I’ve know this family for a pretty long time. I used to watch Ben and Jessica YEEEEARS ago but I won’t talk about how only that makes me feel…Over the last 6+ years and a lot of life, Ilene has become the kind of friend that would probably donate a kidney without hesitation if I needed it
Anyway her son, Ben, is deploying in June so we made sure to do a big family session well before he had to go. We had THE CRAZIEST weather I think I have ever had for a session. There was 15-20 spurts of bright warm sun, light sprinkles, POURING…like DUMPING rain, little hail, HUGE hail…lather, rinse and repeat that cycle in different order. It definitely kept things interesting, especially for the kids. All in all, a good time was had by all.
Towards the end of the session, while we were waiting out one of the downpours, these sweet moments between this little guys and his mama happened and I was really glad I had my camera ready to go and I was at a good spot to be a “fly on the wall.” In case I haven’t said it quite enough, images of mommies and their kids are my very favorites.
