One of my very favorite parts of photography are the opportunities to be with really wonderful people. (I think the grumpy, non-wonderful folks find someone else to take their photos!) I’ve been photographing this beautiful family since Ethan was a baby and they’ve become friends. At the end of our first few sessions, Lauri and I would stand and chat for a while until finally we decided to get together. Every opportunity we’ve had to hang out has been such fun and confirmed in me that we hold a whole lot of similar values in how we’re raising our kiddos and how we function plus she has the best laugh. Lauri’s been a part of my photography classes and it’s been such a fun ride watching her beautifully document their family. I love too that she values being in pictures which is why it’s a treat to photograph them as a family.
This mini session was a snap and you can imagine how I was eating up Ethan and his grin!
