This adorable family drove all the way from Marietta to have their family portraits taken! With two children under that age or two, that is quite an undertaking! I know how difficult it is to make time for family photos! I wish I had done it more with my children when they were little. I treasure the photos that I have but, I still wish I had more professional portraits taken. I have all the school photos, the church directory portraits, the soccer pics and all the goofy every day pics. I still wish I had more! I can't go back in time. I can create memories for other families but, the time I had with my little ones is long gone. It is my goal for 2017 to get my children and their children together for a real family portrait. I know how difficult it is!! But, it is so worth the trouble!
Last year I photographed his older brother for his senior portraits. This year it was his turn. These boys have inherited some great genes! They are both handsome and intelligent. They are also both Eagle Scouts! The rank of Eagle Scout is achieved by only 4 percent of all scouts! It is no easy task. I know his parents are incredibly proud of both sons. I was glad to have to opportunity to photograph them. I love that he wore his kilt for some of his photos!!
It is fun getting to see this little guy grow and change as he comes in for his portrait sessions! I have been photographing him since he was born. This was his third session in his 1 year baby plan. He has developed such a fun personality and is very smiley and giggly. 8 months is such a fun age!
Is there anything cuter than a little girl playing with her dolls? Ordinarily a little wild child, when she has a baby to care for she suddenly becomes serious and loving: at least for a short moment! She is growing up so quickly! I love being able to freeze her sweetness with each click of my shutter. If only I could slow her down! Time marches on. All too soon she will be rocking real babies of her own. A fleeting moment of childhood captured in time forever. My truly adorable granddaughter!
This sweet little one recently celebrated her big milestone birthday by coming to Legacy Portraits for new photos. As a parent, I know just how quickly the first year goes by! It always amazes me that, in just one short year, baby goes from completely dependent to walking, talking and showing so much personality!! What a sweet and beautiful little girl she is! She loved being outside and playing with the bubbles! She was not a big fan of her cake though. It is always interesting to see how every child reacts differently to having a cake to dig in to. She was tentative and had to be coaxed to put her fingers in it. She explored it a bit with her toes too but, decided it was not worth the mess for her! She is such a doll! Happy 1st Birthday!
