could this really be real life? Like, these babies and their pile of leaves were perfect. It was so fun to get to hang out with a family that just wanted to play together. These just felt JOYFUL as I went through and edited them. I'm so grateful for trusting clients because these feel just a little bit magical with all the smiles and leaves!
Oh how we love the Gilberts! From making us laugh whenever we are with them, to showing us what parenting 5 boys with joy and grace and patience looks like. Also please appreciate how adorable that HUNK ONESIE IS.
Minis are perfect because sometimes you just need cute, updated photos of your babies, you know?! YEAH, I know! These babies get to play with MY babies so I was extra excited to let them into the studio room (this room is usually a toy free zone! hahaha.) to play for a bit. I mean, LOOK at those eyes! Big, brown eyes melt me. Go see for yourself.
Oh my heart. This little family is the sweetest!! And I don't know how to not share this entire session, so I'm sorry but there are a ton. Not sorry enough to even try to edit it down though! They are as lovely as they are in love with their new baby boy. And Liz absolutely nailed their whole family wardrobe you guys. Stop reading; just go look already!!
I can hardly believe how many people are in these pictures!! I know I say this with all my extended families, but I think it's really incredible to meet such amazing and diverse people. The dynamics of big families are so cool! And this family was absolutely FULL of wonderful people. They were all so kind and patient and just dang fun to be around. The men may have even gotten the kids laughing with a good round of the wave at one point ;) so I might hire them as my back up troupe for all extended family sessions!
without further ado, meet the NELSONS!!
Oh he is here and we are so happy! This Iker (EE-ker) man gave his Mom a wild ride on delivery. We're glad he and Mom and BOTH safe and happy! Can you deal with this little dudes smile? He is so sweet!
Couples are still new territory for me, but man Derek and Natasha made it look easy. This duo has been together 6 years! You'd think they were newlyweds with these looks though. (insert fire emoji here!) Hard work and a whole lot of fun encompass their busy lives, and I was so lucky to get to hang out with them in the studio!
