We knew we were going to like this family before we even met them. In our email correspondence Cherie warned us about her daughter Serena, saying that it’s hard to get a smile out of her and that she just had her 3rd birthday, but thinks she is 4. What a character Serena turned out to be! She had us laughing from the start.
Our time with Serena was spent picking up rocks, collecting them, throwing them…pretty much anything to do with rocks. The funny thing is when we asked Serena how old she was she said, “I’m 3,” which apparently was the first time she got it right!
Serena was also very sweet. She laughed and played with us. She listened to her parents and they were extremely patient with her, which we imagine is hard to do when you are 8 months pregnant.
Cherie was absolutely beautiful in her navy dress showing off her baby bump. She seemed to glow in each photo we took of her. While we were taking these loving shots of Cherie and Steve, Erik was Serena’s entertainer. He had her giggling and squealing. What about? Rocks!
The whole session Cherie and Steve were talking about how Serena liked to jump, but she wouldn’t show us! Finally, in the last two minutes of our shoot she was like a pogo stick, bounding all over the place. Congratulations on your soon to be new addition Parpan family!
