You guys know this team by now…This is (I think) the 6th time we’ve photographed them: 1. pre-Andrew. 2. Andrew’s Newborn images. 3. Maternity pics with Caroline. 4. Caroline’s Newborn images. 5. Annie’s cooking photos (that included family). and now this time, 6. Caroline’s one-year/Andrew’s 4 years old session.Oh, and they’re also up all over their house.
PS. Caroline’s little smirk in this image cracks me up!
I love how much they value family pictures. It used to be like that when I was a kid/my mom was a kid. Now that everyone has a digital camera, people don’t make it a priority. It’s such a shame. These images, for this family, are not just a checkmark… they’re a priority. To those parents who don’t make time/budget for it… I’m just letting you know now, your kids are going to be mad at you in forty years. Just sayin’
Love how many of our families this year have really made an effort in brainstorming with us… doing things in your sessions that you do as a family regularly. Why wouldn’t Annie’s kids love ice cream?! Their age spread is almost identical to my best friend Corrie’s (Grigh) two kids. I think Caroline is like 4 months older than Aubrey and Andrew is only like three weeks older than Zachary. Oh, and the kids personalities nearly parallel each other. It’s like deja vu when I hang out with them!Mmmmmm…..Then an outfit and scenery change.Such an attractive All-American family.
GAH! PERFECT! Caroline, in 30 years, you owe me a hug for this one. I’ll be ready for it.
