A few weeks ago I met Claire, Tom, and their kids at Warwick County Park to capture some family portraits for them. Claire felt it important to remember this particular season, as it was one of tremendous change and celebration. Her son, Tom, was a week away from getting married, her oldest daughter, Rachel, was finishing up a fabulous year at an inspiring new job, daughter, Sara, was preparing for a year of studying abroad, and youngest daughter, Hannah, was graduating from high school. It was definitely a time to celebrate!
The evening was warm and humid, as any great evening in early summer is, but the Kratz crew was fantastic. Here are a few of my favorite images from the session:
I loved the above image of soon-to-be newlyweds, Tom and Keisha, so I had it printed and framed as a wedding gift which I brought to them a week later when I shot a few portraits for their wedding. I was only there for an hour (I usually don't shoot weddings), but was able to capture a few special moments for them, despite the crazy rain that evening!
Congratulations Keisha and Tom, and also to Claire and Tom! What a beautiful family and what wonderful children you have raised! You must be so proud!
May the Kratz family continue to be blessed and to bless others!
