Heather and Jarrett took a minute to just be married as the sun faded over the trees at the top of the hill. She giggled about how his beard brushed her face as their oldest bear-hugged their youngest. I loved watching their two sons love each other. There was this moment where Gavin bent down and held his arms open. Porter came running as fast a one year old can with a grin from ear to ear and little bursts of laughter with each step.
She threw her littlest one into the air and he smiled back down at her. And the next time she threw him, my camera caught his eye and I understood why Heather had fallen in love with her littlest. Porter is just a doll! And the way Gavin looks at him? It’s enough to send anyone into melt-your-heart mode.
So what do you do with a family as adorable as this? You photograph them until the last of the light is gone. Oh! And you have them eat frozen custard and encourage them to get messy.
