Robinson Family – Notre Dame – South Bend Family Photographer

I got to meet the cutest family last week! Grant, Dana and their adorable son met me at Notre Dame for a combo family/engagement session. This amazing family made the 13 hour drive from Canada to cheer on the Irish at the upcoming football game. Grant has been a Notre Dame fan for so long that they decided to take this year’s vacation and finally see the Irish in person.

We started our day inside the Morris Inn. We snuck in the golden hallway for a few quick photos of just Grant and Dana. The hotel was hopping with guests so we were brief.

Next we traveled to the Golden Dome. Thanks to the chilly wind, very few people were out. However, since Grant and Dana are Canadian, the cold didn’t bother them in the least. 🙂

Time for family fun! Isn’t he the cutest!

The Basilica then the Grotto.

Our last stop was in front of the football stadium and Touchdown Jesus. They surprised their son with a Notre Dame football and boy was he thrilled! He would literally cry if you tried to take it from him.

Such a beautiful family!


Thank you Robinson family for letting me capture a small part of your trip here in the States and congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Love – S
