this little nugget was one of my FIRST clients, and now she's turning FOUR! i've known khloe's mama since elementary school when we were acolytes at church together and i've had the joy of getting to know her husband kyle, khloe, and newest addition braxton this past year. i LOVE the briney's and always get excited to see what we come up with for every session.
this year for khloe's birthday pictures we decided to try out the potawatomi conservatory and i couldn't have been more pleased. it easily has become one of my favorite places to shoot with all the bright and vibrant colors, and was a great location to entertain energetic littles. i look forward to making my way back soon!
i've been photographing mattea for half of her life now and this year she's hitting that big double-digit mark. i met her mom and my friend, shelby, along with her little brother brandon jr. in downtown south bend for a quick family session to commemorate her big 1-0 birthday (daddy was at work and missed!).
it's such a heart-warming feeling to look through the lens and be taken aback by the fact that this little girl you've been snapping pictures of has suddenly grown into such a beautiful young woman. mattea adores her little brother, and the feeling is obviously mutual. to see the love shelby has for her kids is a joy. these two are some of the sweetest, kindest, and funniest littles i know, and it's an honor to have been able to capture these moments for them.
