An evening out with the Ross Family

May 16, 2017  •  1 Comment

When a man loves a woman...

He takes a slight detour after a long day at work and shows up on this photographers doorstep, requesting to get his family scheduled in for a photography session.  

 

Side note: I don't think I have to try to hard to convince you that THIS is a photographers dream!  When the men in the family are willing and happy to get the family together for a photo session, nothing else matters, the location, the weather, none of it. You have just booked a session that is guaranteed a success! Easy peasy. 

For as long as I can remember, Its always been this way with these two.  What is important to one, is seen as important to the other.  Not just meeting in the middle, not just both giving fifty percent, but each doing their best to give their all to each other... and its pretty clear they don't mind doing it either.

 When Paul and I were first married, we noticed whatever it was that Kevin and Shauni were doing, was working well.  Even in the midst of raising three young kids, they continued to put each other first and were enjoying life!   If there was a couple we wanted to take notes from, it was these two.  They would be the first to say they don't always get it right, but they aren't going to stop trying.  

These three were just peanuts when I first met the family... actually the sisters had yet to make their entrance into the Ross family.  (I'm suddenly feeling old).  I had such fun time with this crew.  The sequence of expressions and shots to eventually get this one was nothing shy of comical, they have caught onto a thing or two from their parent, and are enjoy doing life together...for the most part. ;-) They are still teenagers after all. 

Kevin and Shauni, thank you for loving each other and your family well.  Thank you for working hard at it.  Thank you for acknowledging when you've struggled or failed instead of hiding the messy.  Our world needs to see this kind of love is alive and well, and attainable.   Thank you for opening your home and hearts to so many who walk through your front door.  We are honored to call you friends, and are thankful that in a small capacity, we get to do life together.

 

Ok, just a couple more... because Manito Park, after all,  was where your story began.

Ahh, barely scathed by Time.

..and they made a decision to choose to live happily ever after. Come what may.
