"There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of humans, are created, strengthened, and maintained."
I had such a lovely time with this family, photographing them in their home. They are pretty laid back, which made for an easy going session. It was great. I have been friends with Mom for a while now and our kids are friends with each other. The kids had no fear showing off and wanting to do all of their best tricks and bring out their favorite toys. They were comfortable right off the bat, and I find that a lot with in-home sessions. The kids are completely in their comfort zone and there is usually just a very small adjustment period, if any at all.
You can see by these pictures that little sister is completely adored, especially by big sister. Is there anything sweeter than sisters? Brother brought lots of adventure to the session. We had fun jumping off the bed, dancing and spinning, wrestling, snuggling, and playing a family favorite game: Sorry! It is always so neat to watch how different families interact with one another and what their family dynamics are like. What I do see with every single family that I have the privilege of photographing is that there is a lot of love. It is an incredible thing to witness and I love trying to capture a family's story. No two are the same, but all are so beautiful.
