What are your favorite family moments from your childhood?

One of mine goes like this: We were dropping my oldest sister off at college and stayed at a little mom & pop red brick motel. There was a big grassy area edged with tall trees and it was later in the evening. We played baseball as a family. On the last day of summer, with a light breeze rustling the leaves, the six of us played baseball until the sun went down.

Now that I put more thought into it…where did the bat and the ball come from? Lol my parents must have planned it all along 😉

Sometimes “moments” just happen, sometimes they need some orchestrating, like bringing a bat, ball and gloves with you on a 650 mile trip. We love the everyday – the hugs, the reading a story before bed, the conversations around the dinner table – but we also love the moments that are different, special, out of the ordinary – a special night out, a vacation, or just going on an “adventure” as I like to call activities likes hikes, trying a new park, etc, that we do on days off of school (because we need to do something fun on a day off of school!). Whether it’s the everyday, like a Day in the Life Session, or an extra-special day, I am here to photograph for you.

This family drove the extra mile to get to our location and I hope they had a great time. The leaf fight at the end was slightly orchestrated, but I hope it’s something they will always remember <3
