I got to photograph this family just after their twins turned one!  As I was portfolio building I photographed the twins as newborns last year. Its so fun to watch them grow over the first year! Children Photography | www.amylorrainephotography.com

Older brothers and sisters are a big help at sessions. They always know the silly things to do to get their siblings to smile and laugh.

Okay.. So I lied… | AmyLorrainePhotography.com

I said after my brothers wedding I would have awesome pictures.. And while I have a few images from the weekend. I realized… I didn’t take a picture of the happy couple. Well, minus the few I snapped with my iPhone. Truth is, I wanted to enjoy myself, and while I enjoy taking photographs, it was nice not worrying about taking pictures. They hired the wonderful Michelle, who is the owner and photographer of Dimery Photography! So I left it to the professional! She also gave me permission to share the sneak peak which we all LOVE. We can’t wait to see the rest!

Happy Mothers Day | AmyLorrainePhotography.com

This post is dedicated to my¬†Mom. I have been blessed with the best and most supportive mom a girl could want. Although I’ve caught on to her infamous.. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm just going to run into Walmart real quick.. I‚Äôll just be a minute‚ÄĚ line but I’ve learned the problem is that people like her and she‚Äôs friends with many. She even somehow manages to make friends in a ‚Äúquick‚ÄĚ Walmart run with complete strangers.

Marvelous Mentionable Momma's | www.amylorrainephotography.com

She has blessed my siblings and me with a pretty awesome upbringing. (I do have to credit my dad as well but its not fathers day.. now is it?) She was a stay at home mom and would help out with our preschool classes as well. It¬†wasn’t¬†until she was pregnant with my sister that our church¬†asked her to be in charge of the ‚Äúplaygroup‚ÄĚ which turned into Little Lambs Preschool and she is still the Director. She also is my favorite assistant to help with my photo shoots and those of you have already had sessions with me, know how awesome she is with kids.
