summer lifestyle favorites

A few weeks ago we did a summer lifestyle session with our amazing photographer, Ashley, who has been photographing Dustin and I since we were engaged in 2011. A wedding, two babies and many sessions later she just has a way of bringing my vision to life every time. 

I really wanted this session to reflect our family in this season and the playfulness of the girls at each of their ages. Olivia (3 years) and Penelope (10 months) have so many similarities and are both so silly, though Poppy almost always has a serious look on her face, which I love. 

Olivia is our free spirit, wild at heart but so tender and sensitive, always telling me she loves me and wanting to snuggle and hold hands. Penelope has the sweetest little features, big blue eyes like her big sister and such a fun personality that we get to see more of every day. 

I wanted this session to feel natural, unposed and just really warm and candid. As our family grows, these sessions just get better and better. I remember last summer having done our maternity photos at sunset and loving them so much, but having these photos with both our little girls takes the cake for my favorite session yet. 

Here are a few favorites below.

Do you do photo sessions every summer?! They are one of my favorite parts of the year! I've already started planning our next one this Fall to celebrate Poppy turning one, time is flying!
