Such a gorgeous evening spent with Ryan, Jennifer, and their beautiful family. It's amazing how much I learn each time I am behind the lens. Jen wanted her pictures to showcase candid moments of her children rather than posed, and I found a new love for family portraits. These close up, authentic, and sporadic moments are REAL and I love that. I have learned that there is so much beauty in imperfection. When the boys want to see what's under the bridge...let them. When five deer decide to join, put the session on hold for a moment and enjoy the view. When the boys are willing to run off for a minute, snap some dreamy portraits of mom and dad. These boys are all boy, and they sure do love their baby sister. How could you not? Just look at her! Life is good. This session was good. Thank you, Yates family, for allowing me to capture life. Real. Life.
