I've known the Smiths for a long, long time (since I was in high school!) It's been a joy to see their family grow, and see Kim become an aunt and a mother. It's one of the greatest gifts to be able to photograph people I know and love.

The Smiths embraced warm fall colors for their early fall photos at Palmer Park in the bright morning sun. The kids had fun playing and exploring together, and we managed to get them in on some smiles for group photos too! l love the loose and fun format of extended-family photos, and how family members tend to just relax and enjoy one another. These always bring out the best photos!
