Jimmy, Bree & Liz

The most laughing I’ve done on a shoot in a long time, these guys had me in stitches!! Liz contacted me to do a shoot with her and her siblings as a present of their parents wedding anniversary.  It was a nice change from the norm to do a shoot like this and these guys are so close it was so much fun.
We started off with some “formals’ at the house.These guys don’t like each other at all…….One of the on going jokes between them is if one of them isn’t’ there what kind of fun are the other two having with out them?
Jimmy seems left out in this scenario…
Awe, now Liz is left out!Meet Bree.Liz
And JimmyA good looking bunch.

It was so HARD getting these guys to smile, geeze.  🙂The last photo they had taken of the three of them professinoally was when they were in high school.  The time when it was “cool” to all wear the same thing, in this case white shirts and jeans. You know who you are out there and you know you have a similar picture to this that is hanging on your parents wall! Don’t deny it!
We thought it would be fun to relive the old days. 🙂 And have a good gag picture for the parents.
We even took it a step further, because well why not?
I just have to say you guys are awesome. 🙂
I hope your parents LOVE this.Hey there is a slideshow, look at that!

Baby June, Morris Arboretum Family Shoot

Its always a big compliment when another photographer asks you to photograph their family. Sarah is an awesome photographer and I was excited and admitadly  nervous when she asked me to photograph her family. Like all photographers she rarely gets photographs with the whole family, so its just as important for photographers to get shoots as it is for them to photograph other people. Does that make sense? Anyway, enough of the chit chat, I love this session!!

It was a gorgeous fall afternoon!June is such a cutie pie!!
A favoriteThey have been eagerly awaiting getting photographs with their matching shoes.Love it!

Check out the slideshow!
It was a pleasure doing this shoot for you guys!
