{ Cuthbert Family | 10.11.18 } Family Photo Session

I love getting to meet new families and get to know each of their personalities! This family photo session was no different. We had so much fun finding different areas around the park to capture some great memories for them. I love it when the kids want to run and have fun, it make for great candid shots of families being themselves!

Kids will be kids!

Can’t forget about Mom and her daughter and Dad with his boy!

Alissa got in touch with me asking if I would take photos to capture some memories for their family inside their family business. She told me about the family run general store in Union, MI and how it had been started 36 years ago by her father and how closely connected the whole family had become to the business. After all the years of running the store, the time had come to close the business and they asked me to capture some final memories!

I jumped at the opportunity to be involved and to be able to photograph all of them together in this store that meant so much to them!

The kids have grown up in and around this family business and it has become a big part of their lives over the years. I was amazed to hear all of the history and stories dating back to the 80’s when the store was opened. The Wetzel family spent many days and nights organizing and operating the market.

The dining table at the front of the store was the gathering place for many early mornings involving strong coffee, newspapers and visits by many in the community. In a small town like Union, Michigan, this market has become a landmark for all in the community to come for a chat and to buy their groceries!

The grand kids stole the show….these jackets were family heirlooms and worn by the owners children as they grew up in the store…now the grandkids are passing down the tradition!

The little ones had a blast running down the isles of the store and having their family photos taken…smiles on all the kids faces!

These little toddlers were a blast…so darn cute and loving!

I love being able to meet and hear the stories of all my clients….it always such a blessing to see inside their world and be able to capture it in photographs with them!

The weather was perfect for an evening photo session on the Notre Dame campus with this fun family! They had a super cute puppy that they asked if they should bring along…I said heck yes, bring him for sure!

NO!!!!! Mom snuck in a last minute kiss….oh the look on Hunter’s face….priceless!

Of course, Mom wanted pics of her son as well….and why grab a few with his girlfriend and doggy as well!

What an adorable and well behaved puppy. Such a great family companion!
