Finally, after years and years and years of being their sister-in-law…they finally let me give them a full blown session. Not a quick 10-minute get a few pics of our daughter, but a full hour of photo taking. My niece Hailey turned one recently and what better time to get the family together (with makeup on even) doing what they do best…loving each other and playing. Yeah, the wine before the session may have helped. The benefits of shooting family…I can drink on the job.
I’m just going to start with I wished they lived closer. 45 minutes away is too far. I love each of these three people.
Aren’t they so cute? I know Hailey is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. But watching them interact was awesome. They like to tickle toes…
…and grab mommy’s nose…
…and eat daddy’s nose…
…and play stinky toes. Even with Bella. A very unwilling participant.
Hailey is one, so she’s walking! Wobbly, but walking.
Daddies are the greatest for throwing babies all over the place.
But what I really wanted was a nice, sun-kissed, standing, one year old portrait of my beautiful niece. I love these pouty lips and big eyes.
But parents always want smiley photos.
She got this cool wagon as a birthday gift and looooves it.
I mean, she really loves it.
She’s this cute in person. Too much to handle actually. Perfect. They should procreate like 10 more times until Ali’s boobs sag down to her belly button and no longer can run marathons because she’ll be peeing in her panties. Yep, I just wrote that.
Then Bella decided to steal the show and stand directly in front of me. She’s such a social anxiety ridden diva.
Kisses for mommy, and head butts for daddy.
Then we switched outfits and locations thinking she still had some gas in her.
But we were wrong.
