Family portraits don’t always have to involve standing and posing — and this adorable session with 9-month-old Tristen and his family proves just that. Tristen was up and at it early on a Saturday morning to show me his routines. And what a great photo shoot it made! We stood up at the side of his crib, watched birds out his bedroom window, played with his favorite penguin and even prepped for close ups in the bathroom mirror. After some solid play time, we snapped some fun family shots in Cody and Arlene’s hometown. Then, ventured out to the country roads to play in the creek and set the tone for more great photos.
I can’t tell you how much I love these shots. And for one amazing reason: this is real life! With a bustling baby around the house, bottles and hands full of toys are part of everyday — there’s no need to try to hide that. These are the real moments in families that are absolutely worth capturing and holding close, because little ones really will grow up much too fast.
