I am so excited to share our Rollins College family session with you this week! The Hawley family was an absolute joy to be around and we had so much fun exploring the Rollins College campus together!
Rollins College was one of my dream locations to photograph. When Bridget (Mama Hawley) suggested the college for their family photos, I was so excited! Bridget is an alumni of Rollins College, so bringing the family there for their photos tied everything back together. What really drew me to this campus was the architecture. Rollins was founded in 1885 and the buildings were designed with Spanish-Mediterranean architecture. Even the new buildings all match this design. Bridget also informed us while we were exploring that Mr. Rodgers was an Alumni of the school!
The Hawley family was such a fun family to work with! They are a sports family who loves to have a good time. They are super casual and laid back, just like Jack and I. It was a match made in heaven! As professional photographers, we strive for a family session that captures the true feelings of the moment, not awkward and stiff family portraits. The Hawley’s were the perfect fit!
From chasing cats, to playing catch, and carrying each other on their backs, the laughter never stopped. McKenna and Caitlin, enjoyed loving on their brother, JJ. A few tickle fights ensued throughout the entire family and McKenna chose her favorite family member. The kids carried each other on their backs, and even James (Papa Hawley) jumped on! Bridget and James were able to share a fun but loving moment together too.
The Hawley family was an absolute joy to be around and Jack and I loved getting to know them all! Caitlin will be heading to college soon and we can’t wait to see where the journey takes her! McKenna and JJ will be moving up through school over the next few years and we know they will be superstars. As for Bridget and James? They have raised an extraordinary family and life will only get better with their three awesome kids! We can’t wait to watch them grow together. Take a peek at their Rollins College session below!
