Even though I decided to cut back on taking on new families for photo sessions earlier this year, I just can’t resist seeing my past baby plan clients for updated family photos. I just love seeing my families again after their kids have grown up a little bit and their sweet little faces start losing that baby chub.
The last time I saw this family was when their littlest one was just one year old. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever see my clients again after that one year photo shoot, so it’s always a nice surprise when I receive an e-mail or a phone call asking for updated family photos. This is one family I just adored working with during their first year baby plan, so I was super excited about seeing them again.
We met up at the Maple Grove Arboretum on a warm and windy fall day. We managed to capture their photos at just the right time during the peak of the fall leaf colors. We had such a great time catching up and the boys were as sweet as ever. You can really tell that these two are best friends through and through. They had no problems wrapping their arms around each other for great big hugs when asked and couldn’t resist giggling and laughing at each other during the session.
