John + Bobbi’s beautiful family

Despite my best efforts to slow time down, summer is spinning by in a whirlwind of tiny, wonderful moments.  What makes it a harder pill to swallow is that being an adult pulls me away from the things I love most; like spending time at my favorite lake in the whole world.

Growing up,  the rules of summer were simple: Enjoy every drop of every summer’s day until the star-filled evening breeze force your eyelids closed.

As I get older, I find myself longing for those summers…But at the same time, I am thankful for how life is changing.  Friends are getting married, following their dreams and starting families.  Take two of my favorite people, John and Bobbi. It’s hard to believe that they are on baby #2! It seems like just yesterday that I was shooting their wedding… what was it, seven years ago?

I am so grateful that I get to capture their growing family in the same place they exchanged their vows — at John’s parent’s home, nestled between acres and acres of gorgeous farm land.

My favorite thing, perhaps is that even though we are getting older and we move farther away — this corner of our world stays the same. The land is just as lush and John’s mom’s raspberry pie is JUST AS AMAZING AS IT ALWAYS WAS and no matter how far away we get and no matter how busy we become, I am so thankful to be able to capture these tiny, wonderful moments on film.
