Spending time with Jared, Dylan & their parents was at least a year in the making: planning, consulting, emails, in-person hellos, scheduling & lots of patience and understanding. None of us knew when we planned for a June 5th session date that life would give us a wink & a whisper, convincing us that maybe about 6 weeks later would be better, due to circumstances outside everyone's control. And the beautiful thing is their session turned out even more incredible with their extra time to focus on family & summer fun. I mean really, this kind of brotherly love can only be captured after a fun-filled summer of togetherness ;)
Janis told me about her desire to have memories of a fun family & their life in Fairbanks, Alaska - remembering living here & loving here so if they ever do move away, this time of their lives is etched in stone. "I love how we are all kind of 'quirky' but full of love & laughter." And with that, we set out to photograph the M-family & celebrate their life as it is today. How lucky to have a home so full of love!
PS - would you believe our original location had a RACE happening that day?!?! LOL! What are the chances! But we improvised & came up with an even better location ... I mean really, how can you argue with this? Daddy & his boys. That's life. That's happiness. That's a happy life.
