It’s been a while since I’ve picked up my camera to photograph a family. After the longest pregnancy in history, which included 10 weeks of bed rest + 6 weeks of hospital bed rest, the twinkies were born in May & are perfect. They will be 3 months this weekend! It was time for Mama to get back into her love of photography. There was no better way to do this than to photograph a fellow photographer | friend | soul sister | kindred spirit. Maren has taken our family photos for the last 2 years, and we love them so much. After I had the audacity to get pregnant with twins, her family’s photographs were put on the back burner until I was able to get back into the swing of things. For something other than the typical Colorado backdrop, we opted for the Boulder County Fair, and had a blast! We rode rides, ate cotton candy & drank $7 beers. It was perfect!
As your family grows, new, updated photos are a must. I’m a big believer in getting everyone together once a year for family photos. Inevitably, someone will have a stain on their shirt, a scratch on their face, or someone will be in tears at some point. It’s all part of the fun. I met Hannah a couple of years ago at church when we each just had 1 little rugrat a piece. We would get together every week & do an intensive Bible study together while our kids ran around & made messes. We may not have learned much, but our kids had a blast tearing that room up. Just a couple years later, she now has Amy. And Amy is a sweet, smiley, happy baby girl. She was such a joy to photograph. Evan is all boy. Stomping in the mud, waving sticks in the air – he is a boy through & through. Our first scheduled session was rained out, but our second option wound up being a perfect, fall day. The trees were still boasting yellows and oranges, and the sun was shining beautifully. It was the perfect day for family photos! Thank you, Hannah, for asking me to capture your family at this exact moment. I hope you enjoy them all!
