Adelmann Family – Growing Gardens

We met the Adelmann family in Andrea’s parents’ backyard. What a beautiful oasis they’ve made it! Although the temperatures started rising it still felt cool in the shade of the trees. Throughout our photo session we smelled the fresh cut grass and blooming roses.

We couldn’t resist taking some snapshots of the roses, and their relaxed family dog, Max, seen above sunning and napping in the middle of the lawn completely unbothered by our photo session.

We love the spring colors they wore! It’s almost as if they were matching with the bright colors of the garden. What fun we had laughing with this family. And what an amazing background of cultures and history they come from. We could have just chatted away the entire session with this interesting family, but alas we still shot some great happy photos!

Three generations of beautiful women, both inside and out. Thank you Adelmann (and extended) family! We hope your family, like your garden, continues to grow bright and colorful.

Goldsmith Sisters – Princesses

Almost every little girl we’ve met talks about loving princesses. These two were no different. They loved talking about Disney Land and visiting Arielle and Aurora. As a treat Maddie was even allowed to bring her princess dress to the photo shoot and we spent the last 10 minutes having fun taking these super girlie shots.

We know she’s dressed as Bell, but doesn’t she look just like Cinderella losing her shoe (or in Maddie’s case…shoes) in this next one?

Hanna is Maddie’s sweet as can be sister. She was very tolerant of us taking photos of her and we love the innocence of her cute face.

The sisters had a lot of good times together picking flowers, running, looking for fish and playing Ring-Around-The-Rosie. Thank you girls! (or should we say Princesses?)

O’Toole Family – Sleeping Beauty

What a lovely family we met the other day! Erin and Nate told us our challenge was to get their son, Luc, to smile normally. We were up to the challenge and with their help snapped some great shots of his smile. We didn’t need any help with his sister, Reese. She surprised us all with model poses and broad smiles.

Erin and Nate are such loving parents. The whole family has a warmth about them that Erin says comes from their Mid-West roots. This family isn’t afraid to say many I love you’s!

These two were incredibly excited to get to the beach later that afternoon, although they were very good about posing for our camera in the meantime. We thought the beach was a great idea since the temperature was already rising close to 90!

We think these two looked like they were reenacting Sleeping Beauty. No kisses from brother though! Just tickles…

Thank you O’Toole family! We hope you had a great day at the beach!

Miu Family – Laughing

We met this darling family at Ed Levine Park as the light was beginning to fade – it was just perfect. The kids were hilarious and cute at the same time…and with 3 children under the age of 4, we had our work cut out for us. Luckily we had grandparents and numerous tricks up our sleeves to get all three happy and smiling. Edward, the oldest, didn’t need any help. While practicing for the photos earlier in the day he had gotten confused between the word smile and laugh so each time we said, “Edward smile!” he would push out hilarious forced chuckles, which in turn had everyone else grinning and in stitches, even us!

Poor baby Matthew had just been forced to wake up early from his nap and he was not happy. Thankfully he enjoyed the game Peek-a-Boo and watching his grandparents make funny faces. This photo, however, is before he was over the grumpiness of being woken up. We still love it though!

And then there was Alina, what a pretty, silly girl she was! We think she enjoyed posing for the camera as evidenced below…

Such a sweet family. We must give an award, or at least a mention, to the parents who were so adoring of their children and possessed the calm during the storm.

Here is our favorite sequence from the shoot. Matthew started with these utterly kissable lips on his own so we asked the others to join in…here’s how it went.

Thank you Miu family! What a pleasure it was meeting you. Your photos still make our cheeks hurt with nonstop grins…
