Melandi :: Baby / Family

Over the past couple of years I’ve had the privilege to capture memories of Melandi’s family a few times , but those were all before she was born. So naturally we just had to do a photo session with the little lady, not only because she is the latest addition to the family but also because she is the answer to months of prayers for a daughter and little baby sister – and here she is: God’s gift…isn’t she just precious?

Abby & Mandie, with their two sons and daughter Melandi, live on a farm near Cullinan – they cultivate and sell pecan nuts and have the most beautiful orchard of nut trees. Unfortunately it was too cold and windy to take Melandi outside that day, but I’m sure we’ll get another opportunity to let her see her daddy’s work place soon and let her play with the leaves!

The boys were not too interested in the photo session, they’d rather watch TV (I can’t blame them, ha ha!):
