Getting married and becoming a part of your husband’s family can be a little intimidating for any new bride. Thankfully, Daniel’s family has been so laid-back and kind to me, always welcoming me as if I was there all along. I believe I first met Christine at my bridal shower. I remember sitting in front of everyone while I opened presents and seeing her face right in front of me, a huge grin the whole time. Being the center of attention is NEVER on my list of things to enjoy, but I remember looking up several times and feeling comforted by her smile. I also remember going home and telling Daniel, Christine was so encouraging and welcoming to me! Sometimes you meet people and just have a GOOD feeling about them. That was my first experience meeting Daniel’s cousin.
Fast forward several months and I head out to Daniel’s family reunion, solo- he had to work. I was so happy to see Christine!
Shortly after, we scheduled a family session at a nearby park in Jax Beach and I got to meet to rest of the Gleason family. Most boys despise the idea of taking photos, but we got through it, dodging the yellow flies and giving each other a hard time along the way.
I loved this family session because I LOVE when people include their pets! They quickly become the star of the show, and how can you not love that sweet face?! She had a picture perfect smile for the camera!
I am a lucky girl to call Daniel my husband and to be loved by his family the way I am. I’m thankful they trust me to capture their family and help support my little business.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their family session:
