Hildebrand Family Portraits

I drove away from this session totally smiling. Things like sunshine and fall leaves and happy families with plenty of energy and fun make me happy.

Kobie is my amazing hair stylist – she did my hair for my wedding and I couldn’t have been happier with it :) Along with her husband Jeff and adorable girls Annika and Sophie, they attend the same church we do. They’ve been friends with Shane for much longer than I’ve been around, but before I even knew any of them, I got to watch cute little Sophie in the church nursery. Now that the connections are in place…the photos!

Though I’ve been focussing more on weddings and plan to even more so in the coming year, I simply loved this photo shoot. Kobie said in a message to me later on, “super fun, kids were happy, parents were happy.” That makes my day. We played, we skipped, and we got to document a family that loves each other and allows it to show.

Thank you, Hildebrand family :) And Kobie, can’t wait to see you again, my roots need your attention ;)

This is why I love Fall!

A little shoe love…

I think this one of the girls is my favourite…

But this one is pretty special too.

    Mikaela, I’m so in love with this photoshoot, the colors are simply amazing!

    I’ve been a fan of your work for a few months now, and was wondering if I could mail you and Shane a real Russian Christmas post card? Please email me your addy, I’d be happy to make you smile and send some “paper love” from Moscow! :-)ReplyCancel
