For Christan and Justin‘s fall family portrait session, we were in Upper Bidwell Park and in the vicinity of Horseshoe Lake. We could hear the geese honking and then Christan shared that any time geese fly over in their V shape, she always thinks that it is a sign from her late father saying hello. Moments later, the geese flew right over us in their flying V! We watched them fly out of sight, and then minutes later the geese returned and flew over us once more! I believe that her father was definitely saying hello!
Christan and Justin have quickly become one of my favorite families to photograph. Their family dynamic must resonate with me. Multiple times I shared with their son that my father was just like Justin and it’s easier just to go along with his crazy dad antics than resist. They have many behind the scenes pictures that are just as special as the posed pictures. Their joy and energy made my evening! You can view Christan and Justin’s family session from last fall here.
Christan and Justin, I had so much fun with you and your children at your family session. You have gorgeous pictures to freeze this moment in your lives. Your babies are growing quickly and they have grown so much in the past year. I loved getting to see the special relationship your children have with each other and as always, I loved getting pictures of just the two of you together as well. I am so excited for you to see some of my many favorites from your session. I love that the geese flew right over us!!
