Meet the Bambarger family! Mom Holly, daughter Kadence and dad Michael are just the sweetest! The love this trio shares is palpable. They are so easy with affection, which is one of the things I most enjoy seeing through my lens. Holly says that her favorite thing about her family is that they are a team — they laugh together while getting through everything with a smile. Both Holly and Michael are active duty, so the time this family spends together is considered extra precious. 10-year-old Kadence was in Africa for the whole summer — so Holly wanted a session to capture the love the three of them share, for always. I’m so honored that they chose me to photograph them!
…And I have to admit that I seriously considered stealing Kadence! This gal might be my new best friend! She’s very mature and grounded, but she also has a goofball side that made working with her so much fun. I’m so pleased that the different aspects of her beautiful personality came through in her portraits. And Michael (or “Bam” as the girls lovingly call him) is from my home state of Alabama! Roll Tide!! I think we were bringing out each other’s twang. I kept telling Michael that he has an accent, and he kept commenting on mine! I suppose that’s what happens when you get two Alabamans together halfway across the world! =)
Our session took place in my favorite field in Germany. I’m sure going to miss it once I leave. The trees, the backdrop, the light… If you’re in the KMC area, I still have a couple spots remaining in September. After that, you’ll have to visit me in Southern California!
We captured so many fun and beautiful shots during our session. Here’s a selection of my favorites…
