Life is humorous sometimes - I got to photograph TWO completely unrelated Johnson families within a month of each other late last spring! This shoot was particularly memorable because this particular family included three teenage girls. Middle and high school aged students are always special to my heart because of my many years mentoring them as a youth group volunteer and leader.
I don't know what it is - busy schedules or changing priorities - but families with older children don't seem to get family photos done as often. Maybe it's because little ones are changing so fast, and after those early years the changes come more slowly. Whatever the reason, it is always a special honor to be some small part of the lives of families with teenaged young people.
So, put together a family full of fun and laughter (and a healthy dose of attitude!), a gorgeous evening, and a beautiful location, and I was able to capture these great moments and memories with the Johnson Family. Thank-you for trusting me with your family portraits, guys!
