I've said it before and I'll say it again, photographing old friends NEVER gets old! I love being invited into their homes, meeting their growing families, documenting memories for them and catching up. I really should count up the number of people I've photographed my from graduating class alone- not to mention other BCHS grads I knew from high school!!
So Mike and I went to Middle School and High School together- maybe even all the way back to Elementary School- but in my, a-hem, old age I can't remember back that far!!
Mike and his wife, Sandy, recently welcomed their second child to their family and asked me to come to their home to photograph them.
What a fine looking family!!
I love this photo so much and thinking back at the session we almost didn't even take this shot!
The session was great!! Their family is so sweet and I had a lot of fun capturing them- comfortable and natural right in their home- a perfect formula for great photos!
Their little guy warmed right up to my camera. A little help from some bits of chocolate and the promise of ice cream and he was the perfect model :-)
I absolutely adore this next shot- I'm totally going to recreate it with my own family and get it blown up HUGE for my family room!!
These next shots just melt my heart--they'll be bestest friends, I can tell!!
Fist bumpin' baby-- I LOVE it!!!
The sweetest little baby details!!
She was totally telling me she was boss...sticking her tongue out at me :-)
The baby's nursery was amazing-and so girly!! I love the mirrors on the wall!
Thank you O'Connell Family for inviting me into your home to capture your sweet family!
Best wishes as a family of four!! :-)
