Lincoln, Nebraska | Family Photography
Guest post by Jolie Vega, EHP Associate Photographer
I have looked at these photos more times I care to admit over the past month! This particular photo shoot was special for many reasons. Around this particular time of year five years ago, my husband and I were at this very location, in these same halls saying our vows in front of our closest friends and family members!
Five years later and we have Ayden (my stepson, not pictured), Aviana (the wild and free spirited little girl pictured) and two children waiting for us in Heaven. We’ve had lots of ups, lots of downs, and lots of beautifully ordinary moments in between over these years.
These photos are also special because of the woman behind the camera – Emily! As an associate photographer at Emily Hardy Photography, it was a unique experience getting to witness Emily’s style, creativity, and easygoing charm as a client.
Emily did a wonderful job making use of the beautiful natural light that the capitol building has to offer, and she did an amazing job of capturing my daughter’s personality and the special bond between her and her dad. She also captured some sweet moments of my husband and I that accurately reflected our relationship which often consists of him making me laugh (mostly AT him).
Just a few weeks after these photos were taken my husband was deployed. Although we couldn’t spend our anniversary together, we both found comfort and joy in looking at these photos. These are the kind of moments I look forward to having with him again soon!
