Nikki and Chris really wanted to update their family photos. However, they both expressed concern with how their boys would cooporate during the session. When I got an email from Chris saying, “Tommy is going to be impossible,” I totally understood their anxiety over having family pictures. Does this sound familiar to anyone else?!?!
I’m sharing this because I think a lot of people out there share these same feelings. I have found myself avoiding photographing Ross because I know what the outcome will be one of two things: HEAD DROP/AVOID EYE CONTACT or HUGE, FAKE smile.
Although it may be hard to get some kids to sit still and smile, I still encourage everyone to CAPTURE those MOMENTS! Here’s one of my favorite shots of Tommy. Although it’s not your ‘typical’ portrait, I love it because it’s a REAL smile and, better-yet, it represents Tommy’s energy and personality.

Chris & Nikki prefer natural photography. I think this image reflects their relationship…
I have a few more I wanted to share, but I’m getting your entire gallery uploaded right now! Thanks for asking me to photograph your fun, active, sweet and funny family. I think you could see I had a great time with them!
Hi Christy. Thank you so much! We are very pleased with how you took impossible boys and made beautiful memories for us. Please let us know when you’ll be back in Arizona!
