I photograph a lot of other talented photographers, and Staci is no exception. When she contacted me to do her family session, she had a clear and concise idea of what type of session that she wanted. We gave ourselves two hours - the first hour of which we would shoot inside their beautiful home, and the 2nd hour would be shot outdoors at a gorgeous park. Staci and I joked that we would get the traditional shot out of the way first - the kind of shot that the grandparents would like, where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling :) Then, we would move on to what we both love the most, the candid, real, fun lifestyle images. We painted nails, jumped on the bed, red stories, and put together a puzzle. I truly believe that when you put a 2 1/2 year old and a 4 year old in an environment where they feel comfortable, you will get to see the real "them". It doesn't help that they are terribly well behaved :) I love this session and I hope you do too.
