I can’t think of a better photo shoot to start 2011 than this lively bunch. Energetic is this family’s middle name! I’ve photographed at this outdoors location many times, but never have I seen kids use the slide and fence so creatively — they were walking on the narrow part, hanging upside down on the bars, and whatever big brother did his sister was not far behind. We even had a leaf-covered duck join us.
It took about 5 minutes to see why these cutie pies are so free-spirited — their parents have such a playfulness with them and arrived with zero expectations that their kids would stay still for photos which fit perfectly with my photojournalistic style of photography. They wanted mostly candid shots which I was more than happy to deliver. Seriously one of the funnest (yes, I know that is not a word but I like it anyways) photo shoots I’ve done with a fabulous family.
