When Tressa reached out to me, she warned me that she wasn't sure how her 5-year-old and 1-year-old would do and that she just wanted a couple of decent photos of them as a family.
With kids that age, you never know how they're going to react and I have nothing but respect for the parents who take on the challenge of having family photos made at that age.
We scheduled around sweet Joseph's nap time for optimal cooperation and met in Alabaster on an unseasonably warm Sunday morning.
These kids were a blast. Did they do great with sitting down to take traditional photos? No, but most kids don't at this age. Instead, we got to run and play with them for an hour and really got the chance to see their personalities shine through.
Often times, my favorite photos are the ones I capture while playing with kids. They may not be super "portrait-y" but they truly show who the child is, and isn't that what pictures are for anyway?
Thank you Tressa and Jeremy for giving us the chance to capture your family!
