I have photographed this family many times over the years. I even remember having to tie the youngest to a chair when she was just an itty bitty (so she wouldn’t fall off, of course).
Then there was the year the family dog joined us for an adventurous session, yummy fries and shakes in Stillwater a couple of years back, and a hayride at the apple orchard when the kids were much younger. Despite the changes that take place from session-to-session and through the years, I can always count on a few things remaining the same. This pose being one of them:
ALWAYS. And the respectful, fun, and loving way they engage life and each other.
Every single time.
It is an absolute joy to hang out with them.
To see the kids GROWING UP. To spend time around Grant and Carley. To hear stories. And to learn a teeny tiny bit more about them each year.
Thanks again, Grant and Carley, for another memorable session!
