Fall 2017 | Shule Family

“When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life.”

My husband and I have lived in our house for about a year and a half now. Like many people, we were a little slow in meeting our neighbors.

Earlier this year, we decided to get rid of a playground set that came with our house. It was quite large… it might as well have been a community park! Trying to figure out what to do with it or where to take it was daunting. We wanted it to go to a family that could enjoy it. We found such a family, and it was at this point that we started to get to know more of our neighbors… including Kendra and Adam, who have a portion of our playground for their little guy to enjoy.

Kendra and Adam live just a short distance from my house and are such sweet people. And Aiden… what a little sweetheart.

It was a gorgeous evening when we did their session. We went full country and got some photos by a nearby corn field and by some great barns too. I have a soft spot for barns when it comes to photos! Aiden wasn’t totally feeling it during the session, but even though he would rather have been playing, mom and dad were able to continually get him to smile and laugh throughout the session!
