I just adore the Wilson Family. Nikki & Jake are another pair of Albion grads- I know they show up all over this blog! Ted and Jake were in the same fraternity and Nikki and I were in the same sorority, and after Nikki graduated she came back to help coach the Albion volleyball team while I was playing, so our lives have been intertwined all over the place. I have seen Nikki and Jake a few times throughout the years as their family has grown, but it was so nice to spend some quality time with them.
Their three little ones are off the charts cute. They each have their own little personalities, and love to interact and take care of each other. At different points during the shoot I heard their oldest daughter say, 'mommy, Miss Caryn is a really great photographer' and 'can you please wait a minute, mom, someone is calling my cell phone.' Oh the personality!
We had to reschedule a few times because of the weather, but it certainly worked out for us! The morning of their shoot a thick blanket of snow covered the ground, so we snuck outside for a few wintery shots and then made our way to downtown Rochester and used those gorgeous lights as our final backdrop. Just like any good shoot it ended with frozen yogurt on a 10 degree day, because we all know I am a big fan of treats after a successful shoot! Thanks so much for sharing the day with me, Wilson family!
