This family- I just simply adore them! I have had the pleasure of seeing them grow as a family from the time Nicole was pregnant with their oldest. They really are a family that I hope never moves away, and that I hope to document for many years to come. They are always so laid back and fun, and truly love just loving on each other.
Each year we try and document them in a new location, and Nicole puts so much thought and planning in outfit choices, and in communicating their wishes with me. I love that each year has been so different, but still that same thread of love and connection throughout. I love that this year they chose a mountain location for their family session.
Each of their two children have the most adorable personalities, and seeing those grow has been so much fun. Van seriously has the best smile ever, and has since he was a newborn. His smile just makes you smile, and his personality is just so fun, and outgoing.
Wren, is silly but reserved. She loves her mama and does not get too far from her. She makes me work a little harder for those precious little smiles, but that was definitely easier this year as she has gotten bigger and some of that stranger danger has melted away.
This has been such a big year for them with Shawn retiring from military service after 20 years and joining the workforce as a civilian. They have big things coming their way, stay tuned until the end to see more of the excitement in store for them in 2020.
The day before their session, Nicole texted me to touch base about our session, meeting spot, and snuck in a little secret. I just about died. They had planned on being done with children, but life had other plans. I am so excited for them and what lies in store for 2020, and yes I will be documenting that! This will be the second birth I have shot for them, and I seriously can’t even wait.
So stay tuned for more from this family in 2020.
