“Johnny, Johnny, come ride in my car!!”
Well…this certainly wasn’t how most of our family lifestyle sessions ended, that’s for sure. Never once had a client begged Jon to ride home with them, let alone called him by an affectionate pet name, ‘Johnny!’ Had the client not been the most adorable little 3 year old boy, Ethan, it had the potential to be a little awkward! He and Jon became best buds during our time with the Bernhardt family!
This family was amazing all the way around! Not only were they styled as if they had just walked out of a magazine spread, they came with the most important thing of all – JOY! From the moment we met Adam and Courtney, we could feel the excitement and joy they were bringing to our time together. Family lifestyle sessions can be tricky. Kids don’t always have as much interest in family photos as mom and dad do! So showing up with patience and joy is crucial for a successful family session. Adam and Courtney kept smiles on their faces, even in the cold chill of the evening that made Kylee’s lips turn purple! As Sawyer’s diaper fell off mid-stride, they still laughed and enjoyed the moment. Their happiness is what made our time together so memorable!
Adam and Courtney, we feel so grateful to have met your family! We couldn’t have hoped for a better giveaway winner, and walked away from our time together feeling so blessed to have been able to work with your family! You guys are all so adorable and we just can’t get enough of you all!
