I’ve known the Joy family for a couple of years, and I even did an in-home lifestyle session for them a little over a year ago. Meaghn and I are both mothers to three kids and both our oldest boys are going to be in Kindergarten this fall! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone and I know she can’t either.
We met up for photos at one of my favorite parks in Lake Oswego. It’s a pretty quiet little spot most days, but there were SO MANY geese there this time! The park has a beach on the river and the geese kept walking up to us and honking at us. The kids were completely enthralled and trying to both simultaneously be really close to the geese and really far away all at the same time! 🙂
All three of these kids are the sweetest! Edie is a delight and her older brothers love her so much! They took care of her and held her hand when she needed it — I don’t have an older brother, but I always wanted one like these two! Michael is the protective older brother and Liam is pure energy and goofiness wrapped up in a package. These kids kept me smiling for the whole session.
Meaghn and Ryan are so fun to watch as parents. Each of them was up for any pose or idea I had, and I can’t tell you how much I melted every time Meaghn looked at her kids. She gave each of them a big smile every time they got to sit on her lap or hold her hand for a shot. It’s so heartwarming to be able to capture these moments for them, and it’s truly a privilege for me to be part of their little world for an hour or so.
