This family is near and dear to my heart because I actually have known Ashley for the better part of my adult life. So, when she wanted to book a family session, I was so excited! Over the past several years, the Burt family has been growing and they were in need of some updated photos to display them as a family of five. The last time they had photos taken was about a year and a half ago, so we needed some new photos to update those Christmas cards! Cause, haven’t you heard…only 126 more days till Christmas! (Yes, yes, don’t hate).

Before meeting all my clients, I like to send out a little questionnaire that helps me know a little bit more about them and gives me insight into their lives. One of the questions asks what they like to do together in their spare time, and Ashley answered that they loved going to the beach together. Because of that one response, this lovely family travelled out to meet me early in the morning at Van Wagner’s Beach, which was a perfect location. It was a chilly morning, so the kids needed a little warming up but they soon fell right into place and started enjoying themselves! I cannot tell you how many rocks were skipped and how many sandcastles knocked over!

At the end of our session together, we made sure that Ashley + Ryan got some nice romantic shots in there. Who says you can’t have romance after 3 kids! It’s pretty obvious that these two are still so in love, and that’s such a beautiful thing to see. Enjoy your photos, Burt Family!
