{Family} The F family…again. ;)

Maybe the F stands for FAVORITE. Because they really have become favorite clients of mine.  I have shot them twice in the past year, this being the third…and they have 3 more sessions scheduled in the next 9 months. 🙂

But beyond that, as I’ve noted in their previous shoots, I just really like them as people. 🙂 And Laura found herself pregnant with their second daughter (Precious KATE!!)  about the same time I found out I was expecting. So we have further bonded with having kiddos only weeks apart. (I couldn’t do their newborn pics because alas, I was on my own maternity leave!!)

I’m an honest person, so I will say this was a challenging session in that it kept me on my toes, on the move. Adelyn, who in the past, has proven to be an angel of a model for me, has reached the age I warn/joke with parents about. The age that is nearly impossible to photograph. She didn’t disappoint us in that expectation. But with patient parents, a rather sunshiney baby sister, and a photographer who was bound determined to make it happen for such wonderful clients, we came away with some genuine keepers. I would like to point out too that two of the reasons I adore clients like the Fs are: they don’t define perfection as traditional family photos with all smiles, and secondly, Laura always emails me after they see their full gallery with her notes on what pics were their favorites. I love hearing that because it gets me to see the images through THEIR eyes, not just mine. Oddly enough, I agreed! (because seriously, so often my faves are rarely the client’s) .

Some of the ones we love:
– Kate in our sunroom.  Just beautiful.  All of the colors come alive against the light chair.
– The willow tree!  Such a gorgeous backdrop (and our tacky little blanket actually turned out pretty good!)
– The “airplane style” shots, as my sister called them.  An attempt to entertain and distract turned into awesome photos!
– The photos where Elmo made an appearance.  It makes me chuckle seeing Adelyn’s favorite little buddy in some of these shots.
– Adelyn crying at our front door.  Such a sad little face.
So with that… I hope you are equally as woo-ed by this family. This very real. Very fun. Very beautiful. Very loving. FAMILY.

  • Laura - Oh how these photos make me smile – and tear up (joyfully, of course) – every time I see them. Kate’s little furrowed brow in the photo on the area rug just cracks me up. And Adelyn with her finger in Kate’s mouth… “what you don’t want the pacifier? here, try this!” Lol. It’s a wonderful thing knowing that 10/20/50 (pick a #) years from now I will probably still look back on these photos and tear up. And you will have played a key role in that. You’re the best!ReplyCancel
