I don’t mind eating my Wheaties and working hard during a family session to engage with everyone and win the kids over,  but sometimes a family session can be easy peasy.  Photographing these friends every year is pure pleasure for me.  They are so laid back and Elijah is such a happy little dude that it’s pretty effortless.  Ashley and James engage with their little guy so well that it’s fun to capture their interactions.  Elijah is turning four in a couple weeks. He brought along his friend, Thomas the bear, and some of the things Thomas said to me had him giggling with such a great smile and bright eyes. Love.  Love, love, love.

We had a lovely mild day with misty fog.  I love the light that it created and the way that the branches looked in these images.  Winter in the northwest can be a great time for photos.
