Photographing this family meant so much to me. Long story (kinda) short, this gorgeous mama became friends with my husband at the gym a few years back. They forced me to take my first ever spin class (thank you, BTW) and we’ve stayed in touch ever since! We were randomly talking one day about how we both got puppies, only to realize that we picked them out from the same litter. Our pups are BROTHERS – how cool!! We did not plan this but it sealed our little bond and I really couldn’t be happier to have them as friends and “puppy relatives” for life!
I was so excited that mom asked me to shoot a family session after their little passed her half-way-to-one milestone. Time is really flying for this family and they understand how important it is to make time for the 3 (4 – pups are family too) of them to just be together.
Their sweet baby girl, Callie, got the very best of each of their personalities. She is really so perfect, and um… hilarious. Her cute hair, big eyes, “monkey toes” and adorable facial expressions are just the best. Callie is one active baby. She loves to chew on books, stare at her big brother, roam the house in her walker and be outside. We did a little bit of everything while at home and ended things out in the snow!! It really doesn’t matter what she is doing… you just cannot be within 5 feet of her and not smile. My cheeks hurt when I wrapped this session because little Callie plasters a permanent smile on the face of those around her.
