Carlisle Kids

Yesterday was heaven. pure heaven.
Ever since I met Kathy Carlisle it's been a great love affair. She is one of those rare souls who ask the deep questions and challenge you to rethink everything you believe. I have wonderful friends in my life but few who will actually sit down and hash out the deep life questions that form who we are. Character. Love. Religion. Passion. LIFE.
Our hang-sessions are like soul food. I never want to be stubborn in my ways and always challenegd to keep an open mind and she helps me acheive that!
So first I met Kathy and then I met her hottie husband Jake! He was Kailee's crush over at BluDomain in early 2007 and I can totally see why. BUT Ive never been one to focus on looks for we all know they fade.... if you see the way he treats his wife and family and his character, you would be inspired.
BUT THEN... I met her kids. The three most beautiful children ever, I fell in love with them months ago. When I got to her house yesterday and was greeted with a "run and jump hug" from her youngest, that just sealed the love in my heart.
Since I met them, I have been DYING to shoot them....can you see why?

I was so giddy the whole shoot!

Shyla, what great images and so much personality. I love everyone of them. I totally hear you about the joy of talking to someone who challenges you every time you talk. It changes you, moves you, and makes you more. It's wonderful. I'm sure you're having a great time purely because of that...and then a lot of bonuses too. You lucky girl!
