Family is everything. I think regardless of what makes people unique or different, no matter what a person’s religion or politics are, one thing we can all agree on is the importance of family <3 Whether it is the friendships we have with our cousins, or the bonds we build with our grandparents, or the way aunts and uncles become friends, mentors and cheerleaders, and lets not forget the bond we have with our parents. The connections and love run so deep, sometimes farther than any of us can imagine. It’s amazing how quickly the years can pass by and before you know it, you are looking back on your whole life. Before you know it, you have kids, and they have kids, and they have kids! It’s a beautiful thing to experience, and we have the honor of documenting and capturing those moments and connections in ways that preserve them forever. What could be more beautiful than that??

When Kourtnie let me know she wanted us to photograph her extended family in honor of her grandfather’s 90th birthday, those butterflies and feelings came rushing over us. How amazing is it to have your family together to celebrate the man who held it all together and made it all possible? The day of our photo session arrived, and the weather did not want to cooperate, as was the story for most of 2021! A little rain couldn’t stop us from having a great time, and that we did! Lots of jokes were told and laughs were had. It did not take long for me to see that this family knows how to have fun, and it was such a treat having fun with them! As we walked around the property I could see why it was so special to them. Beautiful views and rolling hills make for a kids dream, full of adventures and climbing trees. Not only that, but the cows on the property stayed close by and hung out with us the whole time. Such fun and curious animals, it was like they were just part of the family hanging out with us and sending good vibes! I could see why anyone would absolutely adore growing up here. 

After the session ended and the chatting finally tapered off, we headed home with our hearts feeling full. Family has a way of doing that to a person <3
