DaSilva Family | Family Lifestyle Session | Tami Proffitt Photography

1. I'm a chronic overshooter.
2.  I am the WORST with efficiency during a session.

Trust me, every session I try to be more efficient but then that goal goes in the tank….one of these days, I WILL be better. But for now, I do love the families I photograph and maybe if they weren't so darn cute, funny and amazing at being just themselves without pressures on kids then 
MAYBE it could happen.  The DaSilva family is going to experience this for the first time from me as there session was my dream session to shoot annnnd now a massive sneak peek from their session.

Until then, it's the fabulous families that make my job insanely easy and let me capture the memories they will forever have.

Before the session,  the mom shared with me that they are super relaxed and love being together.  EVERY bit of that is true.

Two months ago they welcomed their third baby boy and they couldn't have been more adorable together.  Their little baby has tummy issues and this session needed a few breaks for him to feel better. Which makes for lots of snuggling pictures.

There's nothing better than laughing with my clients and joking about the cheesy poses out there.  Anything we said got instant laughing from the big man in the family. And, he couldn't stop laughing the rest of the time.  

Definitely one of my favorite pictures from this session.  Their little guy was fussy and only stopped when his mom was swaying him.  Just below…the swaying in action and he was happy.

And…my favorite outtakes! These two boys, true best friends. They sleep, read, and do everything together.  They were the cutest.

When prints arrive, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning!  I can never open the package up quick enough to see the session on paper.  Once an order has been placed, it takes all of me to stop stalking the mailman for the order.
 The family sessions held in a client's home gets to enjoy a print of each edited file and the USB drive all packaged in a cute little keepsake box.  My oh my…I do adore this product.
It's rarely do print orders since I began including all the edited digital files in session fees.  Trust me, that was a very hard decision to make.    Like, extremely hard…I do love knowing my clients have personal wall art from a quality and professional print lab.   

The lab I recommend printing at is mpix.com.  This online printing lab was created by a professional print lab called Miller's.  It was created for the clients that was quality professional printing at competitive pricing to chain stores such as Walmart, Costco, etc.   Trust me, once you order a print from mpix.com and compare it to a print from Costco, you will see the difference.  And the best part about Mpix is their turnaround speed…LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Nothing better than knowing in a matter of days you'll have beautiful prints from your session with me or other photographers.

This post is embarrassingly, super way over due!   One of my sweet clients added a little bundle of joy early this year, when I'm typically on vacation after the fall season.  Not that it's an excuse, but more of being out of the loop in staying on top of sharing pictures from the sweet sessions I have.

Last fall, we met for their mini maternity session which I blogged a gazillion pictures from because it was THAT beautiful!  

Here are a few of my favorites from the months before their newborn session 
to celebrate their baby boy.
And here is the precious and squishy little guy just days after he was born. 
Baby brother was hungry A LOT that day, which gave me lots of time to play with his big sister who is always the cutest for pictures.  She was so patient in waiting to have pictures with him. 
How creative is her brushing up on her big sister reading skills.  
Adore this little moment when she was watching and waiting for the session to start.
I know I write it over and over again, but my clients truly are the best. I'm lucky to photograph families from the days before their first baby and continue working with them as their family grows.  This client is every bit of amazingness to work with.  Always smiling, patient, easy going and simply cherish these moments of the miracle they enjoy each day.
I adore this family and thanks for inviting me into your home once again to capture these moments that pass way too quick!
