John and Kristi have been married for 18 years and have three beautiful children and a sweet dog named Cooper.
This summer they made the big move from Minnesota to Arizona to follow a new job opportunity for John, and they wanted to make sure they had some updated wall art for their new home that reflected this brand new chapter of desert life.
This past weekend, I had the privilege of taking their family photos in sunny Phoenix, Arizona! Aside from the few emails we shared, we were complete strangers before the shoot, but the whole family (even Cooper, who was just diagnosed with Lymphoma) had such a contagious warmth that I caught myself smiling the whole rest of the night long after our session was over. They’re just the type of people who make ya’ feel good.
You can check out a few highlights from their session below!
with love, Emily
