Wow, what a fun session this was to shoot!

One of this families favorite past times is hiking, so what better way to capture them in their element then to tag along on one!  SO MUCH FUN!!!!  Not only did I get to hang out with an old friend (Julie and I met when our oldest girls were our only babies, 6 years ago) but I also got to capture them being a family, laughing and having fun doing the thing they love to do!

This session was a little out of box for me, it ended up being more of a Lifestyle or Life Inspired session and less of a portraiture session and I have to tell you…… I AM IN LOVE!!!!!!!!  It is something I would love to play around with and incorporate more into my sessions.  It just felt like I got to really know the kids and their personalities (which is something I always strive to capture for the families I photograph) and capture who this family really is when they are together!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do, and keep an eye out for a few future model calls for some Life Inspired sessions that I want to try out this winter!  Some in the clients house and others out and about like this one!

This post will be short on words and heavy on pictures!  We took the kids to Disney back in April, wow so fun, magical, amazing and exhausting!!!!  The kids had the best time and we had a blast watching them and experiencing the magic through their eyes!

when i ask everyone what was their favorite part of the trip Oliver will say meeting Mickey Mouse and Lu will tell you meeting the princesses, Tim loved seeing the kids meet all the characters and me, well I loved eating ice-cream every day hahahah!!!!!

enjoy!

I read this quote on Pinterest the other day-

A GOOD

FRIEND

KNOWS ALL

YOUR STORIES.

A BEST FRIEND

HELPED YOU

WRITE THEM.

man o man has this momma in these pictures helped me write more than a few of my stories:)

I love her and her little family more than I have words to express and I seriously can not wait to meet the little man growing in her belly!

We survived our wild 20’s together

got married around the same time

and are now surviving motherhood together!

and to think of all the stories we still have yet to write!
