God's Gift to You ~ Fruitland Portrait Photographer

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. ~ Desmond Tutu


It was such a pleasure to photograph this beautiful family. Being teachers, Stuart and Deanna are raising their girls to love learning. And they all enjoy reading together. It was neat to capture something they do every day as a family in a beautiful way for them. One of their favorite books is I Love You Stinky Face, which is a sweet story of the unconditional love of a mother for her son. After hearing the story, I think I'll have to pick it up for my kiddos too!

Deanna is a beautiful expecting mother. She just had that glow. I really enjoyed getting to know her more this year as she was our oldest's teacher. It was fun seeing them all together as a family too; they love each other so much. 

We had a fun time photographing in and around their home. I always enjoy coming to my client's homes and favorite locations, as they tend to be more comfortable and relaxed. We also had some beautiful light that evening during the "Golden hour," my very favorite time to photograph people.

The girls are adorable and are both excited to be big sisters to a baby brother. I was thrilled to get to know them all better during this session. 

So excited for you to welcome a little boy to your family, and can't wait to see you all again for his newborn session!

Have a great weekend! We're finally having some warm spring weather!

I am so blessed that God gave me this beautiful family (beautiful inside and out) as part of my family. The photographs reveal the love they have for one another... as well as the love they have for the little one yet to arrive!
Thank you Maggie, for capturing a special time in their lives and making it 'forever.'

Another precious child on the way, I'm so excited for the Grimes family! I like the pictures by the gate, too. I especially like the one of mom and dad looking at each other, so sweet!!
Great pictures, Maggie!
