I have had the pleasure of capturing Mandy and Jon’s love story for the past few years now. I first photographed Mandy and her son when they were fostering their son in hopes of adopting him. I also had the wonderful opportunity to document the momentous day when Mandy and Jon officially became parents to their son! You can view their blog post here. (I just looked at the blog again, and it brought me to tears!)
Mandy and Jon’s son has grown into an amazing boy. He delivered gorgeous smiles all session long, and he was happy to take pictures with his parents, especially with his daddy! Mandy always looks stunning, and this year was no exception. She styled her family well, and they were one handsome family. We were able to capture family pictures and some pictures of Mandy and Jon alone. It never fails whenever it is just the parents taking a picture alone, that is when the children decide that they want to be in that picture too!
Mandy and Jon, thank you so much for allowing me to follow your love story. I cannot wait to see the next chapter of your lives. You have a beautiful son with an amazing personality. It was wonderful to see the two of you, but your son filled my cup that evening! He was exactly what I was needing. You two are so blessed to have him, but your son is even luckier to have you two as his parents. You are rocking at your job of being his parents! I am so excited for you to see some of my many favorites from your family session in Upper Bidwell Park.
