This is one of those sessions that was in the works for months. We had to keep postponing it because of weather and schedules, but I'm so glad we finally worked it out before this wonderful family moves away from Germany. For the location, Kristin wanted to keep close to home, overlooking their village. I love that we were able to capture some memories here in a spot that means so much to them. Kristin, your family will be dearly missed. I am excited to see what adventures lie ahead for you.

We're going on a bear hunt.
We're going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
I had so much fun photographing this family. It was the perfect type of session: we went on a walk, laughed and talked, paused for snacks, laughed some more, and captured moments in between. As I have been sitting here editing, I can't stop thinking about one of my favorite childhood books: "We're going on a bear hunt." On each page of the book, the family in the story has to make it through different obstacles in order to continue their hunt. Although they meet challenges along the way, they never give up, and their adventure continues. Tanae, who is an amazing photographer herself, inspires me with her love of the outdoors, her love of travel, and her love of adventure. But she inspires me most by her kindness, her desire to share her talents, and the way she travels through life's challenges with such beauty and grace. "What a beautiful day!"
It's probably not hard to tell that this family is amazing! I just love every excuse I have to hang out with them. We lucked out with a perfect evening, filled with lots of summer sunlight. I am so glad I was able to help capture and observe these special moments with this family. It's pretty inspiring to see the unity and love they all share.
Meet the beautiful Mikkelsen family. I just loved hanging out with them during their family session last week. Not only are they beyond adorable, but they are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Their love and affection for one another made my job super easy. Thanks so much, Joni, for asking me to photography your family, and for being such a wonderful friend. I love the way you love and treasure your kids. :)
