The Metzger family is one of my favorite families to photograph every year! I’ve known Amy (who by the way, is the hottest mamma around) since 2009, she was my amazing boss when I was a graphic designer at O’Neill. She and her beautiful family were one of my very first clients. Since meeting I have done family photos 5 out of the past 6 years! Amy and Craig now have two beautiful daughters, Leah (age 6– is in the first grade and has turned into this beautiful wild flower of a girl!) and Willow (age 2, has the funnest/funniest little personality!) It’s been so fun to not only see how her family has grown and changed–but to see how much I have grown and changed as a photographer.
It was really interesting to dig up these first family photos from 2009 and put collages together from each year. Over the years My aesthetic, my style, and my editing has changed–I have experimented with lighting, cameras, lenses, and color pallets–and it’s neat to look back and see how far I’ve come as a novice hobby photographer to full time professional.
Thank you Craig, Amy, Leah and Willow for allowing me to grow my craft and capture your family as you grow!! I look forward to the years of family photos to come!!
