Once again, my cousin nailed the wardrobe. I loved how she added pink this year. Her family session each year is always fun and has us laughing.
After the session we were talking about how easy it really gets when the kids get older. We talked about posting pictures from each session when her son was a year old, then when her daughter was born and when she was a toddler. Here her youngest kids are that age when it gets easier. One of these days, I'm going to dig into my archives and post a little play by play just to show how each age adds a little extra fun to a family session.
Every child needs to have a picture when BOTH of their two front teeth are missing. It's one of my favorite times for a child to photograph…it's priceless.

For the first time I've photographed this family, I would've thought I was photographing old friends. They are that fun and easy going. This fall season really has been amazing this year because of wonderful families like them.
It's hard to not have fun when I'm able to just sit back and take pictures of them laughing and playing.

The outtake below is HANDS DOWN my favorite outtake ever! Absolutely hysterical!
Below is usually what is happening during a session. And these parents did exactly what helps…just smiling and embracing the chaos. It's that attitude that makes my job easy.
Every session that is posted, and the edited galleries, give the impression that the session was a breeze, easy, dreamy and nothing but having fun. But what you don't see are the antics that go on behind the scenes to keep the little children entertained, especially the toddlers. Even though the craziness to help the kids stay in one spot, laughing, patient, or interested means doing just about anything. Yep, actually there isn't much that hasn't been done. It ends up being more entertainment for the parents to see grown adults having no shame and willing to do anything for THAT picture. This session we happened to have a dog near by that we used to entertain the 18 month old. My friend held the dog on my head, ran with it back and forth pretending it was tickling, etc. Eventually we had to let the little guy get some snuggling time since the dog was bribery. Yep….didn't use candy…we used a dog. I swear, we will do anything for smiles at a session when a toddler's involved.
Here is sweet Fifi getting little boy loving.
