Joseph | Family / by Jason Rushing

This is one of the great sides of this line of work. Meeting couples that line you up for their engagement then wedding then 1 kid then another then family shoots.  This is that case,  we met Tony and Sarah approx 7 years ago when we went to Chicago for their engagement session.  Wow that was a long time ago.  The one thing I remember was I lost my keys out by an observatory by Shedd Aquarium.  Being it was a Sunday I was a little panicky,  but we retraced our steps and 15 minutes later Tony found the keys laying in the grass,  they must've slid off my camera bag during walking to the next location.  Anyway we have some history.  Fast forward 7+ years and now they have a son and a little girl and a minivan :) And this is why I love this job.  Year after year we are a part of families just by nature of what we do.  Yesterday we kicked out the Joseph family once again.  We try to produce something a little different each time.  One shoot was downtown with some industrial vibe for a location, another we went to nature park with some warm evening light.  This time was a warm summer day with natural and candid shots.  Here is a sample from the shoot.

I knew Candace would choose this one.  Even though it was first shot for this pose.
