This family, well, they are “my people.” We go way back to high school but found each other as “adults” almost ten years ago. Our children are a lot like siblings. My oldest two have been in class with these two boys since they were two years old and, without any doubt, have each others backs in good and bad times. Sometimes, knowing a family and kids so well can make photographing them a challenge. Not this time.
Ryan and Marla were high school sweethearts, and their love and respect for each other can be seen in these photos. I am so glad we took the time for a dance at sunset among the trees. The light was almost as magical as the moment. I adore the they way they are both looking at each other.
Tweens, especially boys, well, they can be tough in general, but even more so to photograph. But, not Jake and Zach. Their personalities are captured perfectly in these photos. Silent confidence plus a little inside joke to make their real smiles come through. As always, I love to photograph and document the details. Zach’s crystal blue eyes and perfect freckles. Jake’s perfect dimples and long lashes. This is them.
