I was so happy when this mom saw my facebook post advertising the summer mini sessions and jumped at the idea of some updated family portraits. We have gotten to know each other over the last year because our five year old sons were in the same pre-school class. She was the room mom too, by the way, and did a great job all year coordinating parties, and teacher gifts and helping out when ever needed. With three boys and a hubby to take care of, I've come to the conclusion that this mama is always on the go! Plus she also sells amazing jewelry! Check out her facebook page here. I have to say I secretly admired her great style from afar every week during the drop-off/pick-up at school. Seriously, always so put together and smiling. One of those moms you see and think, "How does she do it?" I also have to give her a shout out for perfectly coordinating the outfits for their portrait session. Each person complimented the next, without being too matchy. Kudos to you, Casey!
I knew this session was going to be great once I met the rest of the family, again at my favorite place, Mingo Creek Park. Three energetic and handsome boys gave me some great smiles and of course laughs!
Meet the Watson Family...
I firmly believe that you have to be a little silly when it comes to family photo shoots. So I always ask the kids to relax for a bit and give me their best silly face. Well this time I got this little gem. I seriously laughed out loud when this image popped up on my editing screen! Awesome.
By letting them have a some fun, it makes my job at getting shots like this even easier...
Such a good lookin' fam!
There isn't anything much stronger than the bond between brothers...

What great energy these three have! I wish I could bottle some of it!
This is one of my all time favorite family shots! Thank you again for letting me capture it and all of the other images! I hope you treasure them in the years to come.
