle. I want those memories in print. Stop putting it off and capture your family as they are!”
