In August of 2014 I reached out to Hannah and Kelty (otherwise know as the forces behind The Weaver House) because I knew I wanted to photograph them. We had some mutual friends, I had followed their work, and their Instagram feed, and I couldn't sit by imagining anymore, I needed to make something happen with these ladies. And because sometimes the universe winks a magical nod in my favor, they responded by telling me they'd just been talking about hiring me. They might have even used the term "kindred spirits" in their initial reply. So we scheduled a family session, and then we rescheduled approximately 100 times, because LIFE got in the way it likes to. But in yet another instance of magical timing, when I did finally get my camera on them (and their girls, and their menfolk), it was on what ended up being our last warm and gorgeous October evening, one that would have made Anne Shirley swoon. I drove home from that session thinking that if I hadn't just created some of my best work, I was going to have to question my future as a family photographer.
You can decide for yourself what you think, but I'm pretty damn pleased with these results.
It's delightful when your imaginations come true, isn't it?
