Sophia - a blast from the past

This is back blogging at its best. I'm not even willing to admit how old this session is!

I'm pretty sure Sophia is the trendiest baby I've photographed... so of course I was in heaven. I think she comes by it naturally since her mama is so trendy too! This was a bittersweet session since they were about to say goodbye to Sophia's daddy as he serves our country.

Argh, Matey

On any given day you can find John Michael dressed up as a pirate. Last year for Christmas Tara & Adam bought John Michael & Addy pirate costumes and the novelty has not worn off since!

He's also my little drama child. He's the most expressive and I think the most imaginative. I'm regularly overhearing him fighting imaginary bad guys or rescuing people in distress. It warms my heart.

This session had me nervous, I'm not gonna lie. When Sara called to schedule Chloe's 4 year pictures she warned me several times that having her picture taken was like a 3rd world torture device for her sweet daughter. I assured her that we'd get along famously and not to worry... and inside I worried! Its times like this I know why people bring assistants. Entertaining little ones is a full time job.. and doing it while manning the camera is not easy.

But, alas... Chloe and I really did hit it off famously. She was happy and excited and a complete and total JOY to photograph. She was in her element... and I daresay, she could have a modeling future if she wanted, she's that good!

Straight out of the gates... how precious does she look here?

One thing I love about family sessions is snagging a couple of pictures of Mom & Dad. I hear, more often than not, "Wow, I think the last time we had our picture taken together was at our wedding!" Shame on all of you who can say the same! Schedule a session, you'll be so glad you did!
