Sunshine, Cuteness and Close Family

{Berkley,Michigan Family and Child Photographer Southeast Michigan Photographer}


Ok, so every time I shoot a session now, I leave thinking, THAT one was my favorite!  I suppose I’ll have to settle for having a “top-100 favorites” or something, but I’d say that this family session was among the top ten, at least.  It’s December, after all, so one would not expect a last-minute session to bring gorgeous late-afternoon sunshine and a family full of smiling faces.  The children were amazingly cooperative and affectionate, and the baby was just oozing cuteness so profusely that I was worried it might stain his clothes.  His brother and sister might disagree, since he seems to be a fan of hair-pulling, but they didn’t show it when they were showering him with kisses.  Ah, joy.  I love photographing families.
