Ever After: Johnwin, Rachelle, Kelsie, and Reese

Jeff and I started out shooting family and child portraits before making the leap to wedding photography four years ago. That was way back when we were newlyweds and weren’t sure if we wanted children of our own. We’ve always liked children, but we also liked being able to return them to their parents at the end of the day. Haha. Our lives got turned upside down in the best possible way when we had Corwin though, and cannot imagine life any other way now. We love our little boy with a fierce passion completely unknown to us until he came along, and it certainly lets us appreciate family sessions in an entirely different way now. Babies are awesome.

A couple of weeks ago, we got to shoot twins for the first time. TWINS! Kelsie and Reese are the cutest. twins. ever. I adore them to itty bitty bits. I think we were laughing all throughout this shoot. “Cute overload” doesn’t quite do it justice.

What Jeff and I try to do with our family sessions is that we try to make it as day-in-the-life as possible. We shoot families in their homes or in parks without it being a major production. It’s about everyday love, the quiet (or crazy) mornings and afternoons that you spend together as a family, and all the little moments in between, both silly and touching. I love real homes in all their rumpled goodness (although Johnwin and Rachelle’s lovely home was anything but rumpled!), and the families who get what we’re trying to do and let us in. This is definitely one of our favorite family sessions to date.

For this last photo, I asked Johnwin and Rachelle to hold Kelsie and Reese up close and facing each other, just to see what they would do. They reached for each other and closed their eyes. And then my heart, it exploded into a million pieces.
