It’s our pleasure to officially induct Amy+Ben into the CSP 5 Timer’s Club (yep – it’s like hosting SNL, but being on our blog instead… which is just as good, right?)! Their most recent shoot was their maternity session with us in January, and on that blog post, I also link to all the other sessions in their past if you’re interested, which you should be, because Amy+Ben are GREAT! And (to no one’s surprise), so is their new addition Nathan. Nathan is a champion sleeper. Like, a CHAMPION SLEEPER ALL CAPS. He slept through, quite literally, 98% of the session. Sounds and light did not disturb him, but he’s not a huge fan of outfit changes (who is?).

And it’s a good thing Nathan’s a stellar sleeper too, because I locked Amy, Ben, and their two-week-old infant out of their house on accident. We walked onto the porch for a couple pictures, and I closed the door behind me (in my defense, they have cats, and I did not want said cats to escape… also in my defense, I did not know the door would lock). We then realized we were locked out, and locked out with a newborn. But because Nathan is a CHAMPION SLEEPER ALL CAPS, he literally did not notice. We were outside for about 30 minutes and he didn’t wake up because he’s a boss. Thankfully, it was nice out, and more thankfully, Amy and Ben know us very well so they weren’t mad and it wasn’t awkward to wait on their porch for 30 minutes while a locksmith came (I am so sorry you guys). Whooooops. Now I know. And let this be a warning to you all not to let me near your doors.

Team Emmerika. // At Home.

Erika and Emmanuel are like our celebrity clients. Most people who read our blog know who they are and frequently ask us about them like they’re unicorns, or pass along creepy compliments to them through us. Example: “That one couple is really cute. You know… the Emmerika couple. The guy has the dreadlocks? Yeah, they seem super cool.”… then they just leave it at that and I’m not sure what to say (besides the obvious which is yes, they are quite cool). Well now we’ll see where your loyalty truly lies because Emmanuel has since cut off his dreadlocks! BUT he gained a cool faux hawk… and a puppy. So I’m pretty sure the numbers are still well in their favor. Plus their house has a tree house in the backyard. Family facts:

Emmanuel: loves video games and pizza and not sleeping
Erika: loves baked goods and movies and kittens
Lobo[gray cat, not terribly pictured because…]: loves everybody leaving him the hell alone
Mango[calico cat]: love being derpy and chittering at birds and the bird-like toy
Habanero[tuxedo cat]: loves EVERYONE OMG PET ME RIGHT NOW
Bino[puppy]: loves chew toys made of gross parts of bulls that we won’t put in the blog or else our blog will start coming up for search results we do not want

Look at how cute they are.
