In the Orchard :: bay area family photography

I love these guys! Two happy parents. Three independent and spirited kids. And two great big love muffins (the pups). 🙂  I loved getting them all together, learning everyone’s personalities, and seeing how they all clicked together. I first met Alyssa and Matt a few years ago, when they snuck away for an anniversary session downtown Chicago with me. Since then, they’ve had a lot of big changes! The kids are growing up, they adopted a new puppy, she’s grown her photography business and they moved from Chicago to Michigan. (Bah! Just when I leave!)  Through it all, their family always has each other and keeps one another grounded, encouraged, loved, and balanced. Such wonderful blessings 🙂

    I love this location, especially the red barn. I want to take some pictures of my son in a setting similar. Can you tell me where these were taken? So beautiful!
