The Hines Family | Fall Mini Session | Hartford, OH


Oh Lydia.

Kasey is a friend, and she brings her family to me, faithfully, year after year, since Lyd [now 3] was in the womb. I praise her for coming back each time; Lydia does NOT like being photographed by me. I lucked out once, when her baby sister was brand new and Lydia was baby-struck by her; they had the CUTEST sister pictures at Layla’s newborn session. Honestly, even I’m not sure how I get these pictures of Lydia sometimes- I impress myself when she’s my client- HA!

I am beyond grateful for this mama and her little fam. Not only for their continued support in my business, but just for being a light in my own life, and in the universe. Seriously, Kasey is pure sunshine! Happy Holidays Hines’!


This day was cold and rainy- one of the first really cold days of the season and these poor babies did do their best for me. Lydia wore a mustard maxi skirt that couldn’t have looked better in the orchard and everyone was perfectly coordinated to match her [because I’m a mom, too, and I KNOW everyone’s outfits were planned around Lyd’s killer lace and maxi digs] ;) With the cold, the rain, a newborn and toddler probs, Kasey and Lydia, hands down, managed to pull off the cutest photo of the day… heart-eye emoji please!


Thank you Brandon for always being a trooper, Kasey for supporting me, Lydia for challenging me and Layla [mama and I are begging] please turn out to be a total ham for us!
