The Mason Family

Family Outdoor Session

The Mason Family


When I started planning this family session, I immediately knew the PERFECT spot - the Pappajohn Sculpture Garden. This family is all about the arts, whether it's acting in local productions, supporting the arts or working with the arts, they personify the creative and explosive joy that comes from artists. They also love Des Moines. So really, what better backdrop? They gave me free reign in planning and throughout the session, and really, that's how the magic happens.


The showed up, ready to go and I have to say, we had a lot of fun. There was running, laughing, tickles, high fives and lots of dad jokes. The best though? Capturing their first family photos as a family of four. There littlest was born in the midst of the pandemic, so pictures had been put off and put off some more, but I'm hopeful they agree it was worth the wait. The joy and happiness shines through, and I could not be more honored to have been the one to get them in front of my lens.


Thank you Mason family! I hope you treasure these moments captured forever!
