Last week I met this sweet family at a park to photograph them while they played. I can’t believe it’s the fourth time I’ve captured them, the last time being two years ago, when they were a family of four. Now they are a busy family of five. It was so fun to meet their smiley and happy baby and to see how the other two kiddos have grown. They played trucks and climbed and ran and I just tried to capture them just hanging out together as a family. It clouded over as soon as we arrived, but we ended our time together with an amazing sunset. I adore this family and really feel blessed to have been able to photograph them over and over again.
In our pre-session correspondence the mom of this crew told me that she loved the photos from the previous session two years ago because “the pictures most simply represent who we are”. I loved reading that. And I love doing this for families. Capturing a few hours of the real and true. I hope they can look back on these photos and see a little chapter from their story from that busy time in their lives and smile.
Here’s their little chapter, music by Colbie Caillet.
