So there is quite a bit of history with this photo session. Brandi’s mom Linda was my 1st grade teacher and due to her extreme patience she was able to put up with 6 year old me…lol. Ever since then our family has been very good family friends. After a couple of years we were blessed that they moved just a mile away from us out in the country. Their family has a love for the water, just as mine did. We enjoyed swimming and waterskiing on the river and just plain having good ole fun. I went to high school with Donny and although we didn’t talk very much, we grew up in the small town, so you always knew what everyone was up to anyway 🙂 God blessed these two people and they met, fell in love, and got married. Their life was blessed three more times with their gorgeous and extremely special children Kristen, Kyle, and Kolby. Not only has this couple been through more than anyone could ever imagine at such a young age, but they continue to inspire everyone around them with their love for each other and their family. Love you Taylors and thank you so much for letting me spend some time with your amazing family.
I just can’t get enough of babies!!! I love how they are all so different and unique. The more they grow the more of their own little person they become. I know with my own kiddos they seemed so similiar when they were newborns and now, even though they are only 2 and 8 months, they are such different people. I have room in my heart for both of them and they both can make me laugh for completely different reasons. I really think that there is nothing better than laughing with someone under the age of 5. Makes my heart melt everytime and gives me a serious case of the giggles.
Mister Jayden was so much fun. He definetely took a liking for my beanbag chair and I am pretty sure he could have stayed the night in the park wrapped up in my fleece blanket with mom and his binkie 🙂 I hope everyone enjoys! I know I am enjoying my job for sure!!!
Even though this family are close friends of mine I still am pretty sure I would have had a total blast with them as total strangers. With six kids and two adults we definetely had our hands full! All kiddos were on their best behavior and the pictures turned out great!!!!
I was just sitting here and realized that in less than a month it will be time for my first wedding! I am beyond excited about this. Lately I have been working so hard to get things going at Meagan Opel Photography. Networking on Facebook and with friends trying to build my portfolio up as much as I can. If you know anyone that is interested in getting their pictures taken I am having amazing portfolio building discounts right now. Yesterday I found the perfect time with my boys (between dinner, nap, and getting ready for bed) and got these cute pictures. I am constantly amazed at how much they just are completely in love with each other. I will have to keep these pictures for when they get older so I can show them that they did get along at one point in time 🙂 Enjoy-Meagan!
