I met Marianne online back in 2001. You know, back before meeting strangers from the internet in person was the norm. Remember those days? #WhenDidIGetSoOld? We bonded over a shared love of Disney (she and her husband met working in the Canada pavilion in Disney’s college program) and have stayed friends over the years. So I was super excited to get the chance to see her in person again and photograph her family on their recent Disney vacation! They stayed at Wilderness Lodge and we had a blast doing photos around the resort!
10 years. That’s a long time, yet somehow it’s gone by in the blink of an eye! 10 years ago this month I photographed Kim + Mike’s wedding at the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens. We recently got together — along with their seven year-old son, Mason — for their 10th anniversary portrait session. During our session, Mike sweetly surprised her with a new ring!
I love photographing families year after year and watching them grow and change. Look how little the girls were the first time I photographed them! They're still as adorable (and sassy!) as ever and their obvious adoration of their baby sister warms my heart!
