Family session (with a surprise!)

January 26th, 2015

I love this family. So far, I’ve photographed Jhanna & Ryan more than any other family (outside my own ;). When Jhanna called me to schedule this session, she said she had to tell me a few details. Her in-laws were here from out of town and they wanted to get pictures with everyone while […]

 

I love this family. So far, I’ve photographed Jhanna & Ryan more than any other family (outside my own ;). When Jhanna called me to schedule this session, she said she had to tell me a few details. Her in-laws were here from out of town and they wanted to get pictures with everyone while they were here, including her brother and sister-in-law. And she said that they would be surprising their family with some news. Great! I love photographing surprises.

Then, her sister-in-law Kaila called me and said that THEY would be surprising the family with some news too!

Oh boy! This was getting complicated!

But we worked out a plan, and pulled it off. This is definitely one of my favorite moments I’ve photographed so far!

First… Jhanna and Ryan told his parents they were expecting baby #2.

We let that sink in… Kaila was a little excited…

Then she said they were expecting too!

I think mom wanted to be mad at her sons for keeping the secret… but she was just too happy.

Shortly before Harper was born on July 8th, happy and healthy, we squeezed in a maternity session with her mom and dad.  After weeks and weeks of drought, afternoon rains threatened the session every time we scheduled it.  As a last resort we scheduled a sunrise session and made some beautiful images with amazing early morning light.  Congratulations again you guys!  :)
