Oh goodness, this is a good one, guys. My friend Zach moved away, he got married, they have a darling little boy, and I got to photograph them recently on a return visit to NEBRASKA! It was magical even before the golden glowing sunflowers lit up the landscape along with beautiful Rachel’s smile. Dreamy baby alert! Number one trick to make Elijah smile = dad’s face. That’s not an insult, it’s a huge compliment! He just has such a connection with his daddy. ;) The love between these three is just so good, and I think you can just see how it cycles in this photo. This one’s a favorite, for sure. Elijah. I noticed something awesome about this kid in his expressions – he flips between this serious, observant, furrowed “thinking” brow and a delighted joy. Juuuuuust a bit reminiscent of each of his parents? I think so. There’s something about their fingers in this one that I love. :) Always one with just mom and dad. Zach & Rachel, it was such an honor to photograph all that makes you guys you. Elijah is the best, and so are you. We miss you already!
