Family session: The Sumpters September 18, 2008


You might remember part of this family from an OpLove session a few months back — now, meet the husband and dad of these beautiful ladies. Jason returned home for a short leave during his deployment to Kuwait. He just arrived back in Kansas just last night, but they knew they wanted to squeeze in a family session right away. It was such a joy to see this family all together, reunited, and loving each other in a way that proves that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

I can’t believe how adorably cute these little girls are. They have such awesome facial expressions and the cutest little personalities. I hope I get to see them grow up! Seriously, see what I mean? :)

I just love this photo. Too precious — the big sister-little sister relationship at its finest:

More cute family bonding, on the canoe docks at Shawnee Mission Park. This was a great location for family photos, because the girls were really captivated by people fishing, boats, the water, geese and deer! It’s also incredibly picturesque.

The lighting was absolutely gorgeous this evening for their shoot. I couldn’t get over how awesome the sky looked. I love this silhouette, of Dad reaching for his daughter’s hand. So great.

Kristy and Jason, thanks so much for asking me to capture your family’s memories. I am so excited that I have the chance to get to know you, watch your girls grow up and preserve your legacy for years to come.

Jason, have a wonderful time at home over these next few weeks — and thank you, again, for your incredible service to our country.

Friends and family, the entire album will be available soon. Click here to sign in and get an e-mail when the photos are ready!
