FAMILY SESSION: Fotog Friends

I'm not really sure if I remember how I came across her name?

Perhaps I had seen her work in the faces of my friends...or maybe it had to do with that whole "7 degrees from Kevin Bacon thing" 

I don't know...

but, the fact of the matter is that I knew of her...and then I did what any sane & normal person would do with access to social media and hand held devices...

I stalked her...

and Oh I wasn't disappointed...

She posts about her kids and her adventures...
She's incredibly witty and hilariously funny...
Her posts read like a memoir..and you feel like you're just 'coming home' as you step over the welcome mat into the life of Cathy Blackstone...

It's her talent for photography that also reeled me in...
She has that same passion for people and moments and "carpe diem" that is evident in her photojournalistic style...You can check it out on her Facebook Page HERE

She pours herself not only into her clients, but I got a sneak peek into her home life at our recent family session of which I was humbled to photograph...

and that, my friends, is where she ultimately shines...

She & her husband have done this amazing job of raising FOUR pretty chill kids...

I'm sure they are like any other family with ups and downs...but what struck me the most...maybe a "word", if you will, that stood out to me as I watched them all together...

LOYALTY

The kind that says, "I've always got your back"
And...with it, I think there is a sense of pride in the BELONGING...

each one has a strong sense of belonging and knowing that they are held closely in the hearts of each family member...

I"m getting all sappy and sentimental...

They are the All-American family...the fun-loving, go with the flow, everyone's included, take a risk, be yourself, lend a hand, go for the gold, group hug type of family...

and I'm lucky enough to know them!!!
