Pat & Kiki & Miss Elisa

One of my favorite things is to be asked again and again throughout the years to capture important moments in people’s lives. Pat & Kiki are one of those families who bless me over and over again by allowing me to be a part of their lives in this way! It started way back in 2012 with their engagement photos, and just today I took their first daughter’s three month photos (those will be shared in another blog soon!).

I was so excited to be among the first to know that Pat & Kiki were expecting a girl. It was so fun to shoot their gender reveal session!

A few months later we got together for maternity pictures. One of Pat & Kiki’s wedding photos was taken from behind them while they sat on a bench, so each year we take a similar photo for their anniversary. Their maternity session was around the same time as their anniversary, so we made sure to include that photo!

And then, the two became a family of three! I went to their home in Corvallis for the newborn session. Elisa was one of the most cooperative newborns I’ve ever worked with! She made my job easy! Pat writes for the local newspaper, so they had a copy of the paper from the day of Elisa’s birth to include in a photo. What a fun idea!
