A Sunlit Afternoon on Rose Ranch | Druffel Family


We recently had some friends visit us from out of town and it was so much fun (and pretty busy!)  I say busy because they have 3 little ones all under the age of 3, and all boys! If you know me, you know my Husband and I have one little girl and our lives are pretty quiet for the most part.  Throwing in three little boys for a weekend was pretty hilarious. I thought I had things pretty baby-proofed but discovered that my version of baby-proofing isn’t exactly on point for busy little guys.  Anyway, it was so fun to show them our town and just hang out at the house. I love when there’s no pressure to have to go-go-go when people are visiting. Sometimes it’s nice to just chill without a big plan!

Kyle did email me beforehand asking if I’d be willing to let them book a family session with me and of course I said yes!  I took them to one of my favorite spots on the ranch and it could not have been more perfect. The boys were total hams and my little family was there too so I always think it’s fun when they get to see me in action doing what I love.

After our session, we took them to Long Beach and enjoyed a sunny afternoon by the ocean.  It was perfect.

Kyle was in our wedding and one of my husband’s best friends.  I’ve enjoyed getting to know his wife over the years too. They are wonderful people and we’re lucky to have them in our lives!  I’m excited to share these pictures with you all, enjoy!
