Gosh I have known Jen for sooooo long! We grew up in the same town and our dads worked together. My dad would come home chuckling about funny stories with her dad. They were good friends. Now Jen and I both live in Minnesota.
And she is happily married to a guy named Chris - whom my husband went to high school with! Small world, right?
Well Chris and Jen have four beautiful kids. Each with their own style and personality. Going in to the shoot, we hoped to get a good shot of each child, some candids and a nice family photo. I think we succeeded!
We met on a Sunday afternoon and spent almost two hours running through prairies, admiring bright yellow flowers and walking on a trail through some tall pines.
The kids did an outfit change halfway through and the three girls dresses in the most wonderful whimsical outfits. Jen represents the brand. It is called Matilda Jane. It gave the girls new life. They took off running into the prairie in their brightly colored outfits. So cute!
For the most part everyone had a great time! They did such a wonderful job. They were so patient with me!
Jen - it was great fun to see you again! Thanks so much for asking me to take your family's photos!
