I met this sweet Mom when she had photos taken for her hubby a few months back. I was super excited when she reached out to me to photograph her sweet family. I think she should win an award for putting her families outfits together so perfectly! Her oldest is going into 8th grade…. how on earth could she have an 8th grader?! She looks so young! He was such a nice young man and was so patient during their portraits. He might have gotten a little annoyed by the little gnats flying around our heads but heck, so did I! Their middle guy is in second grade and managed to pull one of his teeth out on the way to pictures. Haha, I don’t think mom was too happy about that. Once the blood from the tooth was under control he kept holding his tooth. I insisted he put it back in his pocket or the tooth fairy wouldn’t be able to come. The rest of the session he kept his hand his his pocket and a tight grip on his tooth. Kids! Their youngest is three and so adorable. He kept giving me this shy little smirk through pictures. He would request his own photos and was even selecting his own photo spots. I can honestly say that he is quite possible the most well behaved, patient, and go with the flow little guy I’ve had in quite some time. It was a breath of fresh air to shoot this family. I had a lot of fun during their session and hope to see them again next year!
