I am so excited to finally share a blog post for my dear friend and fellow photographer Jill.  She is a phenomenal wedding photographer, and her work is just GORGEOUS!   Jill and I met during one of our local photography dinners, and have been friends ever since!  It is so nice to have a friend in the photography industry and there are very few days that go by that Jill and I aren't texting or emailing each other with questions or ideas to bounce off one another about our photography businesses!  She has one of the BEST HEARTS and loves her clients and families like I do, and so I think that is why we really seemed to hit it off, and have found such a great friendship!

 I was so excited to swap sessions with her this spring!  She did a jaw dropping amazing job with my family's session,  and I am so glad I got to finally meet her crew and photograph them at my favorite time to photograph families....the GOLDEN HOUR at sunset.  I can't tell you how wonderful her sweet family is, and how much I enjoyed coming out to their home in the country!  Her son has the sweetest smile you will ever see, and his laugh is just INFECTIOUS!  We became BFF's during their session, and I LOVE that he wanted to show me how he could ride his new bike around!  Her sweet daughter was definitely a mamas girl during our session, since it was just before bedtime, but she definitely warmed up to me as the evening went on! And, she LOVES fishy crackers just LIKE ME!!!! LOL!!! So we definitely bonded over FISHY CRACKERS-lol!  And Jill's sweet husband Michael!  Jill and Michael shoot weddings together, and I think that really is something very special and they really have a very special ability that allows them to really capture the beauty of each wedding.  I have to say, Michael looked at Jill so adoringly during their session, and I can tell how much they love one another! It's a really beautiful thing to witness and be able to photograph!  

Jill, my friend, you have a beautiful family and I feel so blessed to have met you and had the opportunity to photograph your sweet crew!  Thank you for capturing just beautiful images of my family, and I am so excited to share these favorites from your session with you!  

XO,

Tara
