Caroline is one of my younger brother’s oldest friends. Which means I’ve known her since she was about 11 (and actually I’ve know her sister since we were like 6) … anyways it makes photographing her growing family particularly near and dear. When she was getting the family ready for the shoot, I asked her what types of photos she envisioned receiving from her shoot, I told her to be more specific because I know the 17 year old Caroline (crazy, boisterous, and head-strong) not this wife and mother who has turned crazy into creative, boisterous into pride, and head-strong into successful, well maybe still a little head-strong She wanted candids that showed love, joy, and laughter… how could I not achieve that when this beautiful family is what I had to work with! We shot in their front yard in Scottsdale and had a blast! Her parents are hired for my next toddler shoot, you should have seen the show they put on! Her adorable daughter is the spitting image of her and her husband is kind, patient, and supportive. It was an honor to help them preserve their memories! Enjoy!
