There are no words for how much I love this session! I mean just LOOK at this family. I think you can see it. Katy, Todd and little Cole are so cute I can barely stand it. I ventured to their home a few days after Cole's first birthday and was welcomed with warm smiles and I could just tell that the Prichards were the kind of people who are just genuinely kindhearted and joyful (my favorite kind!!).
A few reasons I'm obsessed with this:
1. The colors! I LEERVE coral and Katy's dress is just like maybe the cutest thing ever (besides Cole, obviously :)
2. The light! The warmth! I sit here typing this in Boone, wearing wool socks and a hoodie and listening to the wind howl and looking out my window at snow that is still on the ground. Blech! But this sunny afternoon in Apex was absolutely the most beautiful ever. The weather was PERFECT. There was a nice breeze and we walked to the park and the light was shining through the LEAVES on the trees. I forgot how much I loved leaves! (In case you can't tell, we've had quite the long and cold and windy winter up here in the mountains).
3. The joy! I mean look at Katy and Todd's faces as they watch their little Cole swinging. That, my friends, is pure joy! And that's the real reason I love these so much. Obviously the light and the coral dresses helped, but that kind of joy would shine through these photos no matter what.
Okay I'll stop rambling now so you guys can just see for yourselves :)
