I’ve been photographing this wonderful family for the last few years and when they told me they’d be moving across the country only a few days after their photography session, I thought we needed to make this one extra special. We picked a pretty spot by the river at my favorite time of year when the yellow irises are blooming and the ducklings are swimming circles at our feet. With four kids (including twins) we always have a blast and I’m grateful to Dad for having the energy (and amazing strength) to help me get shots like this one:

This family is such a TEAM. The kids love to help and they seem to have their own language — everyone just gets each other.

I live and die for hugs like these!

All four kids smiling and no head-swaps! Yes!

These girls can look this cute for a full session and come back for more.

As you can imagine, there was a full-on running race down the hill right after this picture was taken.

And our parting shot, because, why not???

Here’s a recent review to share with you: “We ABSOLUTELY LOVE the photos.  All day yesterday, different members called us with tears, laughter, amazement and joy over how you captured expressions, relationships, stories and radiant light all with jaw-dropping clarity and color!   WOW!  The consensus is that these are THE BEST photographs of our family- ever!  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your creating lasting memories with such artistic subtly, drawing out the best of this family.   You have such talent, Jill.” — Murray M.
