Harkleroad Family


This in- home Valentine’s Day session with Jen and Carl and their adorable little girls was way too much fun!

Mom told me that since both she and Dad work full-time, they try to make all their free time in the evenings and weekends count, and it was clear that they like to be silly and laugh a lot. They had a blast together, and I loved being swept up in all the excitement.

As a family, they love playing games, going out on errands, eating together, cuddling on the couch, watching TV, and going for walks—and I was able to capture a lot of that during this session. I was snapping away while they were eating breakfast, playing UNO, and laughing together . . . all of the things they told me they like to do. On top of that, I was able to get a truly wonderful image of the girls giggling on beds and playing together.

I was also pleased that I was able to get an image of just Mom and Dad together in the kitchen. It’s important to me to highlight them as well as their kids, and it was obvious just looking at the two of them that they are just still so in love.

Before the session, Mom told me what she was looking for, and I hope I was able to capture that:

"When I look back at this time in my life, I want to remember feeling happy and feeling loved. Our family time together is important because I want my husband and girls to feel happy and loved. I want us all to remember being together".

Thank you, Carl & Jen, for allowing me into your home and your lives. I enjoyed being surrounded by so much love on Valentine’s Day, and I hope I get to see you and your family again in the future!
