everyday family session | apple valley, minnesota

I know I’ve said it before but I love repeat sessions.  Watching family members grow and change from year-to-year.  It’s a teeny bit sad for me as well – when little ones are now talking and older ones are doing Big Kid things like getting dressed ALL BY THEMSELVES.

This sweet family has a tender spot in my heart.  Kristen and I are scrapbooking friends (though it’s been ages since we’ve had one of our crop nights :(). Her boys remind me so much of my own at that age; I get a huge kick being around them. But this session was different from others we’ve had; the boys were both noticeably different.

Acting older.  Both growing up SO FAST… and that makes me a little bit sad.


I’m reminded once again that time is passing by much faster than I’d like.

Which is exactly why these types of sessions mean so much to me.

I loved how the little guy followed his big brother everywhere, copying pretty much everything he did.  I loved our time at the playground, doing my very best to chase the older one down:

And simply watching them interact as a family.

Playing.  Wrestling.  Kisses and hugs.

Thank you SO MUCH, John and Kristen, for letting me be part of it!
