Happy Valentine’s, Baby! {a love-inspired session!}

1 John 3:1  See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.”

 So normally I wouldn’t post a gushy, thoughtful Valentine’s Day post, but the more I thought about today, the more I realized this was the perfect opportunity to share the King’s birth session. : )

The King Family is just one of those families that you know you’ll have in your life for a while. They always offer such incredible encouragement, support, and opportunities for me to grow as a photographer, and I couldn’t be more grateful for them! So, naturally, when they asked me if I would be present for the birth of their daughter Joanna back in December, I jumped at the chance. Cute baby, sweet family, AND pictures? Well yes, of course. : ) They came to my mind today when I realized all the firsts you go through as a parent. For days when you can just sit back and be thankful for the gift of family–of children–of love. What a sweet, sweet reminder that we tread holy ground surrounded by children of the divine Creator. Today–and every day–is an opportunity to practice compassion, gratitude, and the greatest gift we’ve been given–the love of a Father for His children. I pray today that you are surrounded by people that love you well with the Kingdom’s sincere love. May you be blessed!

Love, -C

Shreveport Family Session: The Smith Family {hot chocolate-inspired!}

The Smith Family is one of those families that you just KNOW has a blast when they’re around each other. Their laughter is infectious, and their sweet smiles are sure  to brighten your day. Derek and Julie have two PRECIOUS twin girls, and they pack quite the personality as a pair. We had such a blast with their hot chocolate-inspired family shoot in the park!

For this shoot I grabbed all the light-colored things I could find, got some mugs and flowers, and set out to Betty Virginia Park. Oh, and not to mention the hot chocolate and marshmallows. They were QUITE  a hit for the girls.

So sit back, drink something warm, and enjoy this wintery session! : )
