Baby Garrett Fresh 48 Hospital Session

This little guy is baby number 7 for this family, ironically weighing 7lb 7 oz at birth.  When you put 10 kids, 4 adults, and a newborn in a hospital room, it is bound to be a little crazy, but the room was filled with so much love. It was so sweet to see each sibling, and cousin so excited to meet, and hold the newest addition to the family!

In Memory of Grandma.

It is always a pleasure to see family, especially the family you don’t get to see often. Unfortunately, in this case, the circumstances that allowed us all to get together, were not ideal. Three weeks earlier, my grandma was diagnosed with cancer, but it had already spread. Little did we know just how fast she would be taken from us.  Early, June 14th,2015 my mom called to tell me the news, that grandma was gone.  We were planing to come over that week to see her, but instead we came for her funeral.  After 65 years of being together, grandpa now has to figure out a new way to do life without her by his side. It breaks my heart, but I know that God’s timing is perfect. I am thankful that grandma’s suffering is over.

A Morning with the Mitchell's | Documentary Family Photography

In-home Documentary family sessions are my favorite. The more I do them, the more I love them! I love the real moments between loved ones. It is such an honor to be invited into a someones home, to get to capture their day.

Saturday morning I got to drive up to Central Florida to capture Lauren of Lauren Mitchell Photography and her wonderful family. You can check out her awesome work on her website here.

It was a day filled with making Christmas ornaments, a visit to a local farm, and eating lunch downtown.
