An Afternoon with the Scharer Family
In my last blog post, I shared how lucky we were that Missy from 10Eleven Photography came and photographed a full Day in the Life Session for my family.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon photographing Missy, her husband Kyle & their 3 boys on a perfect Wisconsin summer afternoon.
After meeting them at their house, they quickly got ready and we left to spend a day doing their favorite summer activities....lunch at Chick-Fil-A and playing at the beach!
Chick-Fil-A is still fairly new in our neck of the woods, so it was busy! In the middle of the hustle & bustle at Chick-Fil-A it was awesome to see Missy, Kyle & their boys pause before eating, fold their hands and pray.
Next, we drove to Harrington beach state park where Kyle, Missy and their boys spend a lot of time during the year. Many people in the Milwaukee area had the same idea on this hot summer day! We found a spot and played played played!!
Kyle played with the boys in the water for hours---splashing, swimming and swinging them through the air, never hesitating to get right back out there and play when they asked! When the boys talk, Missy listens with her full attention, giving everyone a turn to be heard. She is there even before they need a hug or their tears wiped!
Kyle and Missy are such a great team….their boys are so polite, sweet and well behaved! Spending several hours with this family was so special because of how much respect and love they have for each other. As much as Kyle & Missy love their boys….their boys love them right back:)
I walk away from each of these sessions feeling extremely blessed to be let into peoples lives in such an intimate way. I love watching families love each other and feel honored that I get to show them this love through my eyes. :)
