Schmelzenbach Family Portraits

January 18, 2016

One of the coolest things about growing up is getting to see how our friends grow and change with the seasons of their lives.  Lately, the most common season change is the journey into parenthood for many of our loved ones.  Elizabeth and Paul are friends from college/ church that we've known since our dating days, and they took the plunge into parenthood about a year ahead of us.  Seeing people we love love on their kids is really the best!  And watching them love their kids has been such a joy!

 

We met up for family portraits at Mission Trails Park, and had the peeerrrrrfect sunset as our backdrop.  I'm a firm believer that family portraits should reflect YOUR family exactly as you are!  And I really feel like we totally nailed it.  Bright colors, little boys who love to laugh and play with sticks, and a mom and dad who are happy to joke and go along with the antics of their little boys.... that's these wonderful people in a nutshell!

 

 

This is one of my favorites from the day!  I love that as soon as Daddy picked him up, we got an ear to ear grin :)

Two kids down, and these college sweethearts have still got it!  <3

 

Elizabeth and Paul- thank you so much for letting us play with your sweet family!  We have loved watching you grow and totally rock this parenthood thing.  We are excited to see the adventures you get to experience with your kiddos!!!

 

hugs,
