Do I refer to them as my favorite family I photograph? Yes. Am I also extremely bias towards this family? Yes.
Literally I always start off their blog post reminiscing over the fact that I am yet again capturing their little family, and how much I love them, and this blog post shall be no different. I have known the Akers Family for 6 wonderful years. Literally wonderful, every ounce of them. I started babysitting Max and Sam when I was a senior in high school, and they very quickly became the main men in my life. Seriously, no man could ever compare to my Max and Sam. These two are the sweetest, most loving, and happy boys I could have in my life and I am seriously forever grateful to be their Abbey. Literally one of Sam's first words was Abbey. Their big smiles and giant hugs every time I see them make me so happy, and so grateful to be in their lives. I also love Abby and Wes who have spent a lot of late nights talking to me in their kitchen when the boys were asleep, shared a lot of meals with me when I was having a hard week, and a whole lot of time praying for me. Seriously this family has been one of the biggest blessings in my life for the past 6 years, and I am so thankful to have been photographing them the last 5!
Abby decided she wanted to do their family session at IPFW, like we did when I first shot them 5 years ago. How fitting that literally 5 years later we went back to the first place I photographed them. Both boys a good 3 feet taller and cuter than ever, for another perfect family session. We also stopped by Abby's mom's cake shop to grab a few pictures, which was so sweet. I just love this whole bunch. Abby's dad was my 8th grade English teacher, and Abby's mom has baked cakes for just about every major occasion in my life. We stopped there as she is retiring at the end of the year, but no worries because I already made both Abby, and her mom, promise to come out of retirement when I get married. But in the mean time, I will be eating cupcakes excessively. We also continued our post dinner photoshoot tradition at Coney Island, so all around the best session ever.
