This summer, my friend Sarah and her sister in law Jen asked me to photograph their extended family! Sarah and I have known each other for about 8 years, but we really started to get to know each other after she asked me to assist her with a wedding my first year in business. Soon after, I was asking her to second for me and vice versa regularly, to the point where we work most weekends together in the summers. We’ve photographed somewhere around 50 weddings as a team in the last 6 years, which is insane!
Her family is so sweet, and little Josiah was born only a few months before their session. Despite a couple of toddler meltdowns, flowers, bubbles, fruit snacks, and a blanket saved the day! I love to follow little kids around during sessions to get tons of candids of them and play.
Their photos were taken at their parents’ property about 2 hours before sunset, which made for some amazing backlighting through their tree line. It was a little hot since it was early July, but so worth it!
