Family Session- Family

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

I feel like a lot of my posts have been personal lately, but when your work and your life and your family all come together, it's difficult for these worlds to be separate. My family is the heartbeat of what I do. They have encouraged me and pushed me and believed in me. And with something so personal and intimate like family portraits- you share a part of your life with the photographer so connection is vital. 
It's only natural that clients become friends, and friends become family if there's real passion and connection. 
“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones you accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you you no matter what.”

This family is no different, though I suppose they didn't begin as clients- but as cheerleaders. 
I hold them close to my heart and it was difficult to sort through all the images I took! How do you tell any client you only got a certain number of images? So I did my best to have a critical eye and prepared for an editing marathon. 

I love it when families have their whole extended family as part of the session. Family grows and opens up to let love in. And in Texas, the love is big. 
“Our family is a circle of strength of love with every birth and every union the circle grows.”

Enjoy the circle that makes up this sweet family and a few of my favorites from this session.
