Lifestyle sessions are my jam, especially with little tinies involved! It can be so stressful on the babies, the parents, and the photographer to have all this pressure to just get the "perfect" shot of everyone smiling and looking at the camera. While that's still always one goal, to get at lease one of those shots, everyone has so much more fun when we can just play.
I like to just be present for a normal afternoon in their household. It helps kids cooperate for photos if you just let them do the things they normally do!
This family had a gorgeous house and such a beautiful family, and a perfect black cat! We played baseball, jumped on mom and dad's bed, did some puzzles, and so many hugs and kisses were involved.
