A million years ago when I was an inexperienced “photographer”, dipping my toe in the waters of family photography, the client gods smiled down on me and brought some of the most wonderful people into my life. They invited me into their homes to capture their sweet babies, their beloved families, their dogs, and their entire worlds. And while, all those years ago, I was utterly clueless about the technical side of things, I knew in my bones that what I wanted to photograph was joy. It is at the heart of every moment captured. Joy. So if you’re ever scrolling through my Instagram feed or my blog posts, I hope you walk away feeling just that….joy.
Whenever I photograph the J family, it’s always the happiest moment of my day. The smiles are wide, the spirits are high, and the love is abundant. While I have more of their sessions buried away on packed up external hard drives, these three, linked up below, are some of my favorites. The session shared in this blog post ranks right up there. Because even though these three are smiling ear to ear, it was 40 degrees at 8am. And I love them so much for all of it.
