Pike Family – Eskimo Kisses

Meet some of the coolest dressed kids we’ve met! We loved the colors, they were perfect for spring. It’s no wonder that their grandmother designs clothing. This trio was not only cute, but hilarious too! Melanie kept tickling her kids and we ended up with some great laughing shots.

When we said to the kids, “touch noses” this is what we got!

When mom said, “no, they mean Eskimo Kisses” they did this!

What characters these two are! While we were taking photos they decided to lay down and did this next pose on their own (right). You can tell these guys have such different personalities…I’m thinking serious vs. silly.

What we love about the next two are how expressive their faces are. Jordan tried to kiss his sister and the look on her face says something like, “I don’t think so!”  Then in reverse when Mikayla tried to kiss her brother his look makes you think something mischievous is about to happen. Oh siblings!

Kisses for mom! Thank you Melanie, Mikayla, and Jordan.

Pagan Family – Boys Will Be Boys

What fun we had with these boys! You’d think Lisa and Dave would have their hands full with 4 boys, but Kale, Noa, Kai, and Kekoa were extremely respectful and well-mannered. We truly thought it was going to be tough getting them all to participate in the shoot, but it was one of the most relaxing nights!

This is certainly an active family. The oldest three are currently in baseball, but enjoy all kinds of sports throughout the year and the youngest is at the age where he’s crawling all over the house!

Kekoa was just getting his first two teeth and was proudly showing them off with huge gummy (and a tiny toothy) grins. Our favorite thing was that he liked to feel them with his tongue and consequently stuck his tongue out at us often (in the cutest way) that made us all laugh.

We loved the energy of this family, even if it was a lot of testosterone. They obviously love one another and make the time to be together as a family. Thanks guys!

Sobota Family – Swinging Josie

What an absolutely adorable family this was! When we first met the Sobotas we at once knew they were going to be special. You could tell there was an abundance of love and joy in this family and they were excited to share their photo shoot with soon-to-be baby #2!  The entire photo session was laid back, fun, and playful. Just the way we like it!

You can tell Erin and Dave are incredibly patient, hands-on parents with the way they swung Josie around again and again just to make her giggle for the camera (and for fun too).

This couple was convinced we might not get a smile out of Josie (and were totally okay with that…it’s hard being almost 2!), but we were all happily surprised to see her toothy grin in this next photo! Many parents forget about getting their own photos taken so we always make it a point to get them alone while one of us chases the kids around. We love this happy picture of Erin & Dave, laughing, keeping their eye on Josie, and still in love.

Thank you Erin, Dave, and Josie! We loved watching you playing together, sharing your happiness with us.

Kiyoi Family – Take My Photo!

Although it was only 9:30am the temperature started rising into the 80’s while we were starting this photo shoot. Even so, the Kiyoi family walked, took off their shoes, and were exceptionally down to earth throughout the entire session.

We could not believer our luck in finding these wildflowers. When we asked if the family could get in the middle of them for a photo they jumped right in without hesitation!

Our most memorable saying from the session is when girls kept telling us, “take my photo!” and would quickly pose for the camera. Too cute!

Miles was happiest when he was playing, unbeknownst to the photos rapidly being shot around him.

It was wonderful taking your photos Kiyoi family!  Don’t wait 8 years for your next session.:)

Oberman Family – Hanging Out

These two were quite a pair. We couldn’t believe how well they listened, followed directions, and showed politeness towards us and each other. We thought teenagers were supposed to act the opposite! We felt like we were all just hanging out.

This brother and sister duo are active in sports and after school activities, but they had some time during spring break to meet us for these sibling photos.

The park was almost our own that day and our models were happy to be hiking around, playing with friends, watching goslings, and throwing rocks. Thanks for a great afternoon Obermans!
