The Callahans || Lifestyle Family Session in Dayton, OH

The Callahans are some of the most big-hearted people you will meet. When they asked me to take some family photos with a lifestyle flavor last summer, I was delighted enough to do a happy dance. And that's saying something, because my dance moves are literally nonexistent. 

I admire this family for so many reasons. As a new parent, I catch myself watching more experienced parents very closely as if I'll somehow be able to find the secret to success. I've learned that there is no secret to success, but the way Ben and Tricia look for and encourage the strengths in their children is incredible. The encouragement doesn't stop there though - spend a bit of time with either of them, and chances are they'll find a way to encourage you on your own journey, no matter what it looks like. 

Both Ben and Tricia operate successful businesses, he as president of the world-class Sparkbox, and she as the founder and freezer-cooking genius of Once A Month Meals. I'm genuinely honored to know these people; and as a business owner myself, I want to surround myself with people who have walked the road before me.

Enough words. I'll let the photos speak for themselves that this is one incredible family.

As soon as daddy's bike came out (Isn't it a beauty?!), there were a few other bikes that needed to have a quick ride too. :)

The photo below makes me grin to this day! It was Tricia's idea, and I think it's adorable. The matching Sparkbox shirts are like the icing on the cake!
