I fell in love with the storybook feel of my wilderness session with dear friends, the Frederick Family (you can see their dreamy session here), and could hardly wait to assemble their annual family album.
After the first half of our time together, we reconnect with each other as families. In our busy, hectic paced lives, it can be hard to find time to just unplug, reconnect, and build community. Taking in the amazing sights around us and breathing in the fresh, clean air…while we explore new terrain and just seek peace in each others company. It’s a truly beautiful journey I am blessed to be able to enjoy with sweet couples and families like this…such cherished quality time together. It is rejuvenating and refreshing to have that space to enter into.
Capturing their family adventure, as well as some beautiful scenic imagery for them to relive their journey even more through as the years progress, the images from these adventure sessions make the most spectacular memory albums. As I hand-pick the images, I try to re-tell the story so the reader gets to re-live those amazing days as they turn the pages. The photos below are so vivid, you can almost smell the fresh air!
“Being connected to everything has disconnected us from ourselves
and the preciousness of this present moment.
We have to step away to recapture what we need.”
― L.M. Browning
