Rory 9 months

Rory 9 months

After all these years and hundeds (if not thousands) of baby portrait sessions, I have discovered my FAVORITE day to photograph a baby.  Its the day they discover their “surprised” face!  I giggled at Rory non-stop through the session because he just discovered this reaction and did it a LOT for me!  He is always such a sweet, fun baby to photograph, but just look at his surprised face and try not to laugh!

Tallahassee summers are just brutal.  The intense heat and humidity really limit sessions outside to the hour after sunrise and the hour just before sunset.  I was so thrilled that the Kellers joined me just after sunrise at the lake at Southwood.  We got to play and get the portraits in just before Miss V was ready for a nap!

CHAOS!  LOL  What else can you say about a session with a five year old, 18 month old, two grown doggies and a puppy?  While the session may have been a whirlwind, its a true representation of this time in the lives of the McFarland Boys.  This is real life– its dirt, bugs, a grumpy face and an unexpected snack.  While it isn’t “perfect” by textbook standards, in twenty years this momma will look back on her boys and remember all the chaos fondly and she will cherish these moments of wild boys and dogs!

Too often we stop taking family portraits once our kids become tweens.  There is always a reason not to, but we overlook the reasons we should!  These years are just as important as when these children were toddlers.  They will one day want to remember this time with you and showing these impressionable brains that THEY are the most beautiful art you could ever hang on your walls has such impact!

A family portrait session was even more important for this blended family who don’t always live together.  Though their visits together may be brief, their love and connection isn’t!  I am so glad I was able to capture these before their busy lives scattered them across the country again!

Halle Claire MUST become an actress when she grows up.  This little diva has acting down pat already!  When things displease her, she will plop herself down and scream.  When she gets what she wants or if we could distract her with something else she would be TOTALLY fine.  It was absolutely hilarious to watch her theatrics!
