About This Session:

This session was inspired by the warm, carefree summer nights we spend with our kids. You know the warm nights when you see your kids playing in nature, picking wildflowers and are just enjoying being a kid? That is the feeling I wanted to convey in this session. I selected a location that was splashed with beautiful golden light and tall, overgrown grasses and wildflowers as far as you could see. I wanted the spot to feel natural, organic, untouched, whimsical... almost like a fairytale. It was so fun to watch the kids play in nature, and hand pick flower bouquets for their parents. The neutral palette this family selected for their photos was perfect, as it provides for such a soft and timeless look. I love how you can feel the warmth of these images as you look at them- the warmth of the gorgeous sunshine, and the warmth of the beautiful bond this family shares. With every passing day, every sunny summer that comes to a close, our babes learn and grow. I'm so grateful I was able to document these moments, for I know they are fleeting. I hope these images can be treasured memories that will last a lifetime.


From the Parents:

"Having a family means new and exciting moments of growth and discovery- all the while seeing familiarity in your children's faces and mannerisms that are the perfect mix of you and your partner. Having a family is the most challenging, yet fulfilling experience and privilege. We are so grateful to have these photographs that capture our family so meaningfully."
