I have the privilege of photographing this sweet family every year. Often times it's because there's a new addition to the family! With five kids now, Bill and Amanda make parenting look so seamless! I always tell Amanda they need to write a book or start a family blog!
I just love this family... Spending time with these kids brings such joy to my heart. They've known me since they were born and watching them grow and become the precious little people they are has been such a sweet blessing!
When I got there and was setting up for brand new baby Bianca's photos with Amanda, Wesley woke up from his nap and came in to give me a hug. He was excited to take pictures and was hoping we'd be able to go outside at some point! I love when the kids have little ideas for shots... He and I then had a little snack break while Bianca was having her own snack time before her big photo debut...
I seriously can't believe how big he's gotten... He is so sweet and such a thinker! He's so smart for his age and it blows my mind every time. When he was getting dressed for pictures with a nice button-down shirt, he asked me to help him button the wrist buttons so he could look "more handsome", hehe.
Wes wanted to make sure he was able to wear his favorite pair of socks that his Aunt Jessica got him with the scales up the back... SO cute!
Rosie came in from her nap while we were starting to take a few pictures of little miss B. She's such a cutie pie too with so much energy and spunk!
Before their older sisters Dakota and Avery got home from school, we snuggled Bianca up all cozy and warm for her little nap...
When the girls got home, it was time for the whole family to pile up in their favorite spot - mommy and daddy's bed to snuggle before a tickle party!
Each year, I love to tell the kids to end the session by picking out their favorite outfit and posing in whatever feels most like THEM. I just love seeing how they express themselves!
Siiigh, they are just so cute! I always love visiting with them and catching up with Amanda and Bill after we take pictures. We're so blessed to have them as friends!
