Meet Laura and la familia, with their newest addition, adorable Mila. Honestly, it did take a few weeks to get on Laura's calendar to do this portrait session. Can you blame her? It's summer time and with 2 kids and a newborn, she certainly has no shortage of activities and things to do! And, to be honest (again), I had met Mila long before - at Laura's maternity session and officially when she was about an hour old! Laura had a really specific vision for this session, mainly "I want the session in our bedroom and I want the kids to do whatever they want". Of course, that entailed jumping on the bed, watching cartoons and lots of laughing and being goofy! I loved how she just wanted to really capture her family just being themselves in their own sanctuary. Reese and Owen are so fun to photograph, both very expressive in their own individual ways. It was also hilarious (says the one who doesn't have kids) to get a shot of Laura just being a Mom, exasperatingly giving up on trying to get a photo of the 3 of them with baby Mila at the top of the stairs. What can you do? As I've learned and witnessed over the many years of being a photographer, when children are involved, you just have to see what you get! I love surprises! And, I love this family to the moon and back! Enjoy!
