I love photographing this family because it’s always different every time. Captured on a farm outside the city limits of Quincy, Illinois, the scenery is always beautiful. While the kids are photogenic, we do what we call a Lifestyle Session because it takes the kids a while to warm up to the camera. Less pressure when your goal is to capture life at this age for them … however that may be. Starting before supper, I came over and let the kids get used to me. This usually means sitting on the couch and paying them no attention while their mother makes supper. Their mother makes custom handmade items like knit sweaters and accessories, so sometimes I look through her projects and “Ooo” and “Ahh.” From here, they investigate me and sometimes I get my hair pulled or fingers in my ears. Sometimes Jack will show me some new fun toys or other items of interest. I show him my camera and how it takes pictures. We take some pictures of the latest toys, which are magnets and numbers. He loves his numbers. He shows me his sister and tells me she hasn’t been feeling well. She’s in a cranky mood. We take some pictures of her. She pouts (which is incredibly adorable in the photographs), and he thinks it’s funny (so I take some pictures of him laughing). We eat supper, and I set the camera on the table. By now, the kids are bored with it and myself—onto life as normal. After supper, Jack gets called to clean off his face. He yells … I take a picture of that incredibly adorable “mom face wipe.” We go outside and play in the field. Sitting in the grass as the sun goes down, the beautiful little family talks about things that make Jack happy, funny family memories, and snuggles with little sister. They give a few tickles and kisses and then head back to the house. The family photo session is done for the year and another round of beautiful photographs has been captured. Another chapter in the life of a growing family. Another set of priceless memories to enjoy as they grow up too fast.
