Family Session || The Buffaloe's

Each time I shoot the Buffaloe family it brings back so many memories. Alex and Michael have been friends with my sister since they were in high school so we have known each other FOREVER. Now, Alex is an incredible photographer (check her out on instagram: @buffaloephotography) and I have had the privilege to shoot with her a few times! Through this, we have become great friends and now our daughters get to have play dates :)

Watching Alex and Michael love on Hailey Brooke was so much fun. We were even able to get their adorable puppy, Nash, to join in. I love shooting families. Having the opportunity to build relationships, make new friends, and love on all the little ones brings me so much joy.

This was my first shoot as a new mama and I thought I could surely do this shoot with Emma by my side. All the moms out there, go ahead and laugh out loud.  My daughter, Emma, was less than 2 months old, and absolutely starving. Thankfully, my husband was nearby and offered to come give her a bottle and then take her home. When he arrived Emma was screaming, I was trying to shoot the Buffaloe's and I ended up just wanting to shoot my husband--especially when he couldn't find a diaper or a bottle! Don't worry, my husband is an incredible dad and in actuality, he saved the day :) We all survived and learned that new borns at photoshoots, especially when they are hungry, isn't a good idea.

PS. I want Hailey Brooke's outfit.
