When I was first contacted by this fun little family, I asked, as I often do, if there were any special requests they wanted me to keep in mind while planning their session. I was told, “Our son likes to run and climb and jump off of things,” and so while exploring locations, I was looking for just that. What I loved so much about this session though, is that it wasn’t just their son who was keen to run, climb and jump, but mom and dad were game for everything I threw at them. Climbing trees and running along the shore and wading out to rocks that felt like islands, we all had a blast capturing the spirit of their adventurous little family. You could sense that this was a perfect example of who they were as a unit; always looking for ways to share in the fun with each other. As the sun set on our session, I was filled with gratitude that this family asked me to capture their moments because these are the kinds of families photographers dream of photographing.
