the collins family!

I know Thanksgiving was yesterday, but I have yet another thing to be thankful for. I got to spend a little time with one of my favorite families. This is now the fourth time I've taken photos of the wonderful Collins family. They are such kind people, and their sweet girls get more adorable every time I see them.

There's such a comfort when photographing people I click with, especially when we've worked together before. The nerves disappear and I know the smiles will just happen and translate effortlessly into images.

As usual, the whole family was playful, patient, and natural. It was such a pleasant reminder of why I love what I do. I hope they enjoy their photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

The girls are growing up so fast!

Keira was cracking me up. In the middle pic below, she was carefully explaining to me that parts of the play area were "absolutely dangerous" (at least for adults).

Kirsty recently started walking, and was a bit shy until they started playing with the leaves. Then she was all giggles!

Keira makes the BEST faces!

So many thanks to the beautiful Collins family!

gorgeous. Do you just tell plain looking folk you can't take their pictures? you have the most attractive clients.
