Mills Family 08

















You may recognize Abe as one of the vocalist of Jericho Road.    I met Abe and his wife Rachel at one of Nick's work parties and was immediately impressed with how fun and friendly they seemed.  I was excited that I was going to get to work with this beautiful family and get to know them better.
I love photographing couples....anytime, but I especially love to photograph couples who have been together for  a long time with a few kids.   I'm not sure why, but after we get settled in with our families and lives, and get real comfortable with our spouses,  we don't really take the opportunity to capture that relationship (in pictures).  I LOVE when I get the chance to do it.  I encourage everyone out there to take the time and effort to be photographed, not just as a family, but as a couple!  Love is beautiful and so easy to communicate in images.
Thank you Abe and Rachel for letting me be a part of your new family memories.  I can't get over how good looking these kids are, and how cute you two are with each other.

Nick and I are taking the kids to Disney World tomorrow, for a few days.  The Mills are kindly letting us stay in their Orlando time share.  We are so excited and I am sooo grateful to you both for such an awesome gift!  SOMEONE HAS FINALLY HEARD MY PLEA FOR SOME SUN AND OCEAN!!  YEAY!  I've been saved!

I was so thrilled to see these photos. You are indeed a true artist to the utmost. For example the one with Mariah holding the two hands and looking at us. The composition is so fantastic. The dark... eyes, opened mouth, her head band, the 2 hands holding hers, and then the little hint of tree in the space. The flower on her band positioned just perfect. THis is truly a prize. I could go on about all the photos this way. The Family one is truly art also. Your treatment of light and dark spaces... the angles... the flow that the eye is directed to take. You are there!!!! Thank you as a grandmother that loves ART along with loving my family. Nancy
