This group was all about having FUN! We tried to meet up last year but crazy schedules didn’t let that happen so I was so glad we could find a date this summer. The three kids needed no time to warm-up and were ready to go!

Oh I just loved this family!! These two sweet girls were shy for 10 seconds and then they were OFF! Mom, Dad and their big brother were such sports as the girls ran circles around us. I honestly love it when kids get a bit crazy. There are bigger smiles, more expression, more candid interactions and a more true look at their personalities. The best part of the shoot was when we were walking back to the car and the girls held my hand, wanted me to put them in their car seats and invited me to grab a milkshake with them!

My daughter had been asking if I could take her and her friend out for a shoot. I was SO nervous. They take pics with their iPhones, shoot a certain way for Instagram, use filters and I was afraid that they wouldn’t like what I do. I was afraid that they would be hard and pick on themselves. BUT it was the total opposite. We had such a great time. I loved watching them have fun, feel good about themselves, not over thinking it and just have fun. Being 14 can be hard!! These two are such great girls and I love watching them grow into such amazing ladies!

Oh my goodness the Williams family was the absolute cutest! These guys showed up smiling and laughing and it lasted the entire shoot. What a sweet family that truly love and support one another and think each other are hilarious! It was an honor to meet them!

I have been so lucky to have been photographing this sweet, sweet family since both girls were born! Now you can’t tell but one of them was just not having it this day. So many tears, a lot of running away. It happens! The best is the other sister is like “ great, you melt down because then I get to be in all of the pictures!!”.
