outnumbered 3 to 1 and loving it

I don't think I've ever had a family shoot experience that felt so, so relaxed. I met beautiful Ginger and her boys on a gorgeous evening. The weather was dreamy and the golden light streaming through the spring green leafy trees was amazing. Ginger and her husband, Jon, were...perfect. Not a single ounce of stress exuded from either of them the entire time. Just playfulness, love, and patience. And that  big boy Jonah and baby Riggins? Kill me. Two of the sweetest, happiest little guys I've ever met. I found myself wondering if Ginger realized how incredibly beautiful she is. I'm not sure she does. And that's the best kind of beauty- the kind that's humble and giving. The kind that makes you want to be a better mama yourself after just watching the effortless, calm, and cute way she interacted with her children- especially Jonah. The kind of beauty who texts me precisely as I'm writing this post simply to thank me for the session and calls me "an angel on earth." Meeting and working with families like Ginger's reminds me how much true goodness there is in the world because  these guys are just full to the brim with it and throwing it back out to all who cross their path.
