This family holds a special place in my heart.
Kasey is a good friend of my sister’s. We’ve all known each other pretty much our whole lives because we all grew up in the same small town.
So around the time I first started trying out my hand at photography in college about 5 years ago, Kasey had her first baby. She asked me to take newborn photos of her new baby boy, Nixxon. A couple of years later, they were pregnant again… This time it was a girl, and they named her Veyda. (I’ve always loved that name since My Girl) Once again, they asked me to take her newborn photos.
It is just so cool to watch a family grow from behind my camera.
Fast forward to fall of 2016, and look at how big these babies are!!! I still can’t get over it. I can’t imagine how Mom and Dad feel!
It’s so amazing to see kids’ personalities develop as they get older. Nixxon is the biggest sweetheart. Veyda is something else! I kept telling her that she looked like a princess in her dress, but she had zero response to that compliment. Then I found out that she’s actually more into super heroes, so I started asking her if she was Spiderman… and you should have seen the reaction!
I laughed so much while I chased her around just attempting to get a photo that was in focus, because we couldn’t get her to stay put for a minute! She is so happy though. And for a brother and sister of that age, they get along like best friends. It’s the cutest thing EVER. This shoot was a fun challenge for me, and I love how the photos turned out because they reflect real life.
