A month before, Mandy had given birth to her third baby girl. When I went to Ruston to take pictures of her family on Saturday, I instantly loved the fact that there were no strict expectations. We just let the girls play. This is my favorite type of photography. The last thing that most kids want to do is obey picture posing commands, and it usually just ends with them being upset or angry and that is usually the last look that you want to capture. I loved seeing how Mama Mandy interacts with her girls. The patience and respect and love that she has for them was so apparent. It was such a pleasure to be able to take some pictures for them that hopefully capture some of that connection. She is everything that a "mama" should be.
