Ah, I adore this family! I have known Amy for about 6 months now as she was my boudoir client first. She has since become a dear, dear friend with a golden heart and the family to match! She spoke so highly of her husband and daughter from the very first time I met her and through other clients she has brought my way (both friends and family), no one has ever had a bad thing to say about them – so to say I was excited to meet them is an understatement!
Our session was actually rained out 3 weeks in a row and then Amy and her daughter Hannah got into a horrible wreck. They were still willing to go through with the shoot but after rain threatened to ruin it anyway, we decided it was best to wait one more week. After all, they were black and blue and swollen with bruises and who wants memories of that?
I was not disappointed one bit when I showed up at the barn the day of their shoot. The shoot took place on her mother in-law’s farm in Winston Salem and the location and weather was perfect. Her husband was just a studly and sweet and kind as she claimed him to be and her daughter Hannah was soft spoken and so, so beautiful! Jade drove in from Greensboro to do Amy’s makeup and we all sat in the barn, surrounded by horses, young girls riding everywhere and talked and laughed. And laughed. And laughed. This family loves to laugh and I have to say, laughing is one of my most favorite simple pleasures!
Amy, thank you SO much for introducing me to your amazing family and they were everything and more you had built them up to be. You guys are such an inspiration to families everywhere and I really had a blast on your shoot! Even when Devi swore your Jeep was made to go through the woods on a 4 wheeler path and I had to sit on your lap, bumping heads because of the rocks and potholes – I still had a blast. I adore yall!
This is how Amy and Devi looked at each other the entire day. LOVE it!
Hannah asked if she could have her horse, Will, in some of the photos. I was so excited and of course I LOVED the idea! Aren’t they beautiful?
The beautiful Mrs. Mecum!
The handsome Mr. Mecum!
The sweet and smart Miss. Mecum.
LOVE this look on Amy’s face. When she talks about Devi and you picture them together, this is what you see.
I love father/daughter moments.
Aren’t they such beautiful women?
