Poor Shelly has had to wait way too long for her peek! I guess its never too late, and she has to wait until Thursday to see all of them, so she begged I figured I’d be nice 🙂 I happen to love their session. I know I say that every time, but I seriously mean it. I have been loving my families lately. I truly feel like this is my niche. [insert sound of gasping photographers all over the country here]. Don’t get the wrong idea, I’m not taking myself too seriously, its just that most photographers would rather eliminate families all together because they really can be difficult. I just feel like its what I’m supposed to do. I love the imperfection of it all. That’s what real life is anyway, right?? imperfect. and glorious.
The Varins’ home was perfect for a few pictures. I actually love the images much more when I don’t over prepare and I go to a location I’ve never been [again, insert other photographers breaking into hives here]. I had contemplated making the drive out to their house the week before, but I decided to trust what I know and go in with an open mind. I think this is a new policy because I tend to love the outcome more when its all spontaneous. Much like me I guess. I’m a sort of fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl. My Nana calls it “free spirit” which is really just a nice word for well … I dont know, but I dont think its positive. I’ve come to grips with it, though. Ok, back to the Varins.
So, I see this sofa right when I walk in … Jackpot! AND, they are wearing black and white. Well, I’ll quit blabbing so you can see this cute family.
Are they not the cutest … ever? Maurie squints her eyes and squishes her nose when she laughs and Ethan grits his teeth like he’s up to something …
Look at those beautiful blue eyes!
Something mischievous about his little grin, doncha think?
Ok, now you are about to get the candid family BOMB. I just love these types of images, so there. You get to see lots of them.
Um … I wonder where Maurie gets her adorable smile/ laugh?
One of my favorite family images. ever. just love me a pile of arms and legs.
I know you want to take them home now. so cute.
Hope you enjoy, Shelly!
