an afternoon in the neighborhood.
joe + kristin + jules + alexander.
i was so excited to spend the afternoon with my favorite family a few weeks ago! this was the third time i’ve photographed kristin + joe’s awesome family, and i love them more every time! i was hooked on this family after doing a lifestyle session with jules + alexander just over a year ago! a month later, i got to meet all of kristin’s family and do family photos with everyone for father’s day. so of course i was thrilled to document another fabulous afternoon with this duo and their adorable kids on easter sunday! even more so, i was ecstatic to learn that kristin + joe are expecting another baby! woohoo! i couldn’t be happier for them – they are such incredible parents and they are so totally in love – it’s nothing short of amazing to be around them. and so of course, another fantastic session to add to the list!
jules + alexander were super happy and excited (as always!) when i arrived, showing off their easter baskets and goodies from the morning! alexander was showing me some of his crazy cool action figures when jules told her daddy “alexander loves jaime!” – and seriously, it was the cutest thing that’s ever happened. i feel so lucky that these kids are so cool with me crashing their sunday and taking a ton of photos with my big crazy cameras. they go on about their business having fun, playing, smiling and being a family and i get to do what i love best – document the action as it unfolds.
we packed up and took off for a walk through the neighborhood – strolling along a wooded path leading to the playground (yay!) and the docks. alexander zoomed along on his scooter and jules chased behind him. these kids are so good to each other – jules adores her big brother and alexander is so sweet to her. before we got to the docks we stopped to pick up rocks to skip (read :: toss) into the water and alexander was super concerned with making sure jules got a good rock too. love it!
it was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon, and i loved watching everyone just be together. what a privilege! there was a lot of singing, hugging, laughing and even a little easter candy snacking, and all the while i kept thinking: i have the best job ever.
thank you kristin + joe – as always, it was an honor to spend time with your family. love you guys!
candy break – it was easter after all!
kristin is 7 months along and totally radiant – even more so than usual!
