When I met Sarah and her three children last summer, it didn't take long before I came to adore this family!
The first word I think of when I remember this session is laughter. There was a LOT of laughter! I couldn't help smiling often as I revisited these fun and often hilarious memories of this amazing family! As a former middle school teacher, I enjoyed interacting with Sarah's middle and high school aged kids. Her sons and daughter reminded me of myself at that age in their own ways. Teens can be pretty self-conscious in front of the camera, so I do my very best to make it a fun experience and distract them with my bad jokes. :)
Sarah wasn't afraid to chime in and give her kids a hard time for a laugh either! As the parent, you know your kid best and I try to tune in to what you're doing that tickles their funny bones or makes them smile, and replicate that in my own way. Sarah has a special relationship with each of her kids and it was a blast to document this sweet family. They don't always get to be together, so these photos will be a way to feel close even when they are many miles apart.
