Where to begin! I've been photographing Gavin's family for a three years now. I first met Nicole, Gavin's Mama, when she hired me to take newborn pictures of her daughter Lia whom she had just adopted. At the time she had been a single mother of a little boy and had just finished building her new home. I remember admiring Nicole from the start. Here she is a single mom, building a house, and still having enough love in her heart to adopt a new baby all on her own. Since then my admiration for her has done nothing but grow. I've shared some of their family's most special memories, starting with Lia's arrival and first year of life, Nicole's engagement and wedding to her amazing husband David and last September I was honored to be a part of the birth of her third little person, Mr. Gavin Thomas. Now we're right in the middle of Gavin's Baby's 1st Year program, who turned 6 months old the beginning of March (I cannot believe it's been SIX months!). This little guy is stinking adorable! I can't get enough of his baby rolls. Every time I see him I have to squeeze for 20 minutes before I can even start shooting - I have to get my sweet love baby fix first!
Being a part-time photographer I really have to cram when I get my few hours to work each week so as much as I don't like it, I don't get to blog about every single session. I try and try but it never fails that I'll miss a few before I have time to blog again. So today I wanted to share not only some of Gavin's 6 months pictures that we took in March but some of the pictures I've taken of this beautiful family over the past three years. These guys are really one of the sweetest families ever. I'm so blessed that they're not only my clients but have become my friends.
