The Barnes family is clearly a gorgeous group of people, but their bond as a family is truly the most beautiful part about them. During our two hour stroll/session through Rochesters Highland Park, listening to Emily and Jason reminisce about the parts of their lives spent in this city was entertaining not only us but to their two daughters. Jason's military career brought the Barnes family to several other parts of the country and finally, they ended up rooting down in New jersey.  Emily is a nurse who truly loves what she does.  She has the kind of empathic and compassionate heart that makes caring for others not just her job, but an extention the kind of person she is.

I have loved following along with his family through the years, and thanks to Facebook I have gotten to see the girls grow from little toddlers to beautiful young ladies. Hannah and Samantha keep Jay and Emily on their toes with all of their activities and hobbies.  The girls are both so talented and so full of personality and quirks.  Hannah loves trying every fun drink that Starbucks comes out with, and Samantha frequently finds herself online shopping for shoes (but who doesn't right?).  
This family is always stylish!  From their fashion choices, to their home decor - I frequently find myself oohing and ahhhing at Emily's Facebook over their cute outfits or their magazine perfect home.
Family in Rochester brings the Barnes family back to their home city of Rochester for visits.  We felt so thankful to have had the chance to spend some time with them while they were here last. They made the session easy and fun as we captured their fun loving personalities -and felt so inspired by the bond of friendship they share as a family.
