I go pretty wayyy back with the Whitehurst Fam.. All the way back to high school actually. Chris was my marching band instructor his very first year of teaching (I marched with the trombone if you’d like to picture that for a sec!) and my family knew Mandy and her family well through our local church community. I remember thinking it was a match made in heaven when I heard Chris and Mandy were an item! I’ve had the joy of documenting their growing family every few years since Gavin came into their life.. beginning with some crazy oversaturated photos with terrible angles about 8 years ago (thanks for pulling that old album out to remind me how far I’ve come, Mandy!) and then some much, MUCH more properly composed photos 5 years ago as they welcomed baby Alex to their pack. ;-)
This year, we chose to photograph at their lovely new home in Camden doing everything they normally do as a family. The boys play legos, wrestle with Dad, Snuggles on the couch, a little (not so normally allowed!) jumping on the bed, tickle parties and taking a walk down their neighborhood. I love how naturally they love! The happiness this family exudes between each other is food for the soul and I can’t wait to get another fill in a few more years!
