October 19, 2013 ~ Titusville, FL ~ Family Session: The Flakes 
Back in September, my sweet friend Ashley wrote me a message on Facebook, asking if I would shoot some family photos for them. I went back and forth and back and forth and then wrote back a very excited and lip-biting “YES!”. And then I hyperventilated for a while. I’ve known Ashley since I was in my early teens, we grew up in the same homeschool association, and it was always fun being friends with another redhead. 😉 
So we scheduled the shoot, messaged ideas back and forth, and then that evening, 1 hour before the photoshoot, it went from brilliantly sunny, to complete cloud cover. I was standing next to a window and one minute it was sunny, next minute, no sun. I panicked and ran outside to look….clouds, clouds, and more clouds. I started praying up a storm and running through Plan B on lighting and drove to the location, and about 10 minutes before we started shooting, the clouds broke apart and poured the most amazing, unbelievably golden “glory light” that the South is so famous for….
all over everywhere. It was perfection! 
I was giddy with joy and so thankful! We had 40 minutes of glorious light, I’m serious…every time I turned around for another photo and checked my settings, I was stunned by how perfect it was. And having the easiest and cutest little family to take pictures of didn’t hurt either! I’m so thankful and feel blessed to have met up with the Flake family to take these photos! 
I hope you enjoy their brilliant smiles, their incredible joy and all our sweet fun! 
With love,
