Being a part of summer portraits with such a happy family is just the best part of my life. To see a family so close and connected and be able to capture that love is such a genuinely beautiful part of my life.
Now, I am sure you know, but it's really hard to get photographs of two and three year olds.
It's almost impossible to get them to sit still and even more impossible to get them to look at the camera and smile. That's what always make them the most fun... They are always spontaneous and exciting.
This family is a special one though.
I know the parents and how much they love their children and it really shows in how willing the kids are at doing what their parents ask. All it took for a good portrait was a well-timed noise and a dad joke.
This is our third year in a row and we hope to do one every year for ten years straight to capture their kids growing up. I truly can't wait to see that book printed in it at the end.
