A Party of Hearty Harrises

If there were a family that were to truly carry love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, as close to how Jesus did as possible, this would be the family. I am always in awe of how well-behaved Jake and Liam are, and how even-tempered Rick and Amy are. The two are wonderful parents and have a Christ-centered perspective, helping to form a healthy and pleasant family atmosphere. (CLICK ON THE PHOTOS BELOW TO SEE FULL IMAGES)

Oh and...REALLY? It MUST be against some law to look this good AND be a mom. For real. Amy Harris is just so beautiful, both inside and out! She is one of those people that brings out the best in others, and is also very motivated. She NEVER does anything half-way.

 Look at how wonderful this family is! Amazing how one can tell that just by looking at these pictures!

 Willamette was a great venue choice...and ALL AMY'S IDEA :) Great choice, I must say! Along this adventure, Rick told me that being there reminded him of an Ivy League School. The place is HUGE! I'm glad I got there early so I could scope out the best spots for shooting...but I didn't even go back far enough to see this huge, amazing, looming building! I like it.

 This tree was so much fun. And it was as if that bench was reserved specifically for this family. I think I am in love with this spot the most out of any that we visited.
 I loved doing shots with this mirror. Something I've never tried before, and kind of weird and interesting for both me and the fam! But it worked out! Pretty clever & snazzy result, huh?

                           Lastly, "Liam and Dad". :) I thought this was a cute one to end on a happy note!

 Toodles, Photogenique Watch! Until next time...

  1. Wow! Cool pictures...wish I could convince my family to do that! But they don't like doing family pictures! :(

  2. Very nice hun, I know you are amazing at what you do! I like how you learned to do group/family photo shoots! and the mirror pic was cool :) YOU are a great girlfriend and an amazing artist

  3. Wow, you made us look GOOD!!! We had fun--you are so super creative! Thank you for your very kind words. I hope we can even half-way live up to them! Rick says he wishes he had the energy to blog and post comments on blogs...hee hee...but he really did enjoy the pictures and our time with you. :) Great work. God bless as you keep using the gifts He has given you.

  4. SO beautiful! I wanna do pictures with you SO BAD!

  5. You did such an awesome job on the Christmas pictures of the Harri's family. You are amazing girl!

  6. Great job sis! You have some great pictures there. My favorite is the one with everyone laying in the grass.

  7. @Nate: you'd be surprised what families are willing to do!

    @Katie: aww i wanna do pics with you too, darling! hopefully when you are here (in brooks) monday, I can go over there and see you and take a few ;)

    @Crystal: thank you - you're an amazing woman! you should ask your family if they might be up for this sometime, or even just you and your husband! :)

    @My Holy Solider/Bro: thanks bro! I like that shot too, but i think the tree with the bench shot is my fav <3

    LOVE YOU ALL, thanks for giving feedback!


  8. Oh and Nathan ;) You have not been forgotten. Many thanks goes out to my biggest fan and supporter <3 you are so loved and cherished, and I am glad you believe in my dreams as much as I do.

  9. I agree--an outstanding family. But I am a bit biased since Amy is one of my besties, Liam is a current student of mine, Jake is one of my former students, and Rick...well, he's been my financial advisor, as well as an encouragement and support to our family, and now my son's BB coach. I especially like the mirror photo and the photo of the four of them on the grass--they look so relaxed in that one and like they're truly having a good time. Creative shots. I'd like to see them a little closer up in the tree photo, but overall I think you did an amazing job and chose wisely.

  10. Ever whatch Lord of The Rings? You know the wise tree in the second one? Well that tree reminds me of it. And that reminds me of life change because they showed a clip of the movie, so this by default becomes my favorite picture. It springs up so many good emotions
