The Blanchard Family

Lanie was an example, like many of my new and old clients this year, that knew my style, my eye, my vision for a session. She came to me, also, knowing her own style and how it meshed so perfectly with my own. Her expectations for a classic session full of neutrals that she brought to the table allowed for me to so easily photograph her sweet family and create the most timeless of a family heirloom for her--especially during this sweet, expression-filled time of sweet little Blake's life. I hope you enjoy the sweet, classic, and timeless expressions of love within this little family...

Lanie has such a classic look about her as well. Gentle and loving.IMG_3515 IMG_3531 IMG_3553Blanchard-1 IMG_3570 IMG_3662 IMG_3711

You might also recognize the above photo from my 2013 favorites. I can't help it. The beautiful chemistry and story between married couples, the love between parent and child--when photographs can tell of this love so beautifully, it makes me want to cry such happy tears. Lanie, Bruce, and Blake, thank you for allowing me to document for you what I hope is the most timeless treasured collection for you, for years to come.
