This little man came to meet me as soon as he was born! We had a blast at his newborn and 3 month sessions! Now, we got to spend some time together giggling and wiggling during his 6 month session. I am so looking forward to his 1st birthday…coming soon!
This sweet baby is going to have an amazing story. A family that came from Oklahoma to take him to his forever home had the biggest smiles and most warm hearts that you could have. To get to snuggle with their hero, was an honor!
This family is one of my favorites for so many reasons. They are always smiling, laughing, having fun, showing each other love…..so I shall go on. It was fun to go to a “new” place for their family pictures. I enjoyed reliving the shoot though my editing.
So when you grow up, you are lucky to have such a childhood filled with memories like I did. Those memories included my best friend in almost every single one. Then, one day the move and you lose touch. BUT, there is this amazing thing called Facebook and it connects you back again. And when she calls and says “Hey, I need family pictures”……you scream outloud! Its been WAY too many years!!!!
Doing photography shoots with kiddos come in different stages. When they are 1, they question what you are doing. When they are 2-3, you chase them around. When they are 4-5, they start to pose!!! We have gone though all the stages with this little man and this last shoot was the best of the best. He smiles, he laughed, he posed, he snuggled….made my heart just happy! Love this family!
So the part of Chunky Monkey that I love on top of the photography part is meeting families and being a part of watching them grow. The first time you meet, the little ones are a bit shy and question who you are and what you are doing with that camera. Then after time, you become friends and the hugs and laughter you get goes along with “job”. This family is a blast to shoot with and I always look forward to seeing them at their Chunky Monkey Family shoots!
