It was a beautiful Saturday morning in October. The leaves were falling, the sun was shining, and the Erickson's were ready for their close up. We gathered at the stone bridge at Bertha Brock Park in Ionia and created photography magic.
There was something special about their session. It was filled with so much love. I could not believe how lovey their kids are to one another. It just made my heart melt. After their session was completed, we gathered more family members for a HUGE family portrait (more on that later) and then something special happened....
The session came to a close and just as I was packing up my things, they asked me over to their house for pizza. A family after my own heart. I have never been the type to turn down food and after photographing their wonderful family, I couldn't leave them just yet. I said yes and felt like I was part of their family. My day was perfect.
Cris, thank you so much for making me feel so welcomed to your family. I loved every second I spent with you and your family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Here are a few of my favorites images during their session. Enjoy!
These next two are perfect examples of how lovey they are:
