Watching kids grow has been a rewarding and fantastic experience for me. I am so fortunate to watch so many stages of their development. Saturday, I photographed the Tucker family – a family that holds a special place in my heart.
Kaylee will turn one this month. She is the most beautiful child and such a delight! I am amazed at her eyes and melt in her happy disposition.
I just love her hands in this image. It was as if I say “Kaylee, fold your hands”.
Big sister Gianna has always been photogenic. She really follows directions. What I love about Gianna is her desire to please. While I was there, she was sure I was well taken care of with fruit snacks and marshmallows.
Benji is at that magic age where smiling naturally is a challenge! He was determined though, to really really try. He didn’t want to give up and I think we finally nailed it!
When I saw this image in the back of my camera, I sighed a big breath of relief. Three kids smiling great! That’s a wrap! A beautiful family and a photo you will look back on for years.
Of course, I am convinced that our great luck with smiles had more to do with the presence of Tinkerbell than anything. The smile on her face in this outfit was priceless. I think I will have to bring her along for the rest of my shoots this year!
