I had the honor of photographing our family friends on Father’s Day weekend. My husband Joe and Chris ran together in high school and touched base after college. That re-ignited running time along with the hobby of giant pumpkin growing. Joe has been growing since his college days and got Chris bitten with the bug. Chris went on to hold the world record pumpkin in 2010! Better yet? Chris comes with a wife, AJ, and 2 girls, Kailey and Amber. Our families have enjoyed many great moments together. They are the family you go running with, to the lake with, or hang out with and play board games and watch the olympics. We’ve had many great memories. AJ is the art teacher at the Somerset elementary school. She has painted murals in our home and also painted my business sign that resides at the end of my driveway (amongst the awesome pumpkin sale signs for Joe). This family is full of talent. Kailey is always doing amazing gymnast movements and Amber has the competitive edge that will take her far. I’m excited to see these babies (I remember them from hours to days old) grow in to adults. They will be a blessing wherever they land.
