The Skinners are expecting their first babe and Gwen is glowing with every bit of pregnancy glow as you could imagine. Between all of her sweet smiles at her belly, the love between mom and dad, and the beautiful lighting that day, the shoot truly was dreamy. I had so much fun with these two and how easy they made taking their photos, even when a lab who wasn't theirs came and joined their shoot determined to be adopted by their family. I am so thankful for my time with the Skinners and so excited for this new addition to their family. - Katie Rae

"Getting to witness a family that is filled with joy and friendship is such an honor - and the Johnson family is just that. Upon meeting this family, a few short months ago, I was immediately drawn to Andie and Dan's kindness and just pure fun that makes you want to surround yourself with them. And their daughter Lily has a sassy nature and sweet stare that draws a crowd. I was thrilled when they asked me to capture this all and tell the story of their sweet family.
So, on a dusky Saturday night in Mississippi, I captured the authentic love wrapped in these three. With only one slight setback of a snake on the Johnson's porch (a serious problem in MS), the night really was perfect. Lily ate tootsie rolls in between shots as we all enjoyed the golden hour of the humid south. With Lily just turning two and new adventures in Mississippi to remember, these photo serve as a sweet reminder of the seasons that come. Enjoy." -Katie Rae
