This little family is quite near and dear to my heart for lots of various reasons I wont get into. But one of them is that they were my first “official session ever.” I met up with the girls when they were around 3 months old (that was the earliest I could get to them due to them being so tiny) and boy was I new to photography! I learned a lot that session- one being that I need to always insist to get at least a few family shots of everyone even if its just their faces.
a year and some change later I met up with them again, they had grown quite a bit but still as cute as ever.Today they started a new chapter in their lives and moved back home to Minnesota- like seriously they are there right now! But before they left we made sure to get in one more session. Im glad it happened. We had scheduled something the weekend before I popped out Jack and it rained then I had the kid and you know how that goes. So when I happened to find this SUPER SWEET field of flowers I suggested we try again. And what do you know the day we planned for- it rained. BAH to the weather thats what I have to say. On another note did you know that in NC it is actually illegal to go traipsing through these fields of flowers and its also illegal to pick them. Well, we have some fugitives on our hands so I’m glad you ladies got out of the state while you could. ;)May these super cute Barbie sunglasses rest in peace. We lost them in the field.
While Eva was playing paddycakes with her mama..
Stella wanted to play with me :) Which is quite hard with a camera.
FAVORITE! Like seriously, this is love right here.
love these hugs!
the best I could get for everyone looking at me.
“awe mom really? do I have to?”ps: none of the eyes in ANY of these photos were edited to look more awesome. these ladies just have A M A Z I N G eyes.
I brought out two of my suitcases cause it seemed fitting that they were moving and all. Plus.. I love me some bright colored props!They dragged these silly suitcases all over that field waving “bye” the whole time!still not sure where they thought they were off to…
for some reason my usual favorite family photo is ALWAYS families walking away- holding hands. I love it!
these next two were for mom. She said, “well we might as well get a photo of all the things that arent moving!” I agree it was much easier to photograph these two photos. Toddlers sure do know how to not pay attention and how to move all around making my job really hard. They are fun, but definitely a work out.then the girls went into melt down mode.and I think this was the best photo of the two little ones I got. Still adorable even though they are miserable.
Angie- I hope you know how much Neil and I love you and the girls. You’ll always have a place in our hearts AND our homes. So if you ever need anything dont hesitate to ask.
Hawaii 2012! Lets do this. :)
