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!

The last time I saw some of this crew, Cooper was just 1-year old!  Well a lot has changed, including TWINS being added to the mix.  Combine that with a retirement for Papa (he worked at this building for 20-years), and it was the perfect time to gather everyone for photos!  The humidity was no joke…but meeting in the morning made is so much better.  I was honored to document another session for all of them, and I cannot wait to share! 🙂

Despite meeting in the early morning, KS-humidity was definitely still keeping us company…but that couldn’t stop the smiles!  Theo may only be one year old, but that smile will absolutely melt your heart.  Big sister Lila is so sweet with him, and I adore seeing their connection.  But try to give him a kiss?  He will swat you right across the cheek!! 🙂 Engagement (in Chicago), a Wedding, two kiddos…it’s been amazing to witness so much of it!
