I am so excited to introduce you to the Harless family! If you’ve been to my blog before, you’ve read the following line before, but it fits in this situation and I couldn’t help myself. I LOVE when friends trust me enough to photograph them. The day we had the Harless family session, it was H-O-T…but thankfully we made the best of it and everything turned out amazing!!!
Funny back story…have you ever followed a page online because the topic is something that 100% pertains to your life but you’re just a lurker to get info? Well, that’s what happened with Megan and I. You see…she’s the BEST in the biz when it comes to PCSing (military term for moving) and all things moving within the Army. Another friend of mine recommended a private group to me that had loads of great information about moving, and my family was in the middle of a PCS so I jumped right into the group. Fast forward four months…my family and I are at the neighborhood park down the street from our house and my husband and I start introducing ourselves to those around us. Megan says hello and we start a conversation. One thing leads to another and she tells me she leads this massive PCS group online. My immediate thought was “oh my gosh I’m in that group!” Ha! So…with all of that said, Megan and I became neighbors and friends this summer.
Ok, ok, back to the session…Megan had a few requests for her session…and this was one of them. An adorable photo of her and her daughter walking through the sunflower field. You see, this is a recreation of an image that was taken many years ago of the two of them. I absolutely love when families recreate things that mean so much to them!
These three had mixed emotions about walking around a sunflower field with me that day…ha! One was super excited to be all dressed up and have Mommy’s lip gloss on…one was internally hating everyone around…and one was not happy but doing their best not to show it. I won’t name any names but you can guess who was who. Needless to say, little Natalie LOVED that her brothers were “forced” to hold her hand for a full minute.
Just look at those sweet smiles! Some were given freely and some took some work…either way…Mom got what she wanted! Win win all around!
I’m excited that this amazing family lives right down the road from my family and I and we can continue to get to hang out.
