the river with the krouse family

I was a bit nervous going into this session. This family are close friends to my family which can sometimes create a shift with kids that can go in any direction but the one I want it to. I wasn't sure if I would be a distraction for capturing their intimate moments. Instantly my nerves were calmed down and I became part of the wind chasing their laughter with my camera. On this day amongst the tall grass and beneath the sun this family's love was palpable. I watched them in awe of their beauty. Their simple yet intense admiration for one another was easy to capture. These kids got lost in the tall grass playing hide and seek and they loved running wild and exploring. Jon & Peggy didn't hesitate to join their children's adventure and laugh along with them. It was a beautiful afternoon that left me wanting to spend more time with them. I am thankful to call them all friends and honored to have captured a piece of their story.
