…Jacobs Family | Temperance, MI | Family Session…

jacobs-betherinphotography-16This family is really special to me. We met during our son’s infant swim class three years ago. Our sons quickly became good friends. We don’t live that close anymore, but we still try to find days and places to get together. Some days it is at a park where the kids can feed ducks. Other times it is at REI for some quick errands.We never have long enough time to spend together.

Either way, I really appreciate her. She is always positive. Always smiling and always there for people. She radiates love. He is her biggest supporter and you can tell how proud he is of her by how he talks about her. Their son is sweet as can be. They just welcomed a daughter this year and she is the happiest baby.

Babywearing is a big part of their lives and I was really happy that she wanted to shoot some photos wrapping their little girl. She got me started with woven wraps and I am so thankful. She runs a FB page called Wrapped Around the World that is full of information, advice and suggestions for fellow baby wearers. She is a fellow photographer and I understand and appreciate how important it is to have few photos with you actually in them.

We snuck this session in just before the sun set after spending that afternoon celebrating my son’s birthday. The colors were striking. I had a hard time choosing some favorites.

Here is a sneak peek:

“For better or worse till death do us part
I’ll love you with every beat of my heart”

Two sweet little girls and one adorable new baby brother.

I met the mom at a park play date a few months ago when she was still pregnant with their baby boy. Their girls are my children’s age, which prompted a mom/kid play date. Code for adult conversation while kids dig in a sandbox. The best type of play date.

She is a farm girl – which makes me soooo happy. He is a Physical Therapist. We spent the morning talking about animals,  growing up on a farm, having kids, marriage. It was so refreshing. She has an adorable ETSY shop for cute hats and sewn goods.

They are lindy hoppers!! I get excited about meeting fellow swingers. If only I had some outdoor swing music. Swing is just good for the soul.

While we were taking photos, two little fawns stumbled out into the field and watched us. The girls squealed with excitement.
They picked little bouquets for their mom. The sun was just slipping down below the trees and left a gorgeous glow on everything.

Her Mr. is so happy when he looks at her. I love the one of him laughing. She is stunning and a beautiful person, inside and out.
These three kids are so lucky to have them as parents. Caring, compassionate and patient.

Thank you for sharing your family with me!!
Enjoy.

…Lyn and Jeff & family | Family | Freeland, MI

“You’re my every minute of my everyday……And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, you make me sing..you’re my everything” Michael Bublé.

Life with kids is busy. Sometimes it is hard to just be.  I love it when times slows down just enough that you can just treasure the moment. I got to see one of those moments with this family.

We had about 30 minutes before the sun was gone for the day. They wrapped up in blankets and made this one amazing shoot. They even got to dance to their song, just only for a moment. Big sis loves little sis. Her face lights up when you tell her about their future together and all of the things she will get to do with her. Little sis is one of the happiest babies, ever. Mom and dad? These girls are truly blessed. They are some of the best people I know. They are the type of people you can talk to for HOURS into the early hours of the morning about anything under the sun. Hours of conversations. Hours of laughter. Hours of those cherished moments.

Here you go, Lyn and Jeff. You have one amazing life:

…Rich & Debbie | Family | Temperance, MI…

Rich and Debbie have six of the most beautiful children. They arrived to my house on a perfect afternoon, last week. I thoroughly enjoyed a peak into their lives. The giggles, the sweet little voices.

One of their daughters was instantly my best friend. She was so warm and affectionate just moments after meeting me. One girl is desperately fond of horses, something I understand so well. She wanted to play horses in the open field. One girl loved to pick flowers. The youngest girl wasn’t far behind as they explored and raced through the field. These little ladies love their brother. They each wanted to hold him for pictures. The kids might have played for hours. They played horses. We went on wagon rides. They played ring around the rosy. They laughed.

At one point, the mom and dad stole a quick kiss. One daughter exclaimed, “Oh, so romantic.” They make eleven years of marriage look beautiful.

“The greatest gift you can give your child is another sibling.” Saint Pope John Paul II

…Our family portrait | Temperance, MI…

“It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.” 1 Cor 13:-7-8

These three are my life.

They bring me more joy then I thought possible. We attempted self-family-portraits again this year.  I have been putting these off. Our weekends get so busy and I kept shuffling it toward the bottom. Our neighbor graciously agreed to stand in and provide some assistance. There were giggles, marshmallows, (one adorable pouty face!! that I just had to include…) and tickles. Pictures can only capture glimpses of my sweet babes personalities. I am thankful for them. My husband is quite simply amazing. My rock. He loves us all so much and shows us every day.

…Trampas + Toni & Family | Lifestyle Family session | Felton, PA…

  …

Have you ever met someone that instantly made you feel like family? Maybe it is someone that you may just met, haven’t seen for ten years, don’t talk to but a few times a year, but know you are FAMILY. Once you meet up? You pick up right where you left off. You can spend hours cooking away in the kitchen, playing with the children, reminiscing with the adults. You just feel the love and the connection.

My mom’s side of the family is that family. They are truly very special.

I have never met any other family like this.

Last week, my children, my mother, and myself made a quick road trip (9.5 hours) to Felton, PA. York County Pennsylvania is the land of fantastic peaches, winding roads, gorgeous barns, and my family. We stayed with my uncle, visited with family, and soaked up as much family as physically possible in six days. Tears were shed, necks were hugged, laughter and memories were created.

This particular family?

They are my cousins, but I told Toni I was adopting her as a sister. My son calls them Aunt and Uncle. I love that. Toni’s smile and laugh are infectious. Trampas loves them all fiercely.

Their daughter is the sweetest. She spent hours playing with my kids, helping bathe/dress/feed my kids throughout the week. She is such a beautiful girl, inside and out. Their son? His eyes are incredible. He might be a best friend of my little boy. They referred to each other as “Somebody” and “Gave.” Too cute.

It was drizzling out when we started this session, which matched my mood as it was our last evening together. However, their smiles would warm up anyone. The beautiful colors were almost enchanting.

We had such a wonderful time there, I can’t wait to go back. The kids will be bigger, we will be older, but…..they will be there. Family.

…Joel + Katie & Family | Mini Family Session | Belgrade, MT…

I have known these two for a long time. Do you want a cool story?

He was the second person I met at freshman orientation at Montana State University. A girl who elbowed me in the face (during a high school basketball game) introduced us. (thanks Katy!!) I got him involved in an organization (FOCUS) that helped him meet his wife….years later. After I graduated from MSU, I moved to Fort Collins, Colorado for graduate school. He was selected as a campus missionary at CSU. He helped my find a roommate (Heather), a girl who would later introduce me to my husband. We later convinced Katie to be our roommate and she later became his wife. Weird. Confusing? Awesome. Maybe it makes more sense in my head.

Anyhow.

They will always be some of my most favorite people.

I have many memories with her in the little yellow house in Fort Collins. I will never forget when she drove (HOURS!…while pregnant!!) to be at my shower. To surprise me. Friends don’t get better than her.

They have two of the cutest girls.

Big sis was all about the pictures.

Their eyes are so expressive. I love their matching dresses.

I wish you could have seen how they squealed when there dad got home from work. Sheer joy.

We did a quick mini session while we were on our annual Montana vacation.

Enjoy this amazing family!
