Oh this little family is so special to us! Chad and Sophia just celebrated 5 years of marriage last month and we met up in Sedona to capture how much they have changed since we photographed their wedding! They have had graduations, moves, job changes, and house and a baby. Time moves so fast! Back when they got married, I was a solo gig. Jon was coming along to out of town weddings because we had a new baby, and I didn’t want to be away from her over night. I loved having him around for the whole day, just knowing he was there, even if he wasn’t shooting with me gave me extra energy. It was at this wedding I knew I wanted him to be apart of this business. Fast forward 5 years and now he is along side me, not just handling behind the scenes of running a business, but shooting along side me.
Our time with Chad, Sophia and Abby was so wonderful. We crammed in a lot of catching up while we photographed them. The last time we saw them was for their maternity session almost two years ago! I was just taken with Abby and her personality. She did amazing, especially since she had a long car ride to meet us. Our schedule doesn’t allow for many family shoots, but capturing these moments for people we have had the honor of witnessing their start of forever is just to0 important to us to give it up. There is something about seeing couples step past being newly married into the different aspects of really living life together that really moves us. It is the saying “I do” in the every day.
We met up with Chad and Sophia at Tlaquepaque to let Abby stretch her legs before we set out to see some red rocks. It was a lovely evening of exploring and reconnecting and I hope we get to do it again soon!
