Remember seeing this family on the blog last December? I got an email from mom, Natalie, while I was in Texas for my grandfather’s funeral, asking to do another photo session this year. I LOVE photographing clients year after year, so I was obviously excited when she reached out to me. I was even more excited when I read the email and found out that she wanted to do the session when her extended family was going to be in town one weekend, so the session would document four generations all at once. Having just lost my grandfather and wishing I had done a similar session before he passed, there was no way I could miss the opportunity to photograph her with her loved ones.
To be completely honest, I was a little teary on the way to the session. I was also pretty nervous. Not because they weren’t welcoming and so sweet to work with, but because I knew how important these moments together are for this amazing family, and I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to capture them as they’d want to be captured.
Though little D was uninterested in having his photo taken, Natalie’s fun necklace and some chomping sounds aided in getting his attention, and we captured some fabulous moments with the entire family. Here are some of my favorites.
Thank you, Natalie, for inviting me to capture your family while they were all in town! It was so great to see you again and meet your family!xoxo, Lauren
