Chris & RachIn every family portrait session there's a moment when the world fades away, and the family truly sees each other.

Chris and Rach have always been special people to me.  So to be given the privilege to photograph them and their girls meant so much.  Being lovers of the outdoors, it was a perfect fit to pick a location where they could unwind and enjoy the quality of being present with each other.  In every family portrait session there’s a moment when the world fades away, and the family truly sees each other.  I was lucky enough to capture this moment – and it nearly made me cry.  It did make me roar and cheer and jump up and down.  The little girls stopped running for a moment and gazed… and then erupted into spontaneous dancing in the warm last light.  It was all magic from there… and I still grin like an idiot remembering.  Now they can remember too…

 
From Rachel…

You seriously have a beautiful gift! I don’t know any other photographer that uses natural light the way you do. The photos are beautiful and striking – I love them! The kids were really comfortable with you and you have captured who they are so so well – these are such precious memories of all of us – thanks so much. And thanks for lending your shirt 🙂 You went above and beyond!
