i got to know this next family because our littles attended the same mommy & me program for a couple of years. i was sooo excited when jessi contacted me about a shoot!!
i can always see it when parents step out of the car; the “ok-for better or worse-here we go” face. in that very moment-my goal is to reassure clients that the outfits are on…everyone is where they need to be…and that once i show up-they have one job…to relax and loooove on one another and simply enjoy everything about being together. laugh when something is funny and comfort your babies when they need comforting.
jessi & travis did just that and i totally think it shows!! the boys couldn’t have been any cuter…and right as they were about to hit meltdown central-we pulled out Spiderman & the Hulk and the world was restored. some of those photos (and the ones after) are my absolute favorites from this session. this is the reason i tell clients to bring things that will comfort your kids. someday these little guys will be so over playing with action figures while sitting in mom & dad’s laps (mom tears)…which is why photos like this matter. they mean something. they are real.
jessi-thank you so much for asking me to photograph your family this year!!! i absolutely loved spending an evening with you all and i hope you love the photos!! xo
