little dancing feet across the wooden floorboards.
baby laughter & toddler giggles filling each room.
makin’ valentines. sharing bear hugs. endless amounts of snuggles.
a glimpse into the beautiful, simple life of the watters family.
 
“Like most people, I could say [the most beautiful moment of my life was]…my wedding, the birth of my children, the purchase of our first home, making love for the first time, etc. & while all those things were great & beautiful, they are not the ones I think of first. The ones I think of first are: living in Cedar Falls on Main St. & going to half price martinis at the Stuffed Olive every Monday night & just talking about life. Or walking on the beach in Mexico with my family as Stella dips her toes in the water & continually talks to herself about which way everyone should walk. “Stella go this way, Dad goes this way, Baby Brudder go this way, & Mom go this way.” Or even riding bikes through the English Gardens in Munich with Amanda; stopping to have some awesome sausage, sauerkraut, & a giant mug of beer. These are the moments most beautiful to me, because they are ours & no one elses.” – andrew
 
“andrew & i have a little saying, “T.I.H. {this is home}” we whisper it in each other’s ears when we feel most connected to one another, most at home. it is one of our many ways of saying “i love you” & tells the other person that we are feeling happy, cozy, calm, & loved. so to me, home means family.” – amanda

  8. This photo session captures all of my hopes and dreams of photography! I am in the process of transitioning to lifestyle photography for baby sessions and THIS is what I want to do. LOVE the relaxed and fun atmosphere present in so many of these shots, the laughter, and the sweet moments. I literally feel like i’ve spent a day with this sweet family from the photos! AMAZING WORK! I would love to ask a few more questions and get some tips from you on getting started in this lifestyle photography world if you have a chance! Thanks again!
