Last Sunday I found myself at Peaks of Otter taking pictures of the Shaffer Family. It was a gorgeous bright day. For those of you that do not know them… this is my pastor and his family. They have five children: Sam, Jake, John, Cami & Gabe. What a fun afternoon. Thanks for allowing me to sleep good that night guys!! :) Enjoy your photos.
Pictures below were taken AFTER the "official" picture taking time was over. I was whooped and sitting in the grass.. and these kids just starting jumping all over each other. I wanted to just watch but instead took the opportunity to capture this family at its normal state. :) I thought that this was special. It's not the most perfect photography, but I don't care, this is who they are, and I love it.
Some on-lookers even mentioned to Gretchen later on that her family was "very mean to each other.." she explained that this was just the way that they "loved on each other!" ….and I could not agree more!!
