Let me just start by saying, I wouldn’t say I know this family well, but I will say that by the end of the shoot, I loved them and their big hearts!
Jon and I actually have a cool connection with Tami and Bobby. My mom went to school with them and high school youth group “back in the day” 🙂 Bobby was also Jon’s basketball, track, and PE coach in Middle & High School. Not only that, but Bobby’s parents, Dick and Karen were our pre-marital mentors whom we love so very much! They taught us a lot about ourselves and each other that we didn’t realize and we look up to them more than they know. So when Tami asked me to take their family photos, I was thrilled!
The main reason for needing updated family pictures was the fact that they gained an adorable family member, officially! They call him Peanut, but named him Truman. He is 2 years old now, but 21 months ago, they started the long process of adoption. They prayed and waited, prayed and waited. God officially answered their prayers on September 3rd of this year! Little Peanut is now apart of their beautiful family. So happy and excited for them and this fantastic opportunity!
The shoot went very well, we had a ton of fun and Jon was able to help out a lot! At one point the little guy got tired while I was taking pictures of Tami and Bobby so Jon held him…I melted. So sweet. Now, here’s some of my favorites from their session!
Congratulations again you guys!!
As we were walking over the bridge, Truman dropped his sippy cup over the side and his brave sister climbed down and got it!
Look at that little face! 🙂
