The Katz Family 2011

by Meghan MacAskill

I must admit…I get attached.

It’s bound to happen when you watch a family grow over the years and have the immense pleasure of capturing those changes in pictures. I grow fond of the people, the moments I get to share with them, and the hope that I will get to see them again in the future to further document their family over the years.

So the photos I am about to share are emotional to me, because after several years of capturing this beautiful family, this will be our last shoot together. They are leaving the area and moving to a new home, a new school, and a new life. I am happy for them but sad that I am saying goodbye to a family that I adore and will miss very much. Before leaving they asked me to capture their beautiful family one more time and I couldn’t have been more thrilled. We chose a lovely orchard in Sunnyvale and spent the evening together soaking up the delicious Bay Area light and warmth. Sydney and Austin were darling, as usual, and Emery stole my heart with her wide open grins. Seriously…Kristen…your children are STUNNING!

As I edited the images later I smiled to myself often. It’s so clear in every photo how gorgeous, loving, and joyful this family is. I feel so grateful to have spent so many amazing moments with them over the last few years and that I was able to provide them with so many photos of this precious time in their life.

Kristen and David- your children are so darling! I am so grateful for your friendship and kindness. Good luck as you start out in your new life but keep in touch!
