Hannah & Mike’s West Park Indiana Family Session was my first one with little kids since my workshop with BreAnne Weston in Utah! And it was extra special for two reasons! One: TWINS!! They’re SO cute! Two: Hannah is one of my besties! Our friendship goes all the way back to 5th grade! So photographing her little family was such a big deal to me!
I went into their West Park Indiana Family Session being ultra aware of the reason family sessions matter: its not just about the photos, its not just about the parents’ memories… its about their children’s memories too. Their kids are going to grow up remembering how much fun they had with their parents during their yearly family sessions. And at some point, you as a parent aren’t going to be able to give them piggy back rides, play Simon Says with them, or toss them high in the air. It’s not just about the photos, it’s about the actual experiences you share as a family; experiences that will make you stronger and closer as a family.
I knew I was going to love photographing families with littles, but I left their family session feeling like it was my actual calling in life. So, cheers to new beginnings! I’m so happy to be on this little path! And thank you guys SO much for supporting me as I begin to shift my focus towards family photography!
