I really love doing these photo shoots for the kids every season. I do. I mean, I think I do.
I love HAVING these photos of my children. I love being able to frame them and gift them to grandparents and share them with the world and have snapshots of what they looked like, especially while they’re young and the difference in Spring to Summer might be a few inches! But do I love shooting these sessions? Wellllllll… it depends on the day.
Our kids, these gorgeous McG Littles, they’re alot of fun right now. Jack is so imaginative and funny, and Dorothy is in a really sweet phase, and way too smart for her own good. But what they MOSTLY are, is insane. They’re crazy people. They’re shrieking banshees and wild Indians running around my house, and I couldn’t for the life of me come up with a feasible shoot idea for this spring that would work with their attention span.
So Mack, ever the wise one in this family, said, “Then, just photograph the wild Indians & shrieking banshees.”
“We need the tonic of wildness…
At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and un-explorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, un-surveyed and unfathomed by us… We can never have enough of nature.”
Henry David Thoreau
Love these! They are so sweet together and so beautiful! Dot looked so grown up in those close-ups!
These are great y’all! Dorothy is gorgeous (you can tell how sweet she is in all of these), and Jack is so handsome! He loves his little sister to the moon and back! Love this shoot! So cute!
I CANNOT even express how much I live these! Amazing! Favorites are 7 from top and 7 from bottom! Beautiful!
These are so balling
Oh my goodness. The picture of the two of them just sitting, both smiling is so precious. I love how Jack is looking at Dot. Brotherly love. That makes my heart happy.
These are too cute!
I can’t express how sweet it is to see how much he loves her. I hope our future children are this sweet to eachother!
Love Love this!! These are the types of photo shoots that are truly fun and show the personalities. Hope to be able to shoot a ‘themed’ shoot like this soon!
Not even fair how amazing these are. SO IN LOVE! And those close up face shots…. I mean… COME ON!
Stop growing up, y’all! Seriously. Way to go in capturing them in their element. 😉 We all love these, so don’t stop taking them. Thanks. Also – the shot of Dorothy, #10 – heart melted.
