The Norton Family makes it happen before their kids go back to school

When your kids are both home at the same time and it’s during the holidays, you may suggest as a mother that you’d like nothing more than some family photographs. With your family still in the holiday spirit- the timing is right and in this case it was a WIN for mom. Growing up my dad often warned me about timing and paying attention to it. Perhaps it surprises him that I built a career around getting the timing right since I wasn’t that great at it in regards to asking for teenager freedoms.

Kristen had been following one of my Instagram accounts @freestyle_portraits and contacted me to see if there was any chance we could make this happen in a short window. Two days later (after I grabbed my assistant/daughter who was also home from school on break) we found ourselves at Jenkinson Lake on one of the most beautiful winter evenings.

They booked a 30 minute session so I knew I had to work quickly to “get “them and to capture their connections. I must say- they made it pretty darn easy not only because they all had illuminating smiles but there was a kindness both expressed to each other and to Jaz and I. I often talk about leaving a great session energized and this was one of those and for both of us.

Here are a few of my favs from our session. Kristen, Brad, Sawyer and Ben, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with you all and am grateful that our timing worked out!
