Summer evenings at the farm - Photographing Moments to Remember in Spring Hill, TN

For years and years, Michelle was someone who I considered a friendly acquaintance....a friendly face of someone I saw often in our small town, but never really got a chance to know that well.  But last year, we ended up being on the Chapman's Retreat Elementary PTO together, and through that, she has become one of my closest friends.  I'm so glad I've gotten the chance to know her better because she really is one of the coolest people I know and her girls are amazing.  She works so hard for our school PTO and we work really well together.  I'm glad she's stuck with me for another year on the PTO.   

Michelle's youngest daughter Lily is our little PTO mascot.  She is two and a half and freaking amazing.  Since she's too young to be in school yet, she is often tagging along as we work.  We feed her lots of pixie sticks when her momma isn't looking and generally do anything she asks of us, including calling her whatever she wants to be called, which is rarely Lily.  She is usually some kind of animal character, ranging from a Lion named Simba Lion Mufasa to a dolphin named Ava.  She will get really angry if you call her the wrong name so we try hard to keep up.  Lily is the boss.  

Chloe is seven and my sweet little buddy.  She's so loving and sensitive.  The photos below of Chloe in the flowers and with the baby chicken are some of my favorites ever because they capture her sweet spirit.   
 
Ashley Smashley is 8 and is such a fun kid...I love seeing her in the hallway at school because she always yells "Hi, Ms. Crystal!" and flashes me a peace sign. I love the photos of Ashely giving me crazy eyes and then laughing her head off.  
 
Emily is the oldest and turns 11 tomorrow.  She is a reader like my Megan and they get a long well.  She's leaving us for middles school this year and that makes me sad.  It makes me a little teary to see how old (and GORGEOUS) she looks in these photos.  
 
Michelle's wonderful mother-in-law has a farm nearby that has been an important part of the girls' childhoods, and Michelle wanted to set up a photo session there to capture some of those lovely memories.  What a wonderful place to be part of these girls lives.  One day they will be so grateful that they had this, and I hope these pictures will remind them of the easygoing summer evenings they spent playing with baby chickens and feeding the goats.  My favorite sessions are where the location is part of the story that I'm trying to capture for the family.  It gives the photos so much more meaning than a session you might have at a portrait studio. 
 
As you can imagine, getting group shots with four active girls is challenging.  But that is exactly why Michelle chose my style of photography.  She said that she wanted to capture candid photos of their family and wasn't stressing over perfectly posed photos of them all smiling at the camera. She agrees with me that the most beautiful moments are not posed.  I hope that I was able to capture the beautiful spirit of this family.
