When I got a call from a friend telling me she wanted to schedule a session for her parents for their 45th anniversary gift I was super excited! We ended up deciding to add the grandkids in at the end… ALL 9 of them! As well as a few individual family shots. So much fun and they sure made my job easy because they are all stunning! Take a peak, I am sure you would all agree!!
This family is pretty amazing. I have know these kiddos since they were in diapers as I was their babysitter for years. I have so many wonderful memories with this family! I remember crafting with the girls (scrapbooking like crazy)… swimming for hours with all of them in their pool… learning all about video games with “little” jonathan (who is not so little now), I remember watching the amazing Matson performances both done by the girls and their entire family at Oscar night. I remember “The Dressmaker and the Queen” story the girls wrote and recorded, which I still have today and have shared with my daughter Bella… I even remember a few not so fun moments when I was babysitting and they all got sick while there parents were across the country in CA. My first experience with kid throw up, haha! Many years have passed since I had connected with their family, unfortunately. As I had a family of my own life just got busy as it does. So I was thrilled when Robin called and invited me to a farewell party for her two younger kiddos, Amanda and Jonathan, who were moving to Arizona in a few weeks. . As well, she was hoping I could grab some photos while I was there of them together. Of course I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to see their family. It was so fun to see everyone.. such a blessing to connect again with such wonderful people. Today is the day they moved. I know mom’s heart is hurting, as is big sis. My heart breaks for them as I dread the day I have to watch my kids move away. As mom’s we spend so much of our life doing everything we can to give our kids our best. We constantly second-guess ourselves and hope that we have done all we can to prepare them for the future. Well, mama bird, it is very clear you have done an amazing job with the 3 of your sweet babies! xxoo
“Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life. No matter what.”
I love how my business has allowed me to keep in touch with old friends. This is the third time I have photographed this wonderful family. And their mom a dear friend of mine from high school and college. So much fun watching her sweet children grow up. Enjoy the photos… you all are stunning!!! xxoo
What a fun night with this gorgeous family! I loved this sweet family.. such handsome men and stunning mom! Enjoy!
It might have thundered during this entire session and it might have been like 2000 % humidity, but somehow we still managed to get such adorable photos of this amazingly gorgeous family. I have known mom for a long time… we actually worked together as lifeguards for years at Beckett! and my little brother actually played soccer with the dad… so when they asked me to photograph their newly family of 3 of course I was thrilled! Such a fun evening! Hope you love them as much as I do!!
