.Cook Family. Logan, UT Photographer in San Diego, CA-Julie Dawn Photography

Meet the Cook family! I have been capturing their beautiful family since they were just a family of four. I have come to just love their family and consider them friends. 

They are a beautifully blended family! Jon and Michelle are going on 8 years of marriage this July! Jon is a software engineer by trade but is also a man of many talents. He just put it their new hardwood floors this year. They are both incredible parents! Michelle is an avid reader of history and comparative religion. Barbie, Michelles mom is a breast cancer survivor. She has 6 grandchildren and 3 children! Her children and grandchildren just adore her! 

The kiddos are Carter, Kira, Jack and Olivia! Carter will graduate high school this year, Kira will graduate into middle school, Jack will graduate into elementary school and Livy will start preschool! 
Carter is in his final year of high school and has also been going to college since last year! 
Kira plays all star fast pitch softball and is also in ballet! Olivia is 3 and such a character! She loves to make everyone laugh! She sings and dances for the family! Jingle Bells is her favorite song. Jack was diagnosed at 2 1/2 w/autism and was completely non verbal! Jack is 5 now and in kindergarten. At 4, he taught himself to read and is just starting to talk!!!!! He loves letters, words, numbers (taught himself to count by odds, evens, 5's and 10's) and geometry shapes!! It is a huge part of all of their lives. They are so proud of how far he's come. www.autismspeaks.org

It was so much fun to see them again and I am so blessed to know their family and witness the incredible people they all are. Our photo shoot was in Old Town San Diego at Heritage Park!
