Photographing the Doughty Family for the second year in a row made me happy.
They are a his and hers blended family, but five minutes with them and you know, they prefer to just call it “ours”. From actions to language, Deek and Nikki promote a team unit.
Whether it’s kissing…
Or listening to Nikki speak affectionately about their kids..
Or discussing the positive relationship they work to maintain with the other parents involved. As Nikki describes it, “I’m a bonus mom, and I’m grateful to their mom for sharing them with me.”
And then, when a teenage girl still wants to hold hands with her daddy, well, I just die. That’s all.
Thanks for letting me take part in your family year after year!
