This family session at Perry Farm in Bradley has to be one of my favorite family sessions ever!
I first met Brittnay when we worked on a styled shoot together two years ago. She was one of the stylists that got our models looking amazing! I liked Brittnay right away. You can just tell that she truly cares about people and loves what she does.
Fast forward a year to so when my long-time hairdresser quit doing hair. I reached out to Brittnay because I felt like I could trust her with my hair. I also felt like she’d be fun to get to know as I sit in the salon for an hour or two. When I reached out to her to first do my hair, she mentioned wanting family pictures. I was so excited because her family is the cutest.
After several attempts to find a time in their busy lives, I finally got to photograph them this spring. They were a blast! Brittnay and Alex are parenting a toddler and a teen, so I immediately felt this sense of understanding. Parenting toddlers and teens at the same time is no joke friends! You have all kinds of energy and emotion going on at all times. But, you can tell that this adorable couple is doing it well. They love deeply and were super relaxed and playful during our time together. I hope I get to photograph them for years and years to come!
