There are not enough words to describe how fantastic this session was. The spirit, love, and playfulness of this family was so evident and powerful in person which made capturing it on camera so easy. I have a special connection to the mama of the family, who happened to be one of my teachers in high school. She was a loving and supportive teacher who I viewed more as an aunt-figure than a teacher. It was no surprise that she carries the same wonderful qualities with her family, and it was such a joy to finally meet, admire, and photograph the wonderful people whom she calls family.
