I first met Andrew and his p’s a few years back, they came to have a Marmalade Location session one early morning in the fall of ’06 (I cannot believe it’s been 3 years!)…back then (as now) Andrew was Mr. Explorer and his mom & dad rocked my world because they were so in tune & in love with nature. I adored getting to know them. It was a great time…
Now imagine my excitement when they booked a session at the waterfall for their family photos this year. It’s fair to say that I think everyone had a fun time. I like to think of sessions at the waterfall as mostly a fun experience where a camera happens to be present! I think Andrew & his dad agree. Thanks Beth for trusting me with this time in your lives – our guy is growing so fast! I can hardly believe he’s an almost 6 year old! And John, I agree – most painless photography session EVER!! 🙂
This says it all!! 🙂
Look @ the glorious light surrounding them. I hart this spot for family (fun) photos, especially with boy families.

That waterfall image is just amazing, it has to be huge on their wall for sure. I love how the fun just jumps out of the image of the boy looking between the parents arms, haha. What personality.
