During my family sessions, I always ask to take a photo of JUST mom and dad. It's like a mini-mini-mini engagement session. Sometimes the couple's kids are attached to their parent's legs and sometimes they just sit quietly and observe the love their parents share for one another.
Being married with kids is no easy task. We get busy with life, with activities and somehow in the shuffle of everything we sometimes forget that we have a best friend through it all. I love photographing married couples years after their wedding. Their love is strong, real and raw. They have experienced life together and their love has grown stronger. It's a beautiful thing to experience and be able to photograph, especially in the chaos of parenthood.
