When Becky’s husband graduated from NC State last winter, their family all flocked to NC to celebrate with them. While together, they all chipped in to have me come and photograph their family. In an odd twist, because no one lived near NC State anymore, they rented a home for the weekend (yes, apparently you can do that anywhere now, news to me). None of us had even seen this house until just a few days before the session!

But that didn’t stop the cookie baking, giant family breakfast, balloon party, chess playing, or superhero dance party.

A note about Becky. I met her online, like many of my close friends and now that she has moved away, we don’t get to spend much time together. But even then, she’s forced me out of my comfort zone and helped me conquer my fear of heights (see disposable camera proof of our ziplining below last weekend). She taught me the tricks to taking my kids to the lake which was a trip I was terrified of doing. (Most important tip: Leave while everyone is still having fun.) She’s taught me where the coolest outdoor play areas are in town. In a few short weeks, we plan to visit her family as part of our annual road trip so with any luck, we’ll have some summer adventure photos to share soon.

Here’s what a lifestyle session looks like when you add grandparents and friends to the mix.
