One of our very very favorite things about wedding photography is that we get to start with a couple at the beginning of their journey together (as early as their engagement!) and often get to follow along with them on their path to parenthood!We can’t tell you how much we love getting calls from our past brides and grooms asking us to take photos of their kids!Lucky for us, this was the case with Amanda and Javier! We met them when they were just a wee itty bitty engaged couple and now they are full grown parents!Somehow Amanda and Javier managed to make this shoot even MORE special by adding in Amanda’s family to make it a bigger picture of the generations of love that have been poured into their one year old little guy!That’s right… he’s one year old now! And we have the pictures to prove it in case you didn’t believe us!The extra cool part of this story is that while both us and Amanda and Javier have moved away from Arizona to opposite coasts, it just so happened that the one week this year they were traveling to AZ to visit family, was a week that Scottie and I (Breanna) were doing the same!
(I know these pictures say otherwise, but I promise that Arizona is not ALL teepees and horses!)
It’s amazing how well it worked out for us to do this shoot together!
Amanda and Javier, thank you so much for allowing us to be the ones to continue on this journey with you, despite the odds (or rather the distance) we had going against us to make it work!
We are so happy we got to see the three of you being a family together! It just melted our little photographer hearts! Hopefully our travel plans will coincide sometime in the future since we’d be more than thrilled to see once again how you guys have grown together as a family!
