Yes, the title is correct. This is a ‘mini’ session, meaning the session was only 30 minutes in length. And yes, that’s the family pictured below with 21 (twenty.one) smiling faces. I don’t typically work with this large of a group in such a short time frame but this gathering of families from as far as Florida was a moment I wanted to help them capture. I arrived on this extra chilly and windy afternoon to catch them just before their Christmas meal. They managed to look completely content through their cold chills and hunger pangs for lots of loving photos. Happy Holidays everyone!
Every time I photograph Eliza, I’m pleasantly surprised by the growth of her personality. On this particular day, Eliza warmed up to me quicker than ever. *yesssss* At the end of our session her mom gave her a plate of chocolate chip cookies for the first time ever! Eliza wasted no time in taking one single bite out of each and returning them neatly to the plate. Ha! Kids do the cutest things!
When Ashley asked me to do photos of her family for a second time, I was pumped! The first session was last spring and involved massive storm clouds and chickens. Now, here it is fall and her babes have grown so much! We met at the park for a mini-session filled with beautiful sunlight, homemade cookies and a warm blankie for Daddy. Haha! What fun these guys are!
