A Day in the Life of the Butlers 2019


I spent an evening with the Butler family for our second annual Day In The Life session while I visited Japan this past spring. We started in a beautiful park in Japan under the sakura trees, enjoying the evening light and nice weather and letting the kids play. We followed with dinner at home, family board games with Grandma, and bedtime routines. I loved capturing those moments at home with them and showing how the kids have grown over the past year. They're getting so much more independent and coming into their own personalities. I miss spending time with the Butlers and loved this special evening with them!
