One of my favorite aspects of photographing family sessions is that I get to see the kids grow and their personalities start to shine thru the portraits. I have photographed this sweet family of 8, including twins and teddy bears, since the youngest turned 1! It’s such a delight (and challenge) to see them play and run, and fight and cry, and love on each other, year after year. This year has been the best, by far, since I got crowned “the best camera lady ever!” I hope that one day when they bring their significant other home for the holidays their mom embarrasses them by showing them these memories captured. But mostly, I hope that they are not embarrassed, but reminded of joyful memories with the camera lady!
