These photos have a special place in my heart. It was almost 4 years ago now that I first met Trent and Amanda, and during the time that’s elapsed, they became some of our closest friends here in Austin. We walked thru many ups and downs with them and got to watch their family expand and their girls grow up. A few months ago, they found out that they would be moving away and asked me and Katie to take some family photos of them before they left. It was a beautiful Austin day – we spent the afternoon exploring the South Congress area. The two girls (and the four adults) were real troopers. Hopefully these pictures accurately display the joy and love of the Thompson family – it’s this same love that they had for everyone around them. They affected our lives and the lives of many others here in Austin, and we will miss them dearly.
What a joy it was to get together with these four to take their pictures. You couldn’t have asked for a nicer day or a nicer family! I’ve known Courtney for a while now, through work, and had heard a lot of stories about her family – especially about her two kids, Luke and Kate. It was awesome to finally meet them. Luke was quite the character and always had a smile on his face; Kate was okay with the pictures to start, but then decided it was time to start exploring and didn’t want to pose anymore! Hopefully you enjoy the pictures that resulted – a beautiful Texas afternoon and a beautiful Texas family!
