This sweet family has allowed me to photograph them for years now! It's been so fun to watch Emma grow from a slightly-bald baby to a walking, dancing, talking, question-asking three year old! She even held my hand for a little bit during their photo session... totally melted my heart. <3 And she also showed off her cool dance moves (seriously, she's got me beat!) and her pretty new nail polish. This little lady sure knows how to be cool!

We met up on Mother's Day to capture some "tangible memories" by photograph, and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening. The sun peaked out from some clouds, the flowers bloomed brilliantly, and the bugs hadn't yet arrived on the scene. Haha! Also, there's nothing like taking family photos on a college campus to instill in your young children a lifetime longing for learning. ;)
