Meet Tracy, Greg and little Angus. It’s hard to believe that I’ve known Angus since he was only a few days old and now he’s almost four! I remember Tracy bringing him to a SafeKids Coalition meeting, where we both were volunteers, and how he wrapped his two week old newborn finger around mine. That moment I’ll never forget. Where does the time go? You might recognize Greg if you’re a runner. He’s the genius behind McMillan Elite, a non-profit Olympic development running team based in Flagstaff, Arizona. Kristen and I were fortunate enough to photograph most of their runners for a fun project called “We are Athletes and More“. It was truly amazing to get to spend time with people chasing their Olympic dream. But, back to this family session! The McMillans chose West Fork Trail in Oak Creek Canyon for their family session, and we love the versatility of this place. It has beautiful trees, rock formations, bridges and streams, pretty much a photographer’s dream! It was a bit muddy, but as you can tell from the photos below, Angus preferred it that way!
We’ve always said, that we enter a photo session with clients, but leave with friends, and this family is no exception. My husband and I now regularly enjoy evenings and outings with this wonderful family, and for the last two years, we’ve even spent Christmas day with them! It’s truly a blessing to get to know families as they grow, I love my job so much!
