I always worry when I have a shoot with small children. Only because my own seem to have such a hard time listening to me when I ask them to take pictures. But this fabulous family was so great. I wish my own two year old would smile and have fun like this little guy did. The older kids were just wonderful. It was so fun to finally meet the whole family. I've met the mom a few times and have always thought so much of her. She does a great job with her kids.
Here is another familiar family. I had a great time this year once again. I love it when I know a family and we can joke and have a good time. As you can see this family is so adorable. I'm so happy when I have clients that become my friends.
Last year I met this adorable family. The boys were not all that excited about pictures. We will just say that it took some work last year.
When I received a call this year to shoot this family again I was so excited to hear there was a new addition to the family! It was cold and the weather threatened us almost the whole time. But they were so fun. The boys seemed to be much more understanding of what was going to happen. It is always so much fun to see familiar smiling faces.
I really did say last year that I wasn't going to try to take pictures of my own kids again. For one we can't have family pictures this way. And two, they just don't seem to listen to me! All in all the pictures aren't horrible. I just couldn't seem to get my boys to smile a normal smile for the life of me. Oh well. At least I now have them and can say it's done. They are darn cute kiddos! Of course I am a little bias.
If you know me you know I love to meet new people. When I met this adorable little family I knew right away how well we'd get along. The kids are close in age like mine, and they act a lot like mine. They were so fun to shoot. And how could I not have a great time with such adorable kids and such a beautiful mom, both inside and out. I think this little family is just adorable. I've become fast friends with mom. And our kids get along great.
This family is just amazing. The mother and I have become fast friends. They are such an example on how a family should be. These boys adore her! They were up for just about anything. We were scaling walls and on a private golf course. Anytime there was an obstacle that "mom" needed to go over three male hands popped out to help her. You can see the love in this family. The have so much fun being together and it really shows. I had so much fun with our early morning shoot. Even though I felt horrible with a cold. They made me laugh the whole time!
It is not enough to say that I had a great time back east. I loved the time I spent there. Not only because I was in a place filled with history and beautiful places to take pictures. But because I met some of the cutest families while I was there. These little guys were so fun. I had the chance to spend time with each of them one on one. Time to get shots like these!
