The Nellist Family|Auburn Family Photographer

DeAnna and I have been friends for many years, we have done ministry together, prayed together, and shared our hearts through the years.  SO when she asked me to capture her family, I was honored!  We talked through what she was looking for, how she wanted to capture her family and where.  I am SO glad we decided on Old Town Auburn.  With it’s mix of the courthouse, brick buildings, AND mature trees, I knew it would be perfect!

This is seriously a SWEET family!  I just loved capturing them, and they were up for anything!

Something happens when you look into the eyes of the one you love, instantly you either laugh or get dreamy eyed, it’s something I LOVE to  capture and definitely something I LOVE to look back on myself.  Those hard days come, and in one simple glance you can see the one you chose, either in person or in a photograph, and at least for me it makes my insides smile :-131019Nellist_03_Blog

These two LOVE each other, the difference in age doesn’t matter.  They are there for each other, and Zi feels SO much more comfortable with her by his side 🙂131019Nellist_05_Blog

Lily is taking martial arts and was more than happy to show me some moves.  I was so excited to capture both her sweet and fun side!

This guy was not sure about being the only one in front of the camera for these, but look at those sweet eyes..

THIS is one of my favorites!  That wall is my favorite, and this family’s ease in front of the camera makes it perfect 🙂131019Nellist_17_Blog131019Nellist_20_Blog
