Sometimes, when I meet a mom, I just know I'm going to LOVE photographing her and her family. Such was the case last year, when I met Laren, and her daughter Annika. They were part of a fundraiser called "Precious Portraits Contest" that I put together for Designing 4 Hope. Annika was beyond precious, and ran away with the contest, which won her family a free portrait session.
Finally, this fall, I had the opportunity to meet the rest of the family and get some fun photos of them at home, in their element. This family was awesome! The boys were super fun and full of energy, and Annika was the perfect mix of beautiful princess and "I can keep up with my brothers, no problem!". Laren and Ed were relaxed and content, and seemed truly clued in to just how blessed they are with this amazing family.
Here are a few of my favorites from our session:
Laren and Ed, I hope you had as much fun as I did creating your portraits. Your boys are SO fun and so sweet, and Annika was just the icing on the cake! I loved watching you all love on each other and I hope that love shows through in your portraits.
You are such a wonderful family!
