One of my favorite things about this session, besides getting to know this wonderful family a little better, was watching the closeness, love and banter that happens between all of them. And one of the sweetest moments I’ve ever captured was the one between Shelly (the Mrs.) and her mom as I was taking their photo together. It was clear how much her mom means to her, and since her mom was only visiting, their time together is precious. I love living near my parents so I know that when you are a tight-knit family that it isn’t easy being far away.
Shelly and Matt are two people very much in love, not only with each other but also with their two teenage kids, who are both very close to heading off to college. Our babies are still so little, but I love getting a glimpse of what I
hope to can look forward to when my kiddos are older: a family who loves being together, supports each other, and knows how to collectively love on the people they encounter, just like they did on me.
