Have you ever just heard someone’s voice and known that you’d instantly like them?  I told that to Natalie after she left me a sweet voicemail telling me she wanted to book a session.  I’ve never really said that before, but I could sense so much goodness, joy, and beauty in her voice that when she showed up for our session at my house, I wasn’t at all shocked that she was beautiful.

It was wonderful to spend time with one of the happiest babies I may have ever met, Luke, a miracle for this family.  He was captivated by my camera, he couldn’t keep his eyes off me which made the session as we photographers all know, that much easier.  I was also happy that Steve was able to pop in at the end of the session after work, completing this darling session that I am happy to share with you.

I decided to leave the winter grass long in the backyard, which in the end, confirmed it was a splendid idea.

Natalie, Steve and Luke, may God continually bless you and your wonderful family.  Your lives are a true a testimony of the goodness of God.

Equipment used: Canon 5D Mark II / 50mm f/1.2L / 85 f/1.8EF / 35mm f/1.4 L

Diana Elizabeth says if all little babies were like Luke, Diana would go back to shooting the tiny tots all day.  Having grandma around to help during the session was most definitely advantageous.
