I’m so excited to finally share a few of the moments shared in a recent session with the Sandstrom’s. You may recall Sara & John as I’ve photographed their two youngest children when they were newborns. I swear it seems like just yesterday when their babies were itty bitty babies…they’re all growing so fast and so it was a treat to have them request to meet with me this fall to set aside some time to capture moments with their entire family. It’s the first time I got to meet their older children and the first time I’ve photographed them all together. Any family with a few children can be a challenge to photograph and I certainly sense the stress that most families face trying to capture moments with several children. We wish for the moments to be perfect but boy is it fun to try to get everyone to cooperate…it’s taken a little time but I’ve learned it’s not worth stressing, in fact, I beg for families to relax and enjoy the moments…they will happen on their own. And if they continue to stress, I just pray they trust me. Thankfully Sara’s family has come to adore the work I’ve done for her family and I sure do enjoy all the moments I’ve captured for them. This session was a fun roller coaster as we had fun keeping the kids attention and cooperation through the entirety of the session, but I think as you’ll see …sometimes you just have to let the moments unfold on their own. Yes, I definitely had a memorable afternoon with this awesome family. Sara & John thanks again for allowing me to capture such special moments with your family…hope the memories continue to make you all smile as much as I found myself smiling reflecting on these moments as I worked on editing them. I hope you all continue to be blessed with many more awesome moments with your beautiful family.
