The day before this family photo session was scheduled, I receive a text from Jenny saying she wanted to make sure we took a photo of them in front of their new family VAN. Boy was I excited because I can't say I've done that before! A family van means a new chapter in your life- not 1, but now 2 kids, not 1, but now 2 car seats, along with bigger strollers, more carpools, bigger messes, and so much more. It signifies your family is growing, which is one of the most special times you can endure throughout your life, and being able to capture this time for them left me feeling honored and grateful.
I've known this family for a little over a year now and couldn't be happier to have met them. I've been lucky enough to follow along baby Jonathon's journey into this world, from photographing Jenny when she was pregnant with him, to taking his newborn photos, and now taking family photos in perfect timing for him to make it on his first holiday card. We met at a local park for their family photos and the evening couldn't have gone better. Michael was as playful and happy as a 2 year old should be and Jonathon was the most perfect 3 month old. Before we finished up, we made sure to get the epic photo in front of their new, shiny van and the expression on their faces will tell you they're pretty excited about this new chapter in their life!
