Family photography can have it’s challenges. I know several photographers who have sworn off it altogether. I have a soft spot for families though. You get everything in one session! Parents to do cute couples pics, kids to do some fun ones and then everyone together. Those can be the toughest for people but in my eyes no matter what is happening they are probably the most genuine. Parents laughing at the little ones (or giving them a ‘certain’ look), kids with toys in their mouth or their huge toothless grin…. I could go on. As much as we all want the perfect family portrait with everyone looking at the camera and smiling, it’s those more candid ones that make it on the walls and on the holiday cards.
This is Charlie’s first birthday. How can someone only 1 be so adorable. Honestly, I could have eaten him! Not going to lie, he has language all his own that could rival my daughters so I felt a little extra attached to these guys! I’m pretty sure if we put the two of them in a room it would be nothing short of amazing to watch. Hey if there are successful reality shows about people who hunt ducks then these two should have no trouble getting a tv deal.
