Oh I just adore this family! They have the best attitude no matter what hits them in the face. It’s so hard to get two little kids and yourselves ready for a photo session, but they had everyone dressed perfectly! And then the temperature dropped, so they put more layers on the kids. And then as we were driving to a second location (the one Amanda had really wanted most of all!), they got a flat tire. Super flat. Then the kids were unsettled and there were some (totally age appropriate) meltdowns. I felt so bad because I know all the effort that goes into getting a family ready for photos! But these guys kept their cool, calmly proceeded and helped the kids settle down. It was precious to see them working together as a family and not sweating the small stuff! I always imagine clients will look back on their photos and remember these things and laugh. Parenting can be crazy tough, but that’s what creates those memories.
