Christine and Matthew are high school sweethearts. Christine told me that it was love at first sight for her, but it took Matt awhile They were inseparable until Christine left for college. They did the long distance thing and Christine graduated college early to be with her guy!
11 years after they started dating and 3 years after they got married Christine and Matthew had Charlotte. She’s a girly girl who loves flowers, princesses, and sparkly shoes! She’s a ball of energy! Spunky, fun, and a sweetheart! It took her a bit to warm up, but once she got going she did she didn’t stop!
Dylan is 8 months old. I love that age! They can sit, but can’t crawl (ie easy to photograph because they can’t move!) and are oh, so happy! As soon as he got out of the car he was all smiles!
I had a ton of fun with the Musial family! Although, we did have a little scare. I shoot in fields all the time and I knew one day I would have a snake encounter. Last Monday was the day. I was shooting cute Dylan and moved to get a different angle. As I was about to stand up something made me look to my left and there was a big, nasty snake a foot away from me! It was white and pink and did I mention BIG? I did my best to not act scared because I didn’t want to scare Charlotte, but I think I jumped a mile high and ran really fast screaming, “There’s a snake! There’s a snake!”. Luckily Matthew knew it was an albino California King snake and that it wasn’t poisonous. But, I’m not going to lie, it scared the crap out of me! Yuck!
I think a lot of people would have scooped their kids up and ran as fast as they could to their cars, but Christine and Matt were totally cool and we went about our session!
Thanks, Christine and Matthew! I had a lot of fun getting to know your family! Here’s your slideshow!
