"Joy comes to us in ordinary moments. We risk missing out when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary."
– Brene Brown
I was excited to get to know this family a little bit more. I know the mom a bit, and my daughter's teacher at church was the Dad a little while ago, and I had some limited interactions with their youngest years ago, but I didn't really know them as a whole or their family dynamics. I knew they had really good, kind kids who excel in what they do and are responsible, so I was looking forward to watching them interact together. Their oldest is leaving on a LDS mission to Puerto Rico very soon and was home for a short time when we were able to get together for this session.
It was easy to see right off that bat that this is a pretty close knit family. They connect, they have fun together, and they care about each other. They were respectful to one another and to me and they definitely make me hope that my kids will be similar when they get older.
Sometimes I am unsure about how older kids will respond to the camera and connecting with each other and parents, but we had so much fun and laughed a lot, that my concern was not necessary at all! I am so glad that they trusted me to take their photographs and capture this very special time before things change in their family with their son being gone for two years.
