I visited this lovely family for the third time recently. Watching their girls grow and change has been such a pleasure. This time around, we were all so relaxed. It was truly like a morning spent hanging out with old friends. The dad said something about making ribs in the smoker next time around. All I can say is -- um, I'm on board with that idea ;) I love at home sessions...where we just play. Eat homemade popsicles. Show me all their tricks on the swing....you know. Typical kid stuff. For me...this is how we create unique portraits...not the same old same old. The ones that show your future self who you were in this moment.
