From the moment I walked into the Khoury home, I knew this was going to be an amazing family lifestyle session. There was a major storm coming in on the radar but we were determined to get Nicky's first birthday photos done! I quickly set up for a couple indoor shots of this awesome little man and no sooner did I have my camera in my hand, little Nicky climbed right up in my lap! I was in love and already planning an arranged marriage with my little Charlianne.
This little guy has a love of chapstick and wanted to hold it for the ENTIRE shoot. This is what I love most about lifestyle photography, it is all about capturing real life and when the family look back on these photos they will laugh at his funny obsession.
With a storm approaching we needed to move quickly once we were outside. This was NOT a problem with this group:). Nicky's big sisters and big brother were so helpful and cooperative that we got all of the shots that we wanted to get!
I had brought some balloons and bubbles thinking that Nicky would love them...boy was I wrong! He started crying any time he got near the balloons and was truly terrified of the bubbles. We quickly ditched both! My little red wagon was a hit though! When we did their REVEAL NIGHT I was sure to bring a bucket of bubbles for the girls to play with so Nicky gets used to them.
The original plan was to do some photos of the kids playing in the pool but mother nature was not cooperating and the rain moved in. NEXT TIME! I think this was a great idea by mom and I would love to do a whole "pool themed" session. How fun!
The connection between this family shows in every one of these images. I love the interaction between everyone and loved capturing so many sweet moments.
We wrapped up the evening and the girls invited me up to their bedroom to take some photos of them playing with their little brother. It was truly the sweetest thing I had ever seen. BEST MOTHER'S HELPERS EVER!
I am truly honored to have been introduced to this wonderful family by my mentor Anna Bartell from the Snap Society. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
