Last June, Jenny Jimenez came and photographed our family. I’ve been meaning to post these pictures forever… but I think I also delayed it because I knew they were only going to get sweeter with age. That is exactly why I love documenting families -the stages you pass through as a mom/dad/child all change so quickly. In ten years, Jenny could still take a lovely photo of all of us smiling at the camera. But she won’t be able to take a picture of me consoling Will, who so quickly went to tears at this age. Or Skylar clinging to me and feeling shy at school. Or me, waiting by the toilet with just the right amount of toilet paper. (One of my specialties.)
Jenny spent the night here, so she was able to wake up and go to school for drop-off. Our more “formal” session took place later that afternoon with Drew, a bus, and my favorite dress with the forgiving lines. Jenny also posted a bunch of my favorites on her blog, so I didn’t repeat any here.
It was our first family session, which I realize is ridiculous, considering what I do for work. I have hoards of images of Drew and the kids but very few of me with my family. I know it’s important to have photos where I’m included -not for myself, or any sense of vanity, but for our children. And future grandchildren. Another friend & incredible photographer Anna Kuperberg came over last month and took a bunch of pictures and I’m giddy to see those too.
Anyhow, I love all these pictures and just wanted to share.
If you are in the Seattle area and have been thinking about doing a family shoot -call her! She is funny, kind, smart and everyone loves her. That’s the thing about Jenny -you’ll hire her for her talent and then just want to hang out with her for her friendship. Thank you Jenny -you know we are going to treasure these forever. xoxo
