I was looking through the images I took of Emma the other day and came across these two. Emma wanted her daddy to sit with her so I took the opportunity to snap a couple of them together. I have to tell you that this thing, this business, this career, this amazing experience of being a children’s photographer started with him. He encouraged me from the very beginning. He keeps me organized, keeps my files backed up, loads software, he is my technical guru. He is my prop finder. He found the limb for Emma’s valentines, climbed several trees to find the branch for the newborn images, he helped our friends load and haul a full size couch to a field and then waited on stand by to come pick it up again. He is my light tester. He will let me practice new lighting and posing whenever I ask. If I’m trying something new he is always willing to give up an afternoon scouting a new location or testing some idea….always.
If I say, “Boy, I’d like to have that new camera, or wouldn’t that new lens be awesome,” the next day I’ll have e-mails from him showing me the best place to get it or some deal he found while searching.
He’s and incredible dad! We have been married for almost 13 years now and he makes me laugh EVERY DAY! I’m thankful that God allowed us to find each other because I can’t imagine my life without him in it.
