Has it really been ten years since I photographed this family? Wow that was fast! The parents (who look the same as they did back then) reminded me that their boys were 5 and 7 the last time they had professional photos taken. Their eldest is taller than me now and I’m sure the next time we do this their youngest will have passed me up as well. It is such an honor to have a family trust me with their visual memories every year, 2 years, 5 years, or ten. Capturing a family as they grow is the reason why I love doing this still after twenty years in the business.
Both brothers are athletes so naturally we tapped into their athleticism for some shots, and meeting at a location where they had space to run around was key for this session. They even brought their sweet dog for a few fun photos, and I brought my reflector to make sure that his all black face would photograph well. We ended the session with some spontaneous dancing. . . love this family!
