here's the thing. everyone thinks their kids are horrible when it comes to taking family pictures. they rarely listen, they do their own thing, they get dirty. but that is 100% ok. it actually makes for better pictures in my opinion. this little girl was definitely spirited and independent and was worn out from a week of traveling in a different time zone. but she was so gorgeous i couldn't get enough of her. her long hair and that pink dress! to die for! while her parents may have felt like our session was a little wild, i am so happy with how it turned out because i got to photograph their family in the midst of chaos doing real things, rather than just looking at the camera and smiling. besides, no one has a picture perfect life so why pretend??
