The Mataele Family

When I was first contacted by Sasha, the mother of this beautiful family, her text wrote "Hi LoyAnn, I've seen all your pictures and you pass the test, wondering if you could schedule my family for some pictures." I couldn't help but laugh, I was laughing because I was glad I'd passed someone test.. lol.. Thanks for the compliment Sasha it really really means a lot..
After 2 weather cancellations.. I am happy to finally say... Meet the Mataele family... They are such a young, beautiful family and they were a joy to photograph. The baby (and the parents) endured the cold to get through this photo shoot (the mom really needed them for Christmas gifts.) I love to photograph new families they are in their growing stages with each other and with being a parent, so they always look to each other with a "Am I doing this right" type of look.. Lona & Sasha may you two always look to each other for help and may the other one always look back to help. Your son is lucky to have you both as parents and so is your "Almost here" son, ( If you cant tell Sasha is pregnant with their 2nd son..)..
Thanks for trusting me with your first official family photos I hope you like them as much I do..

Mike3 + Brodi3 = Eternity

Brodi you are so beautiful...

You have to give it up for the girlfriend that will fly & help you move all the way from Australia and stay for your wedding to be the maid of honor, and then watch all 6 kids while you go on your honeymoon...

This story seems like one out of a fairytale book, you know the one where he
has 3 kids and is a single parent and she has 3 kids and is a single parent and they meet via Internet and some friends.. Wait what I meant to say is a fairytale story updated into this century.. (does that make sense because it totally makes sense to me.. lol)
Mike and Brodi, may the Lord bless your union of 2 beautiful families because after meeting you both I truly believe " Your families were meant to become one." May the Lord stand by you both as you become one as a couple and become one perfect family..
Thank you both for allowing me to capture your perfect union.
