I have known Steve for a very, very long time.
He used to take piano lessons from my mom, and while his younger brother was getting his share of piano education, Steve and I would play video games. Colico Vision. Ladybug. Yes ... I think I shall post a link HERE to explain just what that was ... See? A LONG time ago ...
His family moved back east and there he met Nicole ... the two were married over a decade ago and hadn't had photos done since their wedding day.
So they were feeling a little out of practice ... but Nicole wasn't afraid :-) ... she's SUCH a hoot ...
They have two daughters. Ashley is the oldest, blond and lovely. She had been practicing her smile prior to our session - and it was like a permanent fixture on her face *grin*. I
And Cierra was the opposite. It took a lot more coaxing to get a smile out of her. But oh my goodness, she's a cutie.
And the two of these princesses together?
The four of them together ... and their little dog too, of course - makes one perfect family. And this is a family who cares about others, who are just genuinely NICE people. In my own life, these two have shown up at our home - after my husband had leg surgery - with treats for our kids, little gifts - thoughtful gifts - for my hubby and I including meals that we could rely on for that week ... It was during a really difficult time for my own little family - and Steve and Nicole came to our rescue when we really needed it.
They are a truly wonderful family.
Steve and Nicole, it was an absolute pleasure hanging with you and your family ... thanks so much for letting me capture you with my lens. I hope you all have such a fantastic summer ...
