The Zimbric Family – Barthel Fruit Farm – Mequon, WI

I am going to tell you a secret, being pregnant with our third baby has me frazzled most of the time. I am mostly anxious about finishing the kitchen remodel, getting the house settled, the baby arriving early, how my girls will react when the baby is home, how I will get three babies to bed every night myself, will me house ever be clean again, and will I sleep at all for the next 5 years. The other day though, it was the perfect summer day that felt more like fall.  I was laying in my hammock (like I do every evening) and the girls were playing nicely in their sandbox. I started pinning fall recipes to start freezing so we can eat after this little boy arrives. Our kitchen remodel was finally starting the transformation into the beautiful space I envisioned. I felt a calm. Everything will be ok. It will be more than ok, it will be wonderful.

This is something my friend Kari tells me nearly every single day. Her and her husband, Luke, are raising the sweetest bunch of littles. They have four children that they get to love on every day. With her continual encouragement I have been able to set aside those worries (most of the time) and focus on this family I am blessed to have. Seriously, a house full of young ones is not always the fantasy that I had imagined, but it is always something I am grateful for and I do not take for granted.

So, here is Kari and Luke and their bunch of cuties. For their session I suggested we head to Barthel Fruit Farm to pick strawberries. With four young children I knew that a fun family activity would yield the best results for family photographs. There was no expectation on anyone. The kids were able to enjoy some quality time with their parents and parents able to cross an activity off their summer bucket list. When they look back on these images as a family they get to remember a fun afternoon picking strawberries.

Most of all this moment is frozen in time for them all to look back on and remember how perfect these days were.  The parents get to remember how their baby boy make this 7 look so big. They get to see exactly how their little girls blonde wispy hair blows in the breeze. The perfectly tanned skin, sun bleached hair, and sweet grin of their middle boy. The children are reminded how their parents were completely present with them.  Mom wasn’t behind the camera but in front of it with them.

We all know these days go by quickly. What are you doing to make sure you can hold on to as many memories as possible?
