…she reached out to get to know me. Ruth just told me this recently which I found completely surprising. Who knew that a random photo of Bluestem Bistro‘s stoop would lead to a lifelong friendship? Without Ruth, I never would have photographed Rebekah & Daniel’s awesome wedding which means I never would have met Sarah Gudeman! Gotta love photography!
I photographed the R Family back in 2010. They were due for another Joy Session especially because Ruth is now living in AFRICA! She’s working at an adoption ministry for the foreseeable future and I am so excited for her! Follow her adventures via her blog – Leaving the American Dream and sign up for her mailing list! Ruth has such an enormous heart for helping others and I know she will do ridiculously amazing work there!
Prior to Ruth’s departure, I met her and her family at Keeper of the Plains in Wichita, KS for a brutally windy and therefore, extremely quick shoot! I love the dynamic of the R Family. They insult each other incessantly and laugh constantly. Ruth and her brother are hilarious together. Jumping. Fighting. Giggling. Perpetually, they are in motion and never stop being awesome.
Thank you again for trusting me with photographing your amazing family! =)
