Ward Family • Sneak Peek!

This beautiful little family is growing right in front of my lens, and I love it! For the third time in 18 months I have captured these sweet girls and their parents having fun and sharing special moments.

For this session we met at the Asheville Botanical Gardens and had a beautiful spring day with sunshine and warm air. As soon as we arrived we took a few minutes to catch up, and I learned that their sweet family is growing! They are expecting a new little one this summer and I couldn’t be more excited for them! Congratulations, Ward family!

To start off our session we walked down the trail next to the welcome center. We stopped along the side of the building for a few shots of the girls in front of the neutral plank siding. Because I see and work with this family often, I’m confident that I can ask the girls to be in photos without their parents right away. Often it’s best to start with full family shots so that the kids remain comfortable, but in this case, I know the girls already know me and are great listeners.

Next we headed across the creek to the large open green space shaded by tall oak trees. Here I asked the girls to hold hands and walk together. They love being together so much that they didn’t think twice about this request! I love this sister love!

After shots of the girls together I asked the entire family to sit on the rock wall nearby for some full family shots. Here the girls found their silliness, but after a few funny shots, they settled in and allowed for some sweet portrait photos.

Before we wrapped up we captured some photos of Jen and Landon, showcasing Jen’s precious baby belly! It is the perfect time in her pregnancy for maternity photos, so we didn’t want to miss it!

As you can tell, I love being with and photographing this fun family. They have a lot of love for one another and easily show it when in front of my camera. I can’t wait for baby to arrive to see them and photograph them again!

Thank you for asking me to capture these moments!
