Oh how I love this family. I met the Hawkins a couple of years ago on grass of the outfield at t-ball practice. Their Charlie and my Henry were teammates. I don’t remember exactly how long it took, but it wasn’t long before Stacy and I realized that we were destined to be friends- and so it was. In the time that I’ve known this family I’ve grown to love them more and more. Stacy is a fellow nurse practitioner. She is brilliant and funny and I just adore spending time with her. Mark is just as aweome, as is wild-man Jake and sweet sensitive Charlie. I am so thankful that fate brought our paths to cross and I was lucky enough to meet this beautiful group! Needless to say, I was really really looking forward to a photo session with them! They live just a couple of miles away from us and their property is so beautiful that we didn’t even have to stray from their back yard!
One of my favorite parts was when the boys took me for a trip through their “jungle” (a wooded path that runs along the edge of their yard). Such a fun peek into the adventurous minds of little boys.
Stacy and Mark, I love you guys. Thank you so much for asking me to capture your beautiful family (and for dinner too!!)! xoxo!
