Taryn, Paul, Ethan and Hailey // Family Session and Cake Smash

This was our fifth time working with Taryn and Paul’s beautiful family and we can’t believe how fast time flies. Their little man Ethan is bigger, taller and even more full of life and quirky energy than previous years. We always have a blast chasing him around the playground but this time he wasn’t alone. This session was extra special and fun because we got to meet his baby sister, Hailey, who really enjoys destroying cakes and getting messy. Oh, to be 1 again. We spent the first part of the session walking around the Munroe Falls Metro Park and going down the slide a thousand times. Then the bright pink dress came out and the sugar rush began. So here’s another one of our favorite families being who they are, which is why we love them and why you will too…

Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
