The Barnhill’s are not only a wonderful repeat client for me, but friends, so it is always a pleasure to spend some quality time photographing them!
Avery and Logan are a sweet set of twins for whom I have a super sweet spot for. They also happen to attend preschool with my daughter and their mom is the famous Allison Barnhill of Handmade by Allison (now Allison Barnhill Designs), so we already know each other pretty well! That makes our sessions really easy - and Avery and Logan definitely like to play (although I HAVE to wear my running shoes to keep up with Logan!), so it’s always a fun day in the park!
I met up with them at Quiet Waters Park on a sunny afternoon for a little fun and Avery and Logan were ready to go! We ran around and got some super cute shots of the kids and the entire family together. After our session I joined them for a quick lunch at McDonald’s before the next shoot I had scheduled that afternoon. It was super sweet of Avery and Logan to let me tag along for lunch! I even heard that after our session Avery asked when I was coming to take her pictures again, so I consider that a compliment! =)
Here are just a few of my favorites from our session:
THIS is Logan’s ‘cheese’ face - hilarious!
Logan is always good for a laugh - he is a happy and funny little guy!
Aren’t they a cute family!?
I love this fun moment between Allison and Avery. Nothing like a good tickle!
Now, this is Logan just being his sweet self - isn’t he a cutie?!
Avery and her Daddy - I think that’s some more tickling in action there.
I do try to get some individual shots of parents when we do family sessions - like I said in my post yesterday - there are plenty of couples who don’t photos taken together since their wedding day! I love this one, with Allison’s hair blowing in the breeze!
I don’t know what Logan was doing here, but it was too funny. Avery was freezing (her hands were SO cold) and there’s Logan showing me his tummy!
I love this one of them together. Both Avery and Logan can be serious and pensive, but seldom at the same time, at least when I am with them….this captures that perfectly….or maybe they just didn’t want to share the red chair? hmmmm….
I’ve got a sweet spot for these twins and I LOVE this snuggle that Logan is sharing with his Daddy - sweet.
And another sweet moment with Mommy…
And I just LOVE this one - Avery looks like a little angel here.
Thank you guys so much for letting me spend the afternoon with you taking photos of your wonderful family! It was delightful, as always and I can’t wait to come do another session. Next time I’ll bring my BIG bucket of goodies for Avery - she’ll be in heaven - and play trains with Logan!
Tonight I am going to a cocktail party celebrating the launch of the new Allison Barnhill Designs name and website (check it out if you are in the market for your wedding paper goods or any other types of invites you might need - her stuff is amazing!), which should be a lot of fun! I am looking forward to taking some photos and enjoying some cocktails while my kids are with their grandma for a few hours - woo hoo!! I’ll be sure to share some photos with your tomorrow or Monday of the festivities!
Thanks for stopping by!
