It took a little while to coax this one into being a part of the family’s photo session… But it didn’t take too long. Soon he realized we’d just be playing and hanging out like any other day. There were lego creations to build… And a football to be tossed around. And then, grandma and grandpa came by. This is no ordinary grandma/grandpa duo! These two watch the boys often. She makes them gorgeous scrapbooks every year, full of her beautiful photographs of their memories. And they both have awesome relationships with both grand kids. They are super involved in their lives!After the greeting, it was back to football. This next picture CRACKS ME UP. So good, the three of them just chatting while these two take each other down. The energy in these two bodies is remarkable. The ability to take a beating, immense. And the love (yes, the love!) in every minute of these tackles was so completely there. They crack each other up, tick each other off, beat each other up, and show each other love in little ways just like brothers do.
They’re really good brothers. Sometimes, they need a minute to themselves. And they bring a whole lot of joy to those who love them. And yep, we got in that kinda-posed one, too. Of everyone.I love it when grandparents are part of the session. I love it when sessions are at home! I love to see families just be themselves while I photograph them doing their thing: loving and laughing and living the every day.
When I brought her their album, Jill (mom) said something along the lines of: “I’ve been getting these Christmas cards and they’re nicely dressed and posed, which is great for those families. But we wanted something different. We wanted this.”
I love this! So grateful to Jill and her family for giving me a peek into their lives. Thank you!
If you would like me to document your family’s everyday at home, I’d love to share with you some other family sessions I’ve been honored to photograph!
