Aaron and Jessica’s Family Session with Rey and Sheila

Last Sunday, I had the fabulous opportunity to photograph an amazing family. Aaron and Jessica have been dear friends for a while, and I had originally planned on a couple’s session with them. However, Jessica let me know her dad, Rey, was celebrating his birthday the same day of the photoshoot and asked if it would be okay to take a few portraits with him and his wife, Sheila, for his birthday.

I have to say that I’m so happy for this calendar coincidence; it was such a great session! And I need to say thanks to Kristen, my other assistant, who did an awesome job.

Silliness quickly ensued.

This is the face Aaron made when I told him that his outfit looked like something Doctor Who would wear. And naturally Jessica looks like a very stylish companion :)

We had to include Aaron and Jessica’s sweet puppies, Smee and Amelia!

This session was concluded with 1950’s costumes, and a food fight. Scroll on to the next blog post to see!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving! There are so many countless things to be thankful for this year, and I am thankful for all of you who continue to keep up with my work and believe in me as I further my venture out into the world that is running my own photography business! I am absolutely blessed with the most amazing clients and friends in the world. This week, Nick and I are spending Thanksgiving with his family in Kansas. Expect some photos as I always love taking pictures of the gorgeous landscapes there.
