The Roaches {family} | Louisville Family Photographer

The Roach family is completely genuine.  From our first emails back and forth, to the morning of their session… genuine to the core.  I knew I’d love them.

Joy told me that her son, Wesley, who was almost one, was a very happy baby.  But that he was growing so fast he wouldn’t be a baby for long and the need for family photos grew more important for her and Scott.  Wesley was, in fact, a very happy little guy.  Bright eyes, big smiles, friendly as could be – I fell for him.  Hard.  (I’ve started a fan club.)  But seeing their family of three together was the best part.  They just fit together perfectly, like a puzzle of people who knew exactly where they’re supposed to be.

Joy had shared with my prior to their photo session that when they were expecting, only Scott knew the gender of their child-to-be.  And as a gift for his wife, he decided to decorate the nursery.  She said that it was an amazing surprise to come home to.  And my heart got a little tighter in my chest knowing that his gesture took more time and energy than most are willing to do, but what a wonderful way to fall in love with your spouse all over again, the day you bring your new baby home.  They’re all head over heels for each other – there’s no other way to explain it.

That face.  That little smile.  Those eyes.  Who wants to join the Wesley Fan Club?

One of my favorites.  Melts my heart.

Happiest. Baby. Ever.  EVER.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet your family, Joy and Scott.  I wish you well and cannot wait to hear about Wesley’s birthday party! xoxo
