I had the honor of photographing the Phillips family again, this time at Umstead Park in Raleigh! A little fun fact about this family—I met Chris and Claire when my husband and I did our premarital counseling through the Summit Church, and they were our mentor couple! We’ve known them for a little over two years now, and they truly are one of the most down-to-earth, candid, and open people we know.
Taking family photos with three kids can be a handful, but these kids were AWESOME! One of my favorite moments was when we captured photos of each child holding up a number that has their age on it! It took a bit of coaxing with the youngest child to participate, but once his parents mentioned ice cream, his face instantly lit up and we were able to capture a smile from him :) The shoot ended with a big cheer from everyone, and it is probably my favorite photo of them because it truly captures their energy and spunk!
