Sometimes you meet a family and immediately find out you have so much in common. Mom is a fellow photographer that also shoots with a Nikon D700 and adores backlighting was our instant connection. Fellow mom of two, split level home owner, plus lover of mid century modern and Ikea are a few others. Top that all with a gorgeous family with awesome bow ties and union jack socks and you have one happy photographer.
We had an awesome concert to attend in the living room with the cutest music stand.
All too often, mom and dad do not have a photo of them together since their wedding. During every session, I like to get a few couples shots, especially since I know now that kids are in the picture, this is a rarity. When the parents are this gorgeous, it makes my job very easy.

The downfall of being the photographer in the family is that you are never in the family photos. Over time it adds up and becomes a real problem. How will your children get to appreciate the special times you spent together if they never see you in them. I was honored to capture those special moments with mom and her two boys, knowing that she has so many beautiful photos of her husband with the boys. The boys were so adorable with mom. And doesn’t every mother need a picture of them eskimo kissing with their child? My answer is yes. They are the cutest.
