in light of yesterday's post I'd like to introduce to you: my first family session of 2012!
meet alex+jill+lilly+calvin+lucas+faith+patience-joy

i adored this family so much, and I'm sure you will too. I mean, just look at them! =D

when the family  showed up for the session, Jill said to me "I just let the kids kinds dress themselves". I LOVE that. It was just one way for them to bring their personality to the shoot!

Faith and Patience are the most recent members of this family, and I don't think they come any cuter!

 Though these kids are as sweet as they come, don't let that fool you. Lilly, Calvin, and Lucas all are black belts in tae kwon do, and I'm sure Faith and Patience will be joining them soon. They'll be a little ninja family.

Thank you again dear Miller family for working it out for my camera and putting up with my crazy antics. You guys are way precious!

This is Natalya, aka, thee Natalya Simone: opera singer extraordinaire . She's kind of a big deal, kids.

Not only is Natalya a talented singer, but also way pretty and way sweet. She's kinda got the whole "total package" ordeal goin on'

We planned Natalya's session to take place right before sunset time, when the sun makes everything creamy. The light that night was perfecto.

 Can we take a moment to talk about Natalya's skin? Yeah no retouching done to it whatsoever. 
It's that flawless. 

Natalya brought along this great scarf, so I decided to experiment and play with it a little. Natalya went right along with my shenanigans and totally worked it!
 A quick outfit change and Bam!

One thing that pictures won't tell you about Natalya is that she has the sweetest lil' British accent. If I'm being honest, I'm kind of jealous of it...

 Thanks again, Natalya, for putting up with my "tom foolery" and workin' it out for my camera. I can't wait to see all the special things God is going to do through and for you and to watch your career really take off!
