Sometimes when I take a look at my calendar for the month or week, I am excited for a shoot simply because I get to hang out with a family. Yes, I will get to photograph which I always love, but I also get to know a family better that I may not spend much time with. Photography gives me such an amazing opportunity to get to know families on a more intimate level than I would ever get the chance to do normally.
We attend church with the Cole family and we exchange pleasant hellos and how are yous on Sunday mornings and at other church events. but getting to explore the park with their family and capture their giggles together makes our relationship so much more meaningful. I had a chance to really get to know their little ones and learn what brings out their biggest smiles. For their oldest son I learned that thing is Star Wars and their little guy certainly adores bubbles.
I just love how these pictures capture their family, and it is all because of how comfortable they were during their shoot. They let themselves giggle, laugh, and cuddle. Each person truly has a genuine affection for their other family members and it shows so clearly in these photographs. Thank you so much for letting me capture this crazy and fun season of life with you, Cole Family!
