Driving to this session, my windshield wipers were going furiously and everything outside looked grey and miserable. I knew we were going to have to get creative because this was another session that couldn't be postponed. Jeff's oldest kids were in town and so if we were going to do photos, it was now or never....well maybe not never, but not for a while :) . Watching the weather reports used to stress me out but I have learned that it always works out. Truly.
We met up at Union Station in Tacoma and used their lovely entrance way as a wonderful dry spot with gorgeous lighting. Jeffrey, the older brother, was chasing around his little brother and sister, keeping them warm and laughing. Everyone was ready to roll and I was so pleased with the images we came up with.
It was obvious to me that little Hannah and Jacob are pretty thrilled to have the attention of such a great big brother and sister.
LOVE this one.
Jeff and Shannon were just thrilled to have all their kids together for this session.
My beautiful friend Shannon has this nice big wall in their home that she's hoping to fill up with some family pictures. I think you have a few goodies to choose from, my friend.
See those amazing curls on little Jacob? His mom was sad that he was wanting to cut them off. Thank goodness we have some "before the haircut" pictures!
Amie and I had the same idea...of heading over to Hello Cupcake across the street. I took it as confirmation and off we went!
The family patriarch wasn't so sure that the pink was so manly but he was outvoted and managed to find a coconut cupcake that looked pretty inviting.
Love Jacob's sugar glaze going on as he scopes out the possibilities!
This place was fabulous! Big huge windows that let in tons of light, yummy treats, and lots of great details. Sigh. Too bad we had to suffer in there.
How sweet it is.
Oh, it was a wonderful time, especially when Jeff insisted that I be sugared up with the rest of them. I got to finish this session, visiting with my friends and eating my red velvet cupcake.
