the darket family // livonia, michigan
high school sweethearts who still have a fierce love for each other. the most spirited six year old i’ve ever met. a dance party. bed jumping, and beer brewing. oh, and their dog Nola running away right upon my arrival! these are all of the makings of the session i had with the darket family. my dear friend, and fellow bomb photographer, asked me to come out and document their lives for an afternoon + i was so thrilled to see the love bursting underneath the roof of their cozy home. FLAWLESS is the theme of this family for me, not because it graces a wall of their daughter’s bedroom, but because they give her such beautiful space to be her true self. she is a little bit wild in all of the right ways, spunky beyond belief, and probably one of the funnier humans i’ve ever met. she is such an authentic kid and they are giving her such a cool childhood + i loved being able to spend some time soaking it all up. and i love meg’s crinkly nose smile + the way her and mark adore each other. i think high school sweethearts stir something up in my soul like no one else can… thanks for sharing your love with me + keepin’ it so totally real.
