The girls in this family support and encourage me in my photography (always have, and I am so thankful) and the boys? Well they show up, look at their watches and say to me “You’ve got 20 minutes…Go!” (then proceed to mock and make fun of me the entire time)
I love them.
This session was actually a Birthday gift for Keitha (the Mom, wife and Mimi of the fam). They considered having their pictures made (just the kids) and then giving her a large print to open on her birthday along with the disc of pictures. They decided to wait and include Keitha in the shoot, and opted to do a gift certificate for the session for her to open on her birthday. Which was in March. My due date was in May. We quickly scheduled a shoot, and I was all psyched up to do this session in April, 8 months preggo and all. Then Reece (the baby boy in the family) wound up sick in the hospital the weekend we had planned on.
Then I had Tenley.
Then it was summertime. Scorching hot + Large Family = Not a lotta fun for them.
Finally, Keitha got her Birthday session in the fall when it cooled down a little, but was still gorgeous and green and summery out.
I am so glad they decided to include their parents in the shoot… here are a few of my fav’s….
Here I go again, unable to decide between b&w or sepia!
Boys will be boys!
Okay, ending with this one…it’s real, and I love it!
To each and every one of you; Thank you. XoXo
