Fish FacePosted: February 22, 2013
The photographers that took our family photos have been friends with my sister and my brother-in-law for a very long time. At one point, before the photography business, they owned a coffee shop that was on my husband’s and my way to work in the morning. We stopped daily for a caffeine fix. We also got to know their family pretty well.
Our kids trick or treat together. Birthday parties and other get togethers.
I think that when you know your photographer, they tend to get some of the best photos. I also really like it when they can catch a moment with your children just being themselves. Kids being kids.
Little girls making fish faces. Cousins spinning. Little girls hiding in plants. Getting dirty when we had just polished them clean, and dressed them in off-white striped dresses. (What were we thinking?)
Three girls actually paying attention for just a quick moment.
Piles of granddaughters on their Nana.
A Momma chasing her daughter with a missing shoe, praying that she doesn’t rip her tights, or fall and get them dirty.
A big daughter who acts just as silly as the little daughter.
A sweet, stolen moment between your parents that wasn’t posed for the camera. A moment captured that is just who they are, Dad whispering to Mom, still in love after forty years.
The more that I go back and look at the pictures, I am so greatful that we had them done. I am so thankful that we had kind friends who were able to fit this photo shoot into their busy schedule when we really needed it done.
