These are the Chessmans. They are the brains, beauty, brawn (and baby) behind Jubilee Farm in Denton, Texas. You know those people are who are creative and kind hearted and hilarious all at the same time? Yeah. Ben and Jade are those people. And baby Elijah? Well, he stole my heart over and over again with that smile, and those suspenders! I felt right at home on this little farm on the hill and had such a great time snapping some photos as the sun went down.
This handsome little family is celebrating 10 years together! Brian and Ruth are two incredibly kind and talented people, (Ruth makes the most beautiful woodwork pieces you've ever seen) and they were basically like top models for me, workin' the camera like nobody's business, as you can see below. Their sweet son Joshua is an endless source of joy and energy, he is one cool little guy! They wanted some photographs in their home that captured their love and their unity as a family, and I think it's safe to say we did just that. I can't wait to invite myself over to see how these photos fit into their lovely home!
I met Melissa when we were freshman at UNT. (Go mean green) It is crazy cool to watch someone grow up, get married and become a Mommy (x4!!!) I'm just astounded by her grace and beauty. Joshua is pretty cool too, make that really cool, he basically knows everything there is to know about cameras and technology so we may or may not nerd out sometimes together. Talk about an adventurous couple, they live with the their, now 4, little ones overseas in Ethiopia and I miss them all the time! So glad I got to catch them on camera over Christmas before they headed back East.
I've known Mitchem for what seems like forever, and got to know Marcy when all three of us got to serve in the 2 year old room for the kids ministry at our church! They're two of the most patient and kind hearted people you will ever meet, Boden is so lucky to call them Mom and Dad. Marcy and Mitchem welcomed this little nugget in August, and you can tell they're in love. Marcy is a fellow photog so the pressure was on, but she was beyond happy with her photos so that felt AWESOME. I loved getting to see his sweet nursery all set up, and their home just felt even more complete with baby Boden in it. As you can see, there was much snuggling going on, just as it should be.
The Voith fam is pretty cute. Even cuter at the white sandy beaches in Florida. Take one look at that little smiling face and you'll be smiling too, her joy is contagious! I had so much fun playing in the sand with this sweet squishy and her parents...does life get any better than sand sun and photos on the southern coast line? No, no it does not.
