One of the advantages of being a photographer is being able to take your own family photos multiple times a year. Since my babe was born we have had our family photos done once by a fellow profesh and then the trusty ole tripod 3 more times. It can be tricky getting your little ones to look at a camera with no one there to make silly faces. Luckily we have a pretty happy baby so it's easy to get him to smile, but even though he's a happy fella, he doesn't smile for all of them! Especially when he's cutting 4 molars at once. *Please pray for this mama.......
I love getting to photograph and edit my own family. I love the cute little moments more than the posed photos most times. These are the photos I treasure most, and I love displaying.
These two boys are my absolute favorite human beings on this planet. I always knew my husband was going to be such a great dad, but seeing it in real life is magical, and just so perfect. I can't imagine only having phone photos of these two. Although I love the in-the-moment, peanut butter faces, or tickle time photos, these ones really show their relationship and I just can't get over them!
Of course you can't have a family photo sesh without some posed of the whole family. I struggle with wanting to be in photos, but I know that if I don't, down the road I'll regret it. I'm not perfect, and I'm not where I want to be physically, but my babe is only this small for a short time and I want to document every step of the way.
