There is SO much I can say about this family but I'll keep it short and to the point - they are amazing. I first met Aaron and Erin in November 2015 when they were expecting their youngest, Sawyer. I had the privilege of shooting their maternity and newborn photos that fall/winter. I loved getting to know them and their two young boys. You can check out these sessions in my blog archives. I admire their patience and their sweet love they show for their children that radiates in my photos of them.
This summer we met not once but twice for photos. (: They had a mini session in July with just their family and then in August we held an extended family session with Aaron's parents and siblings and fam. His parents were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary that month - again - amazing! And oh my did we have a fun time! I think one of my captions for my photos I posted on FB was that this family was so much fun that I'd like to be invited to Thanksgiving dinner. Or at least maybe for dessert.
Anyway, back to the session. My absolute favorite part was the interactions between the grandparents and the grandkids - timeless and priceless. They are grandparents that genuinely embrace that title and are not afraid to get down and dirty with the kids (as you'll see in the photos below).
New clients are great and new clients are necessary to keep the business open, but those steadfast clients that come back time after time - those are the clients I truly cherish and they really make me love doing this. The Manifold's are one of those steadfast clients and I'm truly grateful for them.
