The B-Y Family at Home

I feel really fortunate to be the photographer that this family welcomed into their home on a Saturday afternoon, to document what life looks like with their 7 year and 6 month old boys!  Because they now feel like good friends to me (it’s not my first time photographing this crew), I actually was a little bit sad leaving their house. Mom and dad are doing it all. They are extremely hard working, fun, busy people that always find time for each other and their boys.  Mom can multitask like I wish I could. I’m sort of in awe of what she can accomplish seemingly all at once!

Their two amazing boys keep them on their toes and going non-stop. Weekend getaways, family dinners, trips to the park, Mario Cart sessions (where big brother crushes everyone)… it’s always something but they are always together.  Quality family time is clearly important to this bunch and it shows.  Big brother is the smartest, most social young man that I’ve every met. Little brother is an absolute heartbreaker with the most ridiculously cute facial expressions. You cannot get enough of either one.

Like I said, I get a little sad when their sessions are over because spending time with such great people just makes you happy.  Here’s a look at why I don’t ever want to leave there place.  If they invite me back again, they are going to have to kick me out 😉
