The Potucek Family – Fort Steilacoom {Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer}

1/07/15

This is such a fun one for me to write and share this morning. I know I say this often – but seriously, I ADORE this family. A little over 5 years ago, I met some amazing photographers at a local workshop, many of which remain great friends to this day. I was lucky to connect with one of them before the workshop, and we quickly became great friends. This past year, she approached me with the idea of her sisters going in on a Mother’s Day gift idea for their wonderful mom – gifting her with a session for their entire family! Their family has grown a great deal over the past several years – husbands, more grandchildren, grand-doggies – it was a great time to capture them all!

Now, I’m assuming that other photographers feel the same – but when a fellow photographer approaches you about a shoot, there’s a tad bit more pressure. :) You always, always want to deliver for your clients, but when you know your client has an amazing eye herself, you want to be extra sure. :) And when the entire family consists of their mom & dad, three sisters, three husbands, 6 grandchildren and two dogs? Well, you know you’ve got to be on your game!! :)

And before I start….can I just say that I LOVE their style? All of them – the colors, the details, just everything – love, love love.

These kids – I’ve loved watching them grow over the last several years….every single one of these makes me smile!

And these sweet & precious kids…until this point, I’d really only seen these little ones on FB or Instagram, and I loved seeing them interact!! I know when you’re the mom, this all feels frantic during a shoot, but it is seriously my favorite phase – I love the candid interactions and love!!

And these 3 – beautiful and adorable!! The best surprise was having them end up as our neighbors a couple of years ago too – best neighbors, and we adore Bentley too! :)

And their parents….at the risk of repeating myself, I just adore them. Between common activities with my kids and their grandchildren, shooting at their friends’ weddings, and all sorts of other events/parties….I’ve just been so lucky to have gotten to know them and watch how they love their daughters and grandchildren. So much love in this family.

To ALL of you…I love watching the love in your family, and I cannot tell you honored I was to have you ask me to capture these. Yes, it was warm out, and chaotic, and there was a lot of corralling of kids happening, but I loved it ALL. Thank you, thank you my dear friends!!Lisa Jump Photography Gig Harbor Tacoma Family Photographer_0105

    Such kind words Lisa. We so enjoyed your ease and professionalism and patience with all of us. It was really quite a fun photo shoot and hard to believe you got so many amazing shots as we were trying to corral all of our little chicks & pups without pushing them too hard and melt down in the heat of the day! We just followed your lead in smiling at all cost. We love your work.
