Meet the Zitzmann family! This ship is captained by Vanessa and John (mom and dad) and their crew is Luke and Scott. Luke and Scott look remarkably similar, but Luke is two years older at 6 years. Vanessa is the sister of my friend Daniel and I had the pleasure of first meeting these guys at Daniel’s wedding in March. Fast family facts: John made a lot of faces in Daniel’s formal wedding pictures which Vanessa expressly forbid him to do in these portraits, and he tried his hardest to hold back. ;) Vanessa wanted the pictures done at Theatre in the Park where she spends a lot of time currently rehearsing for A Christmas Carol. And Luke and Scott like to run, jump, run, jump, run, run, run, jump, run, and hang out with their stuffed Yoshi from Super Mario. My kind of crew. Needless to say, we had a ton of fun running around! Afterward, Vanessa had a ton of fun getting leaves all over the dressing room floor, and I had a ton of fun getting the leaves out of my boots, socks, hair, etc. ;) Enjoy this super fun and adorable family!
…and afterward they collapsed into a pile of exhaustion. ;)
Some of you might remember Wrigley from Lori+Hassan’s engagement session back in January! Wrigley, a little Jack Russell Terrier, is an adddorable bundle of energy the love of this couple’s life! So Lori, a very faithful and wonderful client of mine, wanted to surprise Hassan with a session of Wrigley for his birthday on May 3rd. :) So we took these back in the verrry beginning of March (which is why these photographs look a little more wintery than recent) and I’ve been waiting to share them with you! But Lori broke a few days before Hassan’s birthday and showed them to him early, so I’ve been given permission to blog them now, hehehe.
So here’s Wrigley! Wrigley enjoys her green polka dot ball, cheering for UNC, and dancing around in her tutu. She is the most lovable energenic bundle of cuteness!! And for your information, Wrigley is named after Wrigley Field, as Hassan is a big Cubbies (and baseball!) fan.
Surprisingly, Wrigley isn’t motivated by treats. She was more motivated by this little polka dot ball, so I’d have to play tug of war with her in order for her to cooperate for the camera. But I was more than willing since she’s such a sweetheart! And I’d much rather take pictures of doggies doing their own thing than forcing them to sit still and pose. :)
Best. Picture. Ever.
Happy (early) birthday, Hassan!!! We hope it is a good one!! :) :)
