Kent & Janene

My uncle Kent and aunt Janene requested that I shoot some family portraits this summer, while we were all together at an annual family reunion. As children grow up and begin their own families, I have seen how difficult it can be to get everyone in one place at one time; it was quite something that only one of their children was missing at this event, so they grabbed the opportunity while it presented itself. This beautiful family gathered together after hours of travel from Salt Lake City, Duluth, and Minneapolis, at our grandparents’ farm in Perham, Minnesota. Theo and Jasper, the first grandchildren in this family, (as well as “Blueberry”, pictured here, but as yet still a very small fetus), were particularly excited to see Grandpa Kent and Grandma Janene. Jasper spent most of the week on Grandpa’s lap, impressing us all with the strength of Jasper’s love and trust for Kent, transcending the distance between Utah and Minnesota. Much love going out to all of you in Utah!

Theo was less inclined toward formal photos...

And pictures are done!
