THIS is exactly the type of family session that I am living for. You’ll see why once you scroll down ;) But a family that can play and just pretend that some weird lady isn’t in their face with a camera – pinch me. I would like to humble brag and go on about how naturally gifted I am at making people feel comfortable, but it also takes a little bit of chill & the willingness to let loose a little bit. You’ll want those moments in your family session – Just give in and have a little bit of fun ;)

ANYWAY. The Chappell family and I go pretty far back, and it’s one of those funny situations where “we met online and it’s hard to remember who friended who, but we’ve always just REALLY clicked and vibed really well” type things. maybe you have it. As an introvert, I’ve found that social media and the ability to break the ice online has helped me form some really great friendships. Momma Ren is one of those. This session was the first time I *finally* got to meet her and her two boys for the first time, and I surely hope it won’t be the last. MAYBE, just maybe… keep on the look out for some future puppet shots. If you’re a lover of the arts & pure creativity, check out her husband Seth’s business – Foam Foolery! But in the mean time, enjoy this purely joyous family that I love a whole lot!
