the shelley family

I’m so happy this mom asked me to photograph her family! Our session was just before both of the kiddos (I can call them that no matter how old they are) headed out for their own adventures — one leaving the house to be on his own and the other headed back to college!

As I sit here and think about them and the stage of life this family is entering, I realize it’ll be here for my family before I know it. So today, as I send mine off to the first day of school, I sit here appreciating the quiet house but missing the noise, I’m sending some hugs out to all those others to help you get through whatever stage you are in at this moment! Because when it gets quiet is when you miss the noise the most!

Thank you so much Shelley family!!!
