From the minute the Thomases arrived for their session, the children were chatting up a storm. They were some of the most social little ones I’ve photographed, and they hadn’t even really met me before! I’ve been attending a bit more regularly the church where their dad, Justin Thomas, is the pastor.

So I had seen the kids running around the church before and after service, but I don’t think they recognized me. I was just another big adult from church in the sea of adults they needed to wade through to get to their familiar friends and adventures. So really, I’m just legs to their smaller stature. 🙂

But after doing the session, we have become fast friends. Everly now greets me every time she sees me with “You took my pictures!” So now, I am the legs with a camera. I’ll take it.

And little Verity has spoken to me about her musical interests. A few weeks ago at church, she said “I wike deff tuk,” and I couldn’t make out what she was saying. After three focused tries, I realized she was saying “I like Daft Punk!” That, combined with her darling cheeks that seem to take up her whole face, I can hardly stand the cuteness.

Enjoy the snaps of this beautiful family! And come to Calvary the Hill on Capitol Hill, 6pm Sundays if you’re interested in hearing some great teaching and meeting some kind people like the Thomases….
