I’ve known the Buechels awhile – Karli and I actually worked at Target together FOREVER ago when she was pregnant with her first son, Hunter. Ahh, we were so young then. We were pregnant at the same time four years ago. Karli with her daughter April, who is three months older than my son Grayson! We get together from time to time for birthday parties and other events. And this past month I was honored to document Karli’s third pregnancy, with her son Logan, with a family maternity session.
Almost four-year-old April is so spunky and energetic. I suppose those adjectives are pretty repetitive, but more than once I felt amazed by her joyful spirit. She made me laugh out loud more than once. I convinced her that a tiny puppy dog had taken up residence inside the lens of my camera, and she spent a good part of the session “looking” for him. This is an amazing trick, and I’m totally using it with future littles at sessions!
