I can say that this is one of my favorite families to photograph… it is my dear brother, his beautiful (runner) wife and their two adorable kids. Both of these darlings are at the age where frankly, they could care less about family photos. Their parents pulled out crackers, promised treats and even offered the ability to skip a nap if only they could care about this moment. BUT … not caring is the photos I love to capture. It always makes me laugh (and sweat) while I try and capture the family in the same frame. : ) I always walk away from a session learning something new and today I learned that quiet time without a nap must really be a magical treat. Oh, if only somebody would send me to quiet time and require a nap…!!
As a side note, this little gem location was pointed out to me by another family who I photographed right after my brother. I couldn’t believe that Queen Creek had green trees in November! What a surprise!
