A few weeks back, I got a text from a dear friend of mine asking if I could make some time to photograph his sweet little family! 

I have known Kent for about 3 years now. He is a mutual friend and also works for Hickory Hills Golf Course down in Grove City, Ohio! Kent plays pool with a mutual friend and also has two beautiful little girls with his awesome wife, Bina! (Bina's father also works at Hickory! Small world!) When Kent reached out and mentioned that he'd like to do family photos at Hickory, I was more than eager to capture their cute little family. I have photographed them before and the session was a blast at Schiller Park in German Village! Since their last session, they had another baby girl and wanted updated family photos, so we decided to meet at Darby Creek Metro Park in Grove City!

It was a beautiful overcast day (the photographer's dream! There's no harsh lighting conditions!). Kent, Bina, Bri and Everly were all perfectly coordinated, but not matching (ALSO a photographer's dream! If you're curious as to what this "coordination" means, head on over to the blog that goes into more detail. It's also my styling guide!) Photographing little ones is always a good challenge for me. I've done it enough to know that sometimes, things don't work out as planned. Kids can be extremely happy one second and the next, bawling their eyes out for what reason?! No one knows! I really enjoy it because it's different literally every single session!

Since Bri and Everly are Daddy's girls (Bina declared this was a fact, but she didn't necessarily love it! haha), they really enjoyed spending time with Kent. It's really sweet to watch Kent and Bina with their littles ones and how well they work together as parents. It always blows my mind how couples pair up and become teammates in this life-long journey!
