Photographing this family of five in their very own backyard was such a treat for me. I met Jackie when I was a sophomore in high school and she was in seventh grade. And then I married her brother–so she’s stuck with me for…well, for a VERY long time! Jackie and Brian couldn’t have a more beautiful family, and I’m so glad I got to capture the centerpiece of their life when we were back in Iowa this summer. I actually made two videos of our time together–one of the final portrait images and one that adds a bit of fun, as my husband grabbed a couple of great video interviews of their kids. They will have you in stiches, so be sure to watch for it!
Jackie and Brian have many talents in many things, but the one thing that really stands out is that they are fantastic parents. We just love getting any bit of time with them that we can, and it never seems to be enough! My nephews and niece are just as darling in their little hearts as they look in these pictures. And I love that I finally can add their sweet faces to my children’s gallery of portraits! Here are just a handful of our favorites…
I’d love to visit with you about capturing you or someone you love. Connect with me HERE for details.
