Since these photos were taken, Jake and Melissa had their third baby boy Joe! And let me assure you, he is the cutest thing ever.
But anyway, Jake's mom gifted this session to them before she knew she was pregnant, but it worked out beautifully for everyone. And if you've ever wondered if I ever realllllly wanted to shoot in a pasture with cows, the answer would be YES. I have seen some gorgeous photos of families in large pastures with their cows and always thought it was neat. So when Melissa mentioned she wanted the cows, I tried to hide my excitement. I really love when clients want to incorporate what makes them feel like home, and this is what the Sands do, who they are.
