I was so excited and want to start off this blog essay by thanking the Radke family for choosing Photography by Wandering Images to photograph their family portrait session not once, not twice, but three times! I photographed Jesse last fall and Taylor earlier this year and I was honored to photograph the entire family this time around!
I’m thrilled that I got to meet Alex and Oliver too! I brought my husband with me to this session to help me carry my gear, so a special thank you to Alex and Oliver for keeping the husband entertained with discussions about golf.
I also have to give Lori many kudos for scheduling and taking the time to gather the entire family together before sending her two daughters off to college. So much on her plate to juggle and plan. Sending the girls off to separate colleges and traveling back and forth is no easy feat. The wonder woman theme song runs through my mind as I type! Yes, I’m from the Lynda Carter generation and every-now-and-then I hear that song when I see a woman accomplish amazing unselfish goals for her family. It also warms my heart that Lori understands the importance of capturing the family at this stage in their lives. And it’s a memory I hope she holds dear to her heart when she looks back on these photo images.
Thank you Lori once again for giving me this wonderful opportunity to photograph you and your family. I look forward to keeping up with all your family dreams and goals thoughout the years. I wish you and the family much happiness and success!
