Summer is here! And so are longer days and more time spent together. But you know what? The days are still going by quickly. The days are still full.
I recently photographed a sweet family in their backyard. When I was finished with the session, mama Staci says to me, “Wow, that was really nice. To have this time together. Just us. Hanging out in the backyard and not doing anything else but that.”
And then I remembered that these sessions are about *more* than the photos. They are about taking time as a family to be together. To set aside dinner prep, weeding, walking the dog…
To just be. Together.
What a beautiful thing to do. And what a special thing to have photos of.
Here are some of my favorites from this sweet family’s summer evening together.
