I am so excited to announce that I am now doing documentary style family sessions!! To photograph families in their own environment is such a treasure. I love capturing real memories as they happen. On this particular morning in the Vidrine household, I was welcomed in with the smells of cinnamon and coffee. Austin and Jon’s adorable little boys played in their room and outside in the leaves. It was so nice to just relax and shoot as things happened. Capturing these special moments makes me feel so blessed and happy to provide proof of these sweet memories.
A word from Austin:
Jon and I met at church while we were in high school. We were both very shy, but all it took was inviting him to my junior prom to start it all off! We started dating my senior year, were engaged my second semester of college, and got married five months later on August 2, 2008!
We rented an apartment our first year of marriage but soon realized we’d like to have a place of our own. We stumbled upon this adorable cottage-style house in the heart of downtown with a yard that felt like you were in the country. Stained concrete counter tops with brick border, bead-board ceilings, claw foot tub, and a beautiful back deck… We were sold! We moved in the weekend of our first Anniversary and couldn’t have been more thrilled. We immediately starting hosting Bible studies, birthday parties, and plenty of coffee & cookie get-togethers.
About six months later, we found out we were pregnant with our first baby! We had our Jude on September 21, 2010 and not too far after that, came Asher on November 22, 2011! From bringing them home from the hospital, to seeing them learn to walk and talk, and then playing endlessly in the backyard, it’s been an adventure full of love.
After realizing that we were outgrowing our house (we’re expecting baby #3 in June!) and that we wanted to be in a different neighborhood, we made the decision to put our house on the market. It sold in under three months!
We lived there a little over five years, and those years were very full. Lots of tears were shed, lots of laughs were had, and lots of lives were touched by us having the opportunity to open up our home to others. For all of this and more, we are so very grateful for the time we had at 1106.
As we’re telling our four year old, we’re going on an adventure! ; )
