Meet one of the most fantastic families I have had the pleasure of photographing (not to mention my good friends), The Taylor Family! I have known Jamie for 10 years now. WOW! Where has the time gone. Our girls were just babies back then and our boys...well we blinked and they turned into young men overnight right? When I met Jamie 10 years ago, during the first month we both worked for Lincoln Military Housing, I had no idea that I would be making a lifelong friend and someone I would end up considering a soul sister! I love this woman more than I can express. We have seen each other through some major life hurdles and even carried each other across some devastations. So when she called to ask me to photograph her family, I was just simply over the moon excited. When I set out to plan her session, I knew that they were not the family to put in a flower garden or out at the beach. So I started wracking my brain about what the perfect location would be for them. I have to say Ghent turned out to be the perfect spot for them. We still ended up getting the pretty greenery and the water in some of their shots but their session had a more historic, urban setting and it was a lot of fun to shoot. It helped that she had bribed both of the kids to get them to be on their best behavior (this works best with pre-teen and teens). I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!
