I love when one of my senior model parents approaches me about doing their family photos. One I love getting to see those beautiful seniors again and two it almost always means a little older family. It is a beautiful thing to shoot a family photo without chasing around a one or two year old. Often I think though as a society that when the kids are little that is when we do the family photos. Don’t get me wrong, I think those are important too, especially since that is the stage I’m more in. But there is something to be said about the family photos when the kids are a little older too. As the Mom in this family photo said, “They’re done hating each other. Now they are each others biggest defenders”. I love that! These three are definitely close and very protective of one another. And, that to me is a beautiful thing that needs to be captured before they take off on their own life adventures… one more photo before they are off on their own… one more photo when it is just the three of them against the world.
