When my husband and I moved into our neighborhood a little over two years ago, The Payne family, more specifically, Karen, Jeremy and Amelia, made a point of welcoming us. They’re the kind of neighbors you love to have. Jeremy and Amelia are always playing in their front yard…baseball, soccer, basketball. Doesn’t matter. They’re outside no matter what. What I love about this family is how amazing these kids are. So kind and thoughtful and everything you hope your own child is. Ashley and I joke that we’re going to send Camden to live with Karen during the summers so he can learn to be as amazing as Amelia and Jeremy are.
This past weekend I photographed The Paynes and their extended family. It’s Karen’s father’s 70th birthday and as a gift, she wanted to give him some family pictures. And I got to meet a few more amazing people in the process.
