I knew the moment I saw the foothills with it’s amazing colors and blue sky that I was going to love taking pictures in them! This darling little family was so adventurous! We had to hike a little, bit but it was so worth it! The light; the colors. There was tickling, laughter, teenage disagreements, and a little ice cream bribery. I love taking family pictures. I love capturing real moments. But one thing that I didn't know I would love - watching the family dynamics. Seeing the love between parent and child. Brother and sister. The tenderness of an older child to the infant. The attentiveness of a doting father to an infant’s injured toe. The sneaky kisses between mom and dad. Watching the love of this family inspired me to be more soft, more playful and more patient.
