Waller Family - Summer 2015

Summer mornings are always so great to shoot! You know, assuming it isn't 90 degrees and you've got a little bit of cloud cover. Luckily for my most recent session with the Waller family, the weather was absolutely perfect...

Sometimes you've gotta get creative (and goofy) to get smiles out of little ones - Aly and Alex are pros!

And the reward for having such a great shoot? Getting to splash in the creek! 

I can't believe this was our FOURTH shoot together, time really flies! It's such a pleasure getting to document families as they grow - if you wanna get nostalgic with me, here is Noah's first birthday from 2013, and the baby bump shoot + Liam's newborn session from early 2014. S'cuse me while I enjoy my warm fuzzies! -MJ

oh, p.s. - a few captures from the amazing storm last night to leave you with...
