There aren’t accurate words to describe how much I absolutely love this session and this family. Joe is my cousin, and when he married Brittany, our entire family was thrilled because she just fit perfectly into the family. We were even more elated when they brought two amazing kiddos into the world (Emmy and JJ) and now, they’ve actually welcomed a third to the fam!!
When they were out here for a family event last summer, Brittany had emailed me asking if I could do a family session for them on the beach. Our entire extended family had rented a huge house in the Spring Lake area and since it was a weekday on a private-ish beach, we literally had the whole place to ourselves.
My heart started to melt when JJ and Emmy held hands as they ran down to the ocean. It continued morphing into a puddle on the sand when I saw Emmy’s curls fall onto her dad’s shoulder, and JJ’s hand slip into his mama’s as he fell into a fit of giggles. I loved every second of this family session and it sparked such a fire in me to do more family sessions.
I am so thankful they asked me to be the one to document their family of 4, and I hope someday soon I can meet their family of 5! (Dang it living so far away!)
Brittany and Joe, your family is the most precious I’ve ever met. Watching you to become parents to two amazing little humans is the best, and they are so smart, kind, and loving. You should be so proud!! I love you all!!
