Oh, every time I blog about this family, I am always boasting about them. They have been with me since my doors opened over 5 years ago, have grown with me, and I have watched them grow into a family of 5. Scott and Ashley are so down to earth, laid back and fun to be around. They are constantly cracking jokes about life and life with kids. They make having 3 kids look easy. Claire was less than pleased that we were taking her 6 month baby photos. She gave me about 1.5 smiles the entire session – which her mom and dad were sure to tell me was a successful session with her because she isn’t one to amuse easily. I was fine with that – babies at this age look cute no matter what they do, right?
Cora and Callen……well, we had fun chasing each other, modeling, pretending we were princesses and TV characters while Claire had a time out with mom and dad. I love the way they look at Claire – the look of unconditional love. Priceless. These kids will be close growing up, I can see it.
Even though this session was centered around Claire, I am so glad we took some time for Cora and Callen too. Cora’s personality radiated during this session. She lights up the room when she walks in, has a genuine love of life and is one of the happiest humans I have ever met in my life. I hope she carries this with her for her whole life. She is serioulsy excited about everything she does. Do you see her jumping up and down and that ear to ear smile on her face? She wows you!
Callen – holy moly. When did he get so big. He is such a good big brother and little clone of his dad. He is one of the coolest kids I know. Just as laid back as his dad – again, like his little clone. He definitely looks after his sisters with a purpose. He is so lovable and willing to please. He started kindergarten this year, and for some reason, that makes him seem to grown. I look forward to watching him grow as the years go on.
