I was counting down the days to this family's session in Plymouth and as it approached, I wasn't liking what the weather supposedly had in store for us. It was raining all day on that Friday and Erin and I were both crossing our fingers and staying hopeful the rain would pass, despite what our phones showed. Well, the rain wasn't in our favor that day as it didn't stop... and I was SO bummed! Luckily, we were able to find another evening that worked with her busy schedule of being a board certified behavior analyst. Oh, and an amazing mom to three. I'm fairly (100%) certain it was meant to be on this night after all; we had great lighting and it was perfect Fall weather!
As Erin's two daughters jumped out of her car, I basically shouted "Oh my gosh you are so adorable! Those outfits! Those boots!". No, I have never met them before and they were probably wondering why their mom brought them to this lady. To say I was excited would be an understatement and when you see the photos, you'll get it. We headed over to my secret spot and played around on the bridge and took mom & daughter photos while we waited for dad and little brother to arrive. When little brother came with dad, again, I got super excited, and, again, you'll get it. He was pretty shy at first and wasn't feeling the whole picture-taking thing. After I showed him what was behind my camera and chased him around a little bit (we all know I adore playing with kids, and if you don't, now you do) he opened right up. His smile is contagious and his blue eyes are going to get him into trouble with the ladies one day!
Erin, thank you for allowing me to capture the ginormous amount of love (and sillines), that's in your family!
