As soon as I met this gorgeous and outgoing family I knew it was going to be a blast! The black and white color scheme was such a classic but the best part about this family was their collective sense of humor! We spent the majority of the photo session laughing and smiling….(at one point Luke was dangling upside down followed soon after by his sister!) The weather and sunset were absolutely gorgeous and coupled with the amazing location, it was a session to remember.

How did you and your spouse meet?

We met at work.

What is your favorite portrait from your family session?

I have two favorites but the one where we are sitting down as a family and Luke has his arms around Josh’s shoulders with his head to the side and Avery is behind us, Taylor has the biggest smile on her face! love it because it is fun and natural. Then the one where we are standing and holding hands as a family, different then we have done before and just love it!
