As I shared earlier in the week, my sweet friend Betsy (whom many of you already follow, I’m sure!), took some fabulous maternity photos for me and my hubby last month. To repay the favor, I had asked her if I could shoot a family session for her and her own man, John, and their adorable (and Internet famous) kiddos, Miles and Jocelyn.
Bets said she was in for the idea, but explained that, at 5 and 2, her kids are at an age where a traditional photo shoot would be the equivalent of herding cats. So we brainstormed on it and I suggested the idea of documenting a night out with their family, doing something fun. That’s where miniature golf came into play! If you live in Fort Wayne, Ind., I feel like you can’t claim your residency in the city without a venture out at some point to Putt Putt Golf and Games. To the point where, people in Fort Wayne would never say, “Wanna go to play mini golf?” No…no…no…the question would be “Wanna go to Putt Putt?” I was tickled to think that Miles’ first experience (and Joss’s too!) at Putt Putt would be captured by me.
And OH man did this family have a good time! The kids made the most of the night out, Miles couldn’t get enough of being on the green (he wanted to play a second round!) and the whole family indulged in some yummy treats. Pouring over these images, seeing Betsy and John’s mega-watt smiles around their kids, capturing the youthful exuberance of these children, well… I’m so glad the night turned out the way it did. Bets and John, I hope you love seeing this night out again as much as I did! :) Love you guys!
