I know I say this all the time, but it's such a joy to photograph a family in multiple stages of life. Wyatt was a teeny-tiny newborn when he first modeled for me ( ;) ), and now look at him! He's so tall, runs everywhere and has a little personality all his own. And he still has that amazing hair. Wyatt and his parents were kind enough to help us out at Collected, and we all had a blast working with these three. A million thanks to you guys!
The first thing Lisa told me when we started her family's session was that she was just interested in getting photos of her little family as they were. Not a lot of posing, no props, just a lot of giggling and snuggles and playfulness. It was music to my ears, and that's exactly what we did.
Henry's just over that year-and-a-half mark, and he's looking so much like a little boy instead of a baby like at his last session.
Compare that photo on the right to this photo from Henry's session last year. Gahhh!
This family is near and dear to my heart. They have trusted me with multiple family sessions (#1, #2 and #3), plus both of Lindsay's sisters are past bride's of mine (Hi, Ashley and Kelsey!). I can't tell you how honored I am to have been a part of their lives … and continue to be called back! It's the ultimate goal for a photographer, and I'm just pinching myself that I get to hang out with this family on a regular basis. The kids? Adorable. Hilarious. Intelligent. The parents? Positive. Great senses of humor. Kind as all get out. :)
Alexa definitely plays the older sister role, and she's so smart. She spelled my name right on her first try with no help from anyone! Alexa is full of good ideas, a monkey on the playground and a goofball.
Addie is a little quieter and wants to do what her big sister is doing. She has an independent streak too. Addie's sweet, full of energy and loves chocolate ice cream.
I dare you NOT to smile while looking through these photos. :)
