Meet Jessica and Derek, and their two adorable kids. Are they not the cutest family in the universe? I knew both Jess and Derek as co-workers in the past, and I was thrilled when they asked me to take some pictures of their family. They are such nice people, as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.
I absolutely love doing family portraits, because for a couple of hours, I get to be a guest in the lives of others, an insider to the special bonds that they share. And because it’s FUN!
Here the boys are having a blast climbing a “mountain” and the taking a giant leap down!
Look at that big smile as daddy twirls her in the air.
And those soulful eyes…how could you ever say no to those eyes? Jessica has her work cut out for her. ;)
I don’t know what it is that I like so much about this image. Something about it evokes carefree childhood memories for me…
Little Miss ‘O.’ stops to smell the sweet clover blossoms.
Eeee! A whole field of tall grass! Was I in heaven? You bet I was.

Jessica and Derek, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your family life for a little while. I had so much fun!
