Meet Sasha and Robert! Yes, like Sasha and Bob, even though Robert hasn’t gotten to the point where he’s met Bob yet in the Walking Dead (we told him he needs to catch up and keep going). They have a really cute three-year-old named Cooper who is very enthusiastic, and a very calm and level-headed 5-month-old named Everly. Sasha warned us that Cooper is kind of a ham and would work right away on winning us over, which he did. We were unpacking our gear from the car when he started frantically waving at us from the window of the house.

Once inside, we were immediately bombarded with dogs (Cobie – Terrier, cute. Ollie – Chow mix, cute.) and I went right to work petting them because I can’t resist anything fluffy. Cooper immediately broke us up so that he could show us his room and ask us to read books to him. Sasha warned me that he might try to lock us in his room and keep us there forever, so we were able to outsmart him and stood just outside the doorway… just in case. Later we all woke up Everly and immediately started taking her picture, and while this might be a recipe for disaster for anyone over the age of 12 with any degree of body awareness, it works just fine on babies.

We made cookies! We scootered! We played games! Bug the Cat made an appearance and let me pet him too! It was a successful day all around with no tears except from Everly who insists on standing in an upright position at all times. Look at our success!

It’s always such a great experience being invited into clients’ homes to photograph their family being themselves. I love seeing all the different houses and decorating styles, for one, but I also love seeing the different interactions between families. Every family is different, and our job photographing them is never the same twice. This family featured two beautiful little girls (one a little more vivacious, the other a little more serious) who enjoyed showing us their collections of stuffed bunnies, climbing in their treehouse and in their living room, jumping on their trampoline, skipping rope, and putting on their mother’s high heels. They are energetic, independent, and intelligent, and we just tried to keep up. :) Mom and Dad were super welcoming to us and were really interested in having all the different facets of their family documented due to Mom’s background in journalism, and we were happy to oblige. We had an awesome time meeting this fantastic family of four!
