Laura has been talking about getting her family pictures done for a few years. I’ve done a couple of sessions for her personally and this past fall, she finally decided to book a family session in Little Elm, Texas. I would love to photograph more Little Elm Family sessions because it truly has some beautiful hidden areas. What made this session even more special was that Laura’s paren’t’s came into town from Kansas and we made it an extended family session.
Laura and her family
Laura and her husband have three beautiful children. At first glance they appear pretty shy, but let me tell you… they are just waiting for you to not pay attention. These three kids are just so sweet. This is a fun age, because they see such wonder in the world and teach us adults to see it through their eyes. All three kids adore their parents… but let me tell you, no one holds a candle to their grandparents. Laura’s mom and dad came into town so that they could be included in the session. If you have ever heard me talk about family picture – I am a big advocate for being present in your pictures and making sure that you have your parents photographed as well. Think about this… when your kids grow up and move out, most parents do not see the purpose in getting their pictures done. However, there will come a day when their grandkids will look at all of the pictures and wonder why there are no more pictures of their grandparents. I am so happy that Laura had them come into town. These images will be cherished for years to come by Laura’s parents, Laura as well as her kids.
As an aside, a few weeks after this session, Laura’s father had a serious medical emergency. Before I continue… I am happy to say that he is recovering and is on the road to being healthy once again. I received a text from Laura as she rushed to Kansas to be with her parents and she told me how thankful she was that she had these images of him, not knowing what the outcome will be. I am thankful that she has them as well. It’s not often that we like to think about these things – but my hope is that Laura values this pictures just a little more now.

I really just can’t begin to tell you how beautiful Little Elm, Texas is. I look forward to the next family session up there. I think a summer beach session just might need be planned 🙂 In the meantime – head over to the Beautiful Evolutions website to see some more of our family sessions.
