I met the Toppino’s on a winding road shaded by changing Aspens for family portraits in Jackson Hole. Their family traveled here from their home in the Florida Keys to return to this place we all hold so treasured. I shoot a variety of work, from portraits to maternity, families, brands, conservation projects, and of course lovers…. but I rarely feature anything outside of my work with lovers on my blog. This family came to life in such a beautiful way it was impossible not to share.

I have to give extra props to Monika, the gorgeous (RIGHT?!) mom who organized this… not only did she come prepared with treats and props, she took my suggestions on style and colors and did great justice to the value of working with your photographer on style, color, etc. It can truly make a massive difference and these guys were a perfect example.


And undoubtedly the best part, well… you’ll see. It starts and ends with a lil’ cowboy.
