We are Erik and Jennifer Lankford...married for 11 years! We are the proud parents of Isaac Joseph who was born June 15, 2007 and Hadleigh Jane who was born July 15, 2007. They were placed in our home when they were 10 days old and adopted SEPTEMBER 12, 2008. On November 2, 2010 we welcomed Libby Louise into our family and we couldn't be happier. In July of 2012 we welcomed Isaac's biological brother to our family. Jaiden's adoption finalized on Feb 14, 2013. On November 21, 2012 we welcomed Mollie Ryan in to our home to bring us up to 5 children. We live in Aspermont, TX. I have been doing photography for 9 years. I shoot with the CANON 5D Mark II in hopes of buying the 1D eventually. My favorite lenses are the 70-200 2.8 IS and the 85mm prime! I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing families, children, newborns, high school seniors and maternity!!
We had an open house a couple weeks ago so here is what it looked like on the day of!! :) The color is not accurate in a lot of the images, I had left my flash at the studio. A friend of mine helped me come stage it. We painted my bedroom and bathroom, put in all new ceiling fans and took almost all of our pictures up to my studio!! HAHA! My walls are SO bare!! Anyway, the Open House was not very successful but at least we had a clean house!! We will be having another one in October.
Here is a quick blurb my friend came up with about our house if you know anyone who is looking:
Large 2 bed/ 2 bath with additional large home office or sun room. The home features solid surface flooring throughout the home. New paint, recessed lights, exposed beams in the vaulted living room and charming eat-in kitchen. The home features a lush back yard with beautiful shade tree, a two car garage with separate storage room and a large, bright utility room that could double as a craft room.
Last Saturday, September 12, 2009 we CELEBRATED one year that our babies were adopted!! What a FABULOUS year it has been and my how they have grown into such little people. Isaac talks a mile a minute and in FULL COMPLETE sentences. It is so amazing! Hadleigh is just a little Miss Priss. She rules the roost and you would have never thought that when we got her. Ever since she started walking she sure thinks she's the boss.
Thank you to ALL of our friends and family and church members who have supported us during this wonderful time in our lives. You guys all mean so much to us and we are blessed to have you in our lives and the lives of our children.
I had a party at the studio with a girl who does Piggies and Paws and we had lots of friends come and do their feet and hand prints! Check out the site.
While I was inside with all the guests, Mema took the kids (Hadleigh, Isaac and our friend Evan) outside to PLAY in the RAIN!! They had a BLAST. These are some of the umbrellas I have in the studio so they all got one.
In the photo above and the photo below they are saying "Thank you God for the rain!" Isn't that the coolest?
This picture is SO my daughter! She is the FUNNIEST thing.
