this is the Hatten family - 3 boys, 4 girls, and 2 loving parents. they are a hysterical, loving, and joyful bunch and i was honored to capture their family photos!
i love all of the backgrounds, stories, hearts, and personalities reflected in each of these beautiful smiles - that is what family is all about! you'll see what i mean:
after the smiling and the posing, we took a quick break to play in the waves and frolic in the sand, and it ended up being my favorite part of the shoot! i love capturing people in their element, where the joy is uninhibited, raw, and such a delight to frame.
dear Hatten family, thank you for allowing me to spend the afternoon with you all! =)
