The Petinak Family

Remember the photographs of sweet little Kendall eating her cake?
This weekend I had the opportunity to take pictures of her entire family.

Kelly was the leader at my table this year for the mom’s group I’m a part of. I just adore her.  Kelly and I each have a pretty big sweet tooth.  We’re always talking about desserts we’ve made and sharing recipes. I guess that’s fitting since her family is super sweet 🙂  Kelly’s husband Chris is a talented graphic designer, and his studio is the one that designed my logo and business cards.

We had fun playing a gorgeous park while we snapped pictures. The Petinak family takes home the “most gorgeous eyes” award. I was blown away by their bright blue eyes.

    Those are just amazing picks! I love the contrast of the blue and pink for the boys and girls with the green grass in the background. And, I love all the adorable ones of you and Chris just as a couple. I also love the family ones of you swinging Cam and Kendall on Chris' shoulders! Precious!

    These are great pictures! I especially liked the ones of children that were down on their level–great angles. Beautiful pictures of a sweet family that is special to me.

    Absolutely beautiful! One of my favorites is the pic of Kelly and Cam forehead to forehead. What a precious moment!

    I liked Chris and Cam lined up. I also like the leaf for a dot on your j in your logo. It seems appropriate for growing families and lots of pics in parks.

    Such a special time in one's life where the family photos can tell the story just by looking at the photos. Jessica did a fantastic job of capturing Chris and Kelly's love for their family! Fantastic and I can't wait to get some of these photos on my walls!
