We are Family

Well, it’s November, so I must be up to my eyeballs in holiday photo sessions! I can’t wait to share with you everything I’ve been up to, but in the meantime I just had to post some pictures from a great family session from last month.

We got some wonderful images of these handsome brothers, and the whole family as well. I love it when the parents not only agree to – but want! – to be in the pictures (sometimes, it’s like pulling teeth…). You’re part of the family too, Mom and Dad, and when your kids look back on pictures of their childhood, they’ll want to see you, and love seeing how you interacted with them. Besides, do you really want them to miss out on the opportunity to exclaim over how YOUNG you looked waaaay back when? LOL


PS in case you need reminding: Sometimes, you need to to get a picture of yourselves without the kids! Because after all, you’re still a couple at the end of your hectic day. I love capturing the moments BETWEEN the planned shots – what you get is natural, authentic and full of life. Just like these guys…

If you didn’t get any family or couple portraits this year – put it on your resolution list for 2012. Your kids will be glad you did.

Thanks to the L family for being such great sports!
