The Crandall Family was such a joy to take photos of! Shauna had contacted me through Instagram and I saw that she was a real estate agent, but that is about all I knew about them before meeting them. They had their family session at Bowl and Pitcher in Riverside State Park. So pretty!
I try to arrive 30 min early to all my session just in case something happens or there is traffic. This gives me a little bit of extra time to prepare and I am so grateful that I do that because it SAVED me this time. (Actually it saved my husband, haha). My husband called me when I was on my way to this session and said he ran out of gas! So I had to go save him, but still got to the session right on time since I give myself that buffer!
At the session, Mark told me that he was actually a meat manager with my dad at Macey’s in Utah like 20 years ago! What a crazy random coincidence! It also was so funny to me because Mark reminds me a lot of my dad, so it was a fun connection.
This family was down to do anything I asked! One particular moment that I remember is I told the family I just wanted them to dance and I could put on a song if it would help. Immediately their Dad started singing “Apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur (with the fur)..” and then the whole family joined! It was in that moment that I realized I need these people in my life forever. Lol. When I was a freshman in high school my sisters and I would all drive to school together. We legit jammed to this song every morning!
Grateful for such a fabulous time and for a family that trusted me so much! They were so much fun and I loved seeing them interact with one another. This is what family is all about!!
