I cannot even tell you how much I love this family. I danced with April in high school, and as we have come back in contact, she has been a real friend and inspiration to me. April has been kind enough to share with me some of the heartbreak she has experienced in childbearing, childbirth, losing children, being a single mother, and other things. So when she met this good man, Brady, and they decided to blend their families, I was OVER THE MOON when she asked me to be a part of capturing that experience through photograph.
I had photographed April and her girls together before, but Brady and his son came this time and I was so impressed with the new men in their lives. Photographing these pictures and their wedding day was one of the most touching times I have had behind the camera.
And April is a talented photographer too.
Look at this gorgeous new family. Oh! I love them!!!!!
This was actually their engagement session! April told me they wanted to do their engagements with their new blended family. April and Brady look so good together, and even though the weather was a bit testy, we still got the best images! A little rain and wind did not spoil the mood and everything was so easy going and fun. I would hang out on the Balsers couch all the time if I could. I love them!
April and Brady, I love you just as much now as I did when I first met your new blended family. Thank you thank you thank you for asking me to be a part of it!
I love you guys!
