We had our first professional portraits done as a family about 3 years ago and we have done so at least once a year ever since. I always love seeing my family enjoying one another and our love for each other captured in a single shot, especially since we are always so busy. Family portraits have become very important to me, as I'm sure it is to most moms.
This week I have asked my friend and local photographer, Nikki Gunter-Richardson of Nichole Lynn Photography to share some of the stories behind her portraits. When I met her, I fell in love with her portfolio, but it was the stories that really got to me. Some stories were happy and some were sad and heartbreaking, but you'd never know because of the level of professionalism Nikki provides. Her portraits are lasting still memories that capture her subjects just beautifully. I would highly recommend her to friends, family and of course my clients.
After being in labor for most of the night with her fourth child, Kristin had about 30 minutes to just enjoy her sweet newborn before her three oldest children got to meet their newest sibling. I love how peaceful baby looks in Kristin’s arms. The Denninger family asked me to document the birth so they could be fully present with one another, and with their children, as they got to know the newest member of their family. I felt so honored to help capture this occasion and to capture this moment of calm for Kristin before the bustling life of a mother-of-four set in.
