The last time I photographed these guys all together, it was 30 degrees out. I'm not even exaggerating. It was a surprise Christmas gift for their mom and dad. So, the wind and 40-50 something temps were chilly but quite an improvement! I know I say it all the time, but I do love capturing families year after year. I met Sara our first year of teaching. Going through the first year together is like experiencing walking through trauma together...it's a bit bonding, probably because no one but another teacher can even fathom what that's like. ;-) I photographed Sara when she graduated with her Masters in Education. And then her younger siblings. Then it was the whole family, followed soon by Sara and Vern's engagement and wedding and not long after, Ashley's baby (still some of my favorite newborn photos). Thanks for calling me yet again...and thanks for getting together in the Fall and not waiting till December!! Ha!
