I’ve known Lindsey since at least high school. Maybe even middle school? It’s definitely been awhile. We’ve been friends on Facebook for as long as social media has been around but I haven’t seen her in YEARS.
That is until November, when my son turned 13 and we decided to go play paintball for his birthday. There we are, battered, bruised and covered in bright pink paint and Lindsey walks up to me to say hi. She was there with her family, also celebrating a birthday. We played a couple rounds against each other and had a blast!! Her family totally destroyed mine on the battlefield but we still had a ball.
Afterwards, Lindsey reached out to me and told me she had been silently stalking my business and my work and had been considering a family session for awhile. Running into me was like fate she said and it confirmed for her that she needed to book something. So we did.
We met at Kilborne Park and walked around, letting the boys be boys. They tossed a football during most of the session and every time we moved from one location to the other, they’d toss the ball to Lindsey and yell “Mom!! Catch!!” Ya’ll she caught that ball every single time. I gotta give it up to this mom of boys who isn’t letting them beat her down!!
This blended family is so incredibly beautiful and loving. It was great to get them in front of my camera. I can’t believe how photogenic these boys are!!
