It’s a true honor to be chosen not once…but TWICE, to photograph Senior photos in a family!  It was just a few years ago that I worked with Sydney for her images, and suddenly it was Eric’s turn. We literally just wandered around downtown, and found some amazing spots to capture this incredible smile you see below!  It was relaxed, fun, and completely go-with-the-flow for all of my crazy ideas… 🙂  Thanks for being so easy-going Eric, and enjoy your last year of high school!

When I walked up to this family at the park, some of Wendy’s first words were “We aren’t looking for perfection, we just want the photos to look like US…” I should’ve hugged her right then and there.  Because showing a family just how beautiful they are is exactly what I love to do…not through the perfect pose (although we did manage to grab one of those too) but through capturing how they are together.  How they look at one another, interact, and just BE.  It was so much fun for ME, and I think the boys had some fun too… 🙂  Just when I thought it couldn’t be any better, a park ranger came out with a monarch butterfly for us to help release!

Sometimes the stars just align…and this session is one of those cases!  One of my FAVORITE families recently moved to Florida, and my own family had plans in the works for a vacation in the same area.  So of course we jumped at the opportunity to capture a beach session just 2.5 weeks after they moved into their new home!  It was so much fun…and the images of the family playing in the waves make my heart sing!  Until next year…on the beach again…right?! 🙂

Photo day included all sorts of craziness for this family — a flooded basement, a lot of overnight work hours, and the need to move this session to later in the day.  But it all worked out perfectly, because it was a lovely afternoon following Cooper around the Plaza!  He wasn’t too sure of me at the start, but I can be pretty sneaky grabbing those smiles… 🙂  Plus a bubble-gun?!  Everyone loves bubbles!  I had such a great time, and I hope to see everyone again soon!

Miles is five…FIVE.  The last time I saw him, he was just two!  And now it is a few days away from school beginning, and I know this kiddo is going to do great things.  I adore his sense of adventure, his sneaky-smile, and the fact that he agreed to wear nice shoes just for Mom/Photos.  Don’t be surprised if you see this kid on American Ninja Warrior in 13 years!
