We have been photographing the Cooley family for so many years, that they have such a special place in our hearts. The following message is from Rita, Captured Moments founder. Please find below a walk through the years with the Cooleys!
My story with the Cooley family began many years ago with a simple gift certificate. The certificate was for newborn photos with me and was given to Missy at her bridal shower just before her older daughter Paige was born. It was such a joy to work with this beautiful mother and her adorable baby with the penetratingly blue eyes. Not long after our first photoshoot, Missy's next two children Bridget and Cort came into the world, and I continued our tradition! By this time, I felt that the Cooleys were just extended family to me. Practically every Christmas and milestone since then we have had the pleasure of documenting the growth and love of this remarkable family. We've had some memorable times, such as the sprinklers going off on a huge cousin shoot... imagine: kids scattering in every direction and us scrambling to grab our equipment! But we got the shot! I could go on, but Missy has always said to me that "Rita gets it". I have always thought that she meant I don't follow the other photographers who do things in a different, more traditional way. I have always simply observed what was happening in front of my lens and "captured" it.
I love this family!
