Oh my goodness, I had so much fun with this crew at the park last weekend! Let me introduce you to these smiley faces... first up, is Martin. He served the role of oldest brother perfectly, always on his best behavior and acting responsibly.
Next is Jude, who was a textbook middle child in the best of possible ways (I'm married to one, so I'm very familiar with their silliness!!).
And sweet Rosemary, the youngest, knows exactly what being two years old is all about.
Lastly, we can't forget their awesome parents, Halley and Jason. I loved how the whole family wore such fun, bright colors - so summery!
Some of my favorite shots from this session were the outtakes, because they are such a great little snapshot of the kiddos' personalities at this particular age, and of the sibling dynamics. These are the types of photos that I always hope will get recreated in 20 years 😂
In-between the chaos, we captured a lot of really sweet moments, too. Patience is so important during family sessions... when it feels crazy and like maybe you aren't getting anything, don't stress. The lovely moments are in there, I promise!
Also, do not underestimate the power of bribery. Eyeball sprinkles on their ice cream was promised for this shot below. Brothers! Hugging!!! SO WORTH IT. #briberyworks
Thanks, Cowden clan, for freeing up some time on National Ice Cream Day to hang out with me and my camera!!
