Cox Family | Towson, Maryland | Family Lifestyle Photographer

Every day God invites us on the same kind of adventure. It’s not a trip where He sends us a rigid itinerary, He simply invites us. God asks what it is He’s made us to love, what it is that captures our attention, what feeds that deep indescribable need of our souls to experience the richness of the world He made. And then, leaning over us, He whispers, ‘Let’s go do that together.’
— Bob Goff

This family reminds me to love well and have fun in the process! Will is the Area Director for Young Life and Janis works behind the scenes to help Baltimore County Young Life run smoothly in addition to caring for their two adorable little boys. Wes and I have had the privilege of being led by Will as we serve as leaders for Young Life’s middle school ministry WyldLife.

I met Will and Janis and their boys at the Hampton National Historic Site in Towson on a beautiful spring evening. We had to reschedule once due to rain and chilly weather so we were thankful for the sun and warmer temperatures. I shot Griffin’s lifestyle newborn session over 2 1/2 years ago so it was time to update their family pictures!

It didn’t take long for the boys to realize that this evening was going to be an adventure. This is one of the things I love about lifestyle photography. I may direct and guide their play but ultimately I let kids be kids. And at a place like the Hampton National Historic Site there is plenty of room to explore. There are rock lined pathways, old stone buildings, lovely gardens, historic trees and plenty of benches to stop and rest.

I think the boys loved the lower garden behind the mansion the best. Running the stone lined pathways was so fun. Running free and rocks…what more could little boys want?! Enjoy this collection of images from our time together.
