These children are special to me because they are my cousins beautiful kids. I know many of you have millions of cousins, my husbands side of the family has more cousins than I could possibly figure out in my life time. But the English family is small, very small. I could count all my English cousins on just over one hand. Fortunately, we grew up close to my only uncle, and as a child I practically lived at their house during the summers. We vacationed together while our dads ran marathons, we went to school together.... we dated the same boys (embarrassing to admit!). I have more memories with the mother of these 3 kids than probably anybody else in the world, except my husband. I love to spend time talking with her because she truly knows me, she has witnessed my whole life. How lucky am I to have some like that in my life! I couldn't be more honored to witness her life either because she is a truly amazing person. I feel so lucky to have the excuse to photograph her kids because it means our memories together will continue to grow.
The reason for this session was to complete the set of black and white head shots we have of her kids around 8-9 months of age. I love the way she frames the B&W image with a big square white matte and red frame. It's so classic!
The outfit this cute kid is wearing was his fathers as a baby. So glad we were able to capture the heirloom!
S, I know we weren't able to do a family portrait but I was thinking maybe we could do something really awesome outdoors when the weather warms up. I have a ton of ideas that I think would be perfect for your family. Please know I would jump at the chance to do another session!
Thanks again J Family for coming over to my house. S, I really think you are a classy act and have always been honored when people asked if we were related. I hope you're feeling well and that your month of February is OVER.
S, I forgot to tell you that if you can get 12 people to comment on this blog you get a mini-accordion album. I think this session would be awesome as a mini album because it features all your kiddos! You can see details below on the other entries.
