It is always a giant honor when we're given the opportunity to photograph fellow photographers. James & Katie Stokes are a sweet husband & wife team based in Medford, and they happen to have the cutest kids on the planet!! :)
We met James, Katie, Anakin, Rivalee, Jasper, Joren & Ronan at Rib Falls earlier this month on a beautiful fall afternoon and our goal was to capture them having fun together as a family. The kids brought so much contagious energy & humor to this session that our faces genuinely hurt from smiling & laughing with them!! SUCH a great feeling :)
It felt like we were on an adventure with the Stokes family that included tree climbing, trail blazing & rock-hopping! Seeing James & Katie masterfully herding all 5 of their kids while at the same time being absolutely adorable together in front of our cameras was completely heartwarming. This family of 7 is such an inspiration to the two of us, and we feel so lucky to have captured such love!!
