Riparian Preserve Mini-Session: Livin Family

Family, Portraits

We decided to stop by and visit some friends in Phoenix, Arizona for a few days before heading out to cover our last wedding of 2019 in Las Vegas. Meet the Livin Family!

I met Kristy in pharmacy school. Although we didn’t interact much the 1st three years, we really got to know each other on our last year in school when we had the same rotation together at Rush University Medical Center. She’s one of the nicest people I know and I’m so glad we got the chance to connect before we both headed out to different states, doing different types of pharmacy work after graduation. Erick and I witnessed these two tie the knot. Several years later, we finally saw each other again, and this time, with their little bundle of joy, Ethan. It was a rather quick min-isession at the Riparian Preserve as Ethan was not in a great mood for photos, especially seeing strangers with huge cameras! Aaaaw! He’s still a cutie though! They invited us to their place for delicious dinner after and it was amazing!

Thank you so much Adam, Kristy and little Ethan for having us!

What started as a childhood hobby evolved into a great passion. Hours after I got engaged, I browsed through dozens of wedding photographers' portfolios and realized I was looking at my dream job. I fell in love with the idea of telling people's stories in images rather than words. It is my utmost goal to make you look back at these memories we create together as if you're experiencing these moments again, nostalgic yet exquisite.
