When I first started this business nearly five years ago, I struggled to decide what I wanted to really focus on – families or couples. I had equal love for both. I love the love between a couple as they start this journey to the next stage of their life. Yet, I’ve always been around kids – either in my own family or in my work – and couldn’t imagine not having this be a part of my day-to-day. So I decided to do both. Turns out, when wedding clients become family clients is one of my favorite aspects of running a business that serves both couples and families.
When I first met Andrea for her consultation for her 2016 wedding, we talked about the complementary session that is included in my packages, and how it can be adjusted to meet client needs. Some clients use this session for engagement photos, blended families sometimes save it for family photos post-wedding. In Andrea and Mike’s case, they were hoping to expand their family after the wedding, and wanted to set it aside for some (fingers crossed!) newborn photos in the next year. And then came Dakota River.
Andrea and Kenzie scoped out Garfield Park for their family session and with the crazy changes in colors this year, we lucked out with some of the brightest yellows and boldest oranges I’ve seen all season. Andrea and Mike are as giggly as ever together, and I love seeing the bond between Kenzie and Dakota. Coming from a family with a large age gap between siblings, I can fully appreciate the connection they have with one another and I am excited for what their future holds as they age into adulthood.
