desert garden family photos / the kursars

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??
