The Morgans + 1

Meet the Morgan family. The other night, we went out for a little shoot on the beach. We saw so many things: a little lady with a flash tattoo dancing on the beach, a little old man who photobombed some of the shots, and a ton of sea gulls! Lucas didn’t like the sand. He can’t say it yet, but he’s really excited about his little sister coming in January.  And  you could probably guess…Alex loves his photo taken.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

I can’t believe it. I seriously just can’t even.

Nora is getting so big! This little girl has turned six months old and Aunt Mel couldn’t be more proud. It’s crazy to think that a year ago, I was putting together a July 4th baby announcement video for her parents! I had a really hard time culling this shoot because she’s just so darn cute.  Oh and this was her first experience touching grass.  It was my favorite thing.  Happy half birthday Nora.

Here’s a mini shoot we put together to celebrate.

Check out her left hand. It’s the first touch. Norasixmo-3 Norasixmo-4

Greek Easter, Great Easter

I was chatting to my cute design friend a while ago about the Story Shoots I’ve been doing lately.  We parted ways and a few days later I got a call from her and this time with an excitement in her voice to match my own.  She had an idea.  Story shoot…Easter… her family is Greek.  Greek Easter.  All these things, all combined into one day. It sounded lovely.

Here are the results.  Beyond the fun of having free reign with photo taking, I was so honored to be included in the festivities.  I felt like family.

Eleni told me that Easter was going to be at her house.  I didn’t know that she would be doing all the cooking. And decorating. And hosting.  I didn’t know how amazing she is.

I like to write, but I’d rather just show you.  The day was beautiful and the sun was dancing all over the yard alongside the children.  The dog was excited, and we all left considerably more plump and pleasant.

So you are currently looking at one of my favorite shoots. The colors, the people… Seriously, there’s just something that starts to stir in me when I get to document people in their homes.  You wouldn’t think it makes a difference, but there is a physical change that happens to people when you bring the camera to them- not vice versa.  They are calm. They smile more.  They even get more creative.  Jason and Jen made my heart happy.  And wouldn’t you know that little baby Nate really likes me? He honestly breaks into a huge grin when I walk into the room.  And this kid has a killer grin that will melt a heart of stone. It did mine anyway. Did I mention anything about these colors?

So here is to Story Shoots at home. Here’s to the Godshall family for letting me in.  Here’s to many more to come!nategodshall-5 nategodshall-9 nategodshall-10 nategodshall-13 nategodshall-20 nategodshall-19 nategodshall-23 nategodshall-25nategodshall-2nategodshall-27 nategodshall-28 nategodshall-34 nategodshall-39 nategodshall-42 nategodshall-44 nategodshall-48 nategodshall-52 nategodshall-53 nategodshall-54
