The Burks: Las Vegas Family Photos

Mar 18, 2013  |  Posted by: Megan Stay

Goodness me, I love this family. Most especially, I love Melanie Burk. She is the most amazing wife and mother and on top of that the fabulous brainchild and creative mastermind behind Fifth & Hazel and one part of the Caravan Shoppe. She was a HUGE part of my giant styled shoot I put together and I’m intensely grateful for her help, talent, and serenity. Believe me, I needed it.

I think the best thing any mother can do before a family shoot is remember, perfection doesn’t exist in anything but your child’s smiles. I’m not a cookie-cutter photographer, I focus on your life. Things get messy, sometimes there are tears, and most of the time there’s fun. I’m so glad that the Burk’s embraced this and rolled with a session that is probably a little more lax and a lot more fun.

You can’t stop a tiny new walker from strutting her stuff, and you shouldn’t have to! Melanie painted a couple walls in her garage and we hung out for a while. It was magic. The smiles were endless, and that was perfection.

Couldn’t skimp on the cute. Maggie loves her some Taylor Swift. Boys watch out, she knows you’re TROUBLE!

Thank you for being so awesome, Burk family!
