I am not sure I have ever laughed quite so much as I did with this awesome family. We met through our kids, who go to the same school, and many shared times of fun and laughter have followed. We met up on an absolutely perfect Thursday evening in nearby West Montrose, at the property of their dear friend and made our way into the patches of light that seemed to filter through the trees everywhere in the most glorious way. Woodpiles, a pond for fishing and a cozy hammock all added to the spectacular backdrop to capture the love of this family.
The thing I love most about photographing families is finding the unique dynamic and vibe that each family brings in front of my camera. This family definitely brings silliness, fun and a relaxed mojo to everything they do together and don’t take life too seriously, which is exactly how I roll too. And can I just say, they executed a tickle fight better than anyone else I have yet met. Future families, the bar is HIGH. We ended the night with an epic dance party, with a 5-year-old dabbing and a lot of booty-shaking. AWESOME.
Thank you all for braving the mosquitos, dodging the thistles and basically putting up with me for two hours. I loved every minute and I am pretty sure we need to do this again. Same time next year?
