Van Dyk Family (New Richmond, Wi)

Earlier this year I posted photos from the Johnson family.  Some of these photos may seem familiar because Rikki Van Dyk had 2 sessions with me this summer.  One for her side and one for her husband Chris’ side of the family.  What a great combination of galleries to have!

The Van Dyk session was on a Friday morning during the St. Croix County Fair.  This is an important time for them as many are involved with various projects and our local North Country 4-H Club.

We worked efficiently and I would say it was a success!  What was also special was that all of the family could be together.  A couple of Chris’ siblings live in other states.  And, when a spread out and busy family comes together it is a perfect opportunity to have an extended session.

I just love this gallery.  The moody sky, the farm, and the unhappy (yes, unhappy) kids.  The one of the girls is so precious.  Like I have said before, photographs are most meaningful when they reflect reality as well.  A bit of reality combined with idealism (like posed and smiling faces) is a great combination and that is what the Van Dyk’s got.

I enjoyed getting to know the Van Dyk family more and really appreciate that they were willing to carve a bit of time in a busy weekend to capture their time together.  Thank you Rikki and Chris for setting this all up!
