A family that I hold near and dear to my heart is the Q family. They have graced my blog several times since I started my business in 2007…and I will always be forever grateful to them for their adorableness that helped build my portfolio. They are close friends to Neil and me, and lil’ J (who is now 5!!!) and R (nearly 2.5!!!) were our ring bearer and flower girl, respectively.
For their family session, they wanted to do a bit of an urban shoot. Which is PERFECT for them as they are such a cool, hip (sometimes even PUNK) family. Their personalities are always oozing all over the place. I hope these photos do them justice.
I’ll start with one of my faves. (Although this doesn’t say much since I picked the blog-worthy pics according to my favorites. haha)….
Our pal, Ashley, had come along to help distract the kids so we could take some pictures of just the parents, too. There was something that Ashley had that succeeded in keeping R busy…unintentionally.
The family changed their outfits… at the shoe store that Mike’s parents own… American Shoe. Head in there if you’re looking for super cool kicks!
I stole mom and dad away one more time. And I’m so glad I did.
J had toooo much fun…
And I’ll close with a special composite I made. We used the backlit walls of American shoe for individual silhouettes. And I was thankful that the kids listened when I asked them to sit there and be still.
Mike, Tisha…and J & R…. much love to you all…and I hope this gets you through to the next time you need the services of lil’ ol’ me.xoxo!
