If you have followed the blog for any extended period of time, chances are you have seen that this family and specifically these kids grow up in pictures taken by me. I am only partially disappointed that this years session didn’t involve Bald Head Island as it has for the last 3 years (and even once I got to see them both at Bald Head and their house). BUT I will take seeing this adorable family any way I can!
In typical Elodie and Aiden sassiness – I got both super unhappy faces, uber excited ones and in general kinda in between. I bet you can tell the ones in which some type of sugar was used as a bribe (because I am not below bribing at all y’all to get kids to give me some good smiles) and the ones that the kids were just in general tired of sitting next to each other or just tired of me yelling their names – but all and all – my favorites always end up being the ones that the kids are just doing their own thing which sometimes means they make me work for it a little more; but I am completely ok with that!
I am also so sad to hear that one of the family dogs passed away since the last time I saw them 🙁 Gus was an adorable lug of fur and Jeffery was his partner in crime. Well Jeffery was adorable at this session and some of my favorites were actually when Elodie was playing with him!
I hope you enjoy this backyard (yes, y’all – this is THEIR backyard – Dan and Grace do amazing work in both kids and gardening) Wilson, NC family photography session!
