this session was a long time coming. emily won this session in a bidding war (in which she put up a fierce fight) at a silent auction and movie screening event almost exactly a year ago (i'm so flattered!). and then she had a baby. and then they bought a house. and then they gutted and redecorated the entire house. and finally, when the backsplash tile was laid, it seemed that everything in her life was settled enough to have me come on out and capture some images of this life they've been working so hard to create together as a family. the house is awesome and they did a great job with it. but even better than that are their darling girls, audrey and claire, and the dancing, baking, cuddling, love they all have for one another.
