I met Dawn a few years ago in breastfeeding support group. I was not a newbie at nursing but I was a tired and bored mom and I was feeling quite secluded and lonely so I decided to go to group to meet other moms who maybe were similar to myself. Man am I so glad I did. I ended up going to group for over a year almost weekly. I made some great friends and I'm so lucky that my dear friend Dawn had a little boy, Grady, just a little bit younger than Ben. If not we probably would have never met. I still get a little chuckle that it took breastfeeding support group for us to become friends because the Gamble family only lives a block away from us.
I love the way this session ended up turning out. I had a bit of a challenge placed on me because Gabby who just turned 6 and her dad Jake both have transition lenses in their glasses (all of you photographers take a moment to groan). So I picked the most beautiful fully shaded place I could think of in Quincy and it worked just as planned!
Of course I love the images that I got of them as a family and the kids themselves but I must say I adore the pictures of Dawn and Jake together.
I'm so glad to have this family in my life.-Rachael
