Our fourth (of what will be 8 total) sessions, this one we spent in a lovely Wenatchee park. Morning warmth and a perfect, light breeze made the session even more enjoyable. The boys got to play and I got to visit with my friends while we captured another slice of their life. They're moving soon (if you want a cute little house in Quincy, let me know) and I'll miss seeing them as easily as I can now. But we're hoping for yearly visits in their new hometown of Austin, TX and I look forward to seeing this little, vibrant family grow together.

Four generations, three siblings, two continents and one big love for their mom brought all these families together with a desire to capture a bit of THEM. The undefinable essence that makes them a family despite being spread out across the globe. Thank you for trusting me with that goal and letting me spend part of the afternoon with you!
Just a sneak peek. Loved this shot of "all the boys!"
The essence of today's family is when you have members coming and going and schedules and school and sports and parents always on top of it all. I've had the honor of shooting this family multiple times now and it's cool to see them growing and changing and branching out while always staying close. Just like families should.
This is an entry I can really sink my teeth into. Love shooting teens, having two (almost 3!) of my own. The mecurial moods and going-100-directions-at-once can make it a challenge, but when you get that one image that shows a fleeting moment of what it feels like to be a teenager, it seems to stop time. Shows you a glimpse into that world while simultaneously transporting you back to your own time spent in those short, magical years. I know many parents complain that their teens never want to be in photos (mine included) and it can be frustrating, but keep mentioning it every once in awhile. I recently was thrilled when my oldest asked if I would take a few shots.
Below is my entry for I [heart] faces: Celebrating Teen. Just a capture of that interaction that I really loved.
