Ben, Sarah, Avery & Lorelai

It is always an honor when another photographer reaches out to us. And even more so when they're friends. Jake and Ben have been friends for the past few months and it was so much fun to get to know his beautiful wife Sarah and their sweet daughters, Avery & Lorelai. Check out Ben's latest work here: We started things off with something fun to get Avery laughing and comfortable. It worked even better than we could have thought!

This was such a funny moment from this session. We asked Avery if she would put her hand in her pocket and she immediately complied. Granted, this wasn't the pocket we were referring to, but she did exactly what we asked. So cute!

Describe an ideal day with your family:

An ideal day is us hanging out together, going to a park. We love good food so at some point in the day we’re eating something tasty. Avery loves being outside, but loves laying down and watching her favorite Disney movies just as much.

Ben & Sarah, thank you so much for letting us hang out with you and your sweet kiddos for a while. We loved being able to freeze this time in your life for you and we hope you cherish these pictures for years and years to come.
