Sarah and I have known each other and been close friends since Kindergarden so when she broached the idea of gifting her Mom with a family shoot for her birthday I jumped at the chance 🙂 To really get the full experience I had a sleepover (just like old times!) the night before and Sarah and I stayed up late into the night giggling and telling stories – so much fun.
Sam slept over the night before too as his parent’s were at a wedding so while we waited for everyone else to arrive I focused on him.
He took a little while to warm up but soon with my silly silly antics I had him giggling 🙂
Love this one with Wilbur in the background
Grandma’s truck bed made him a captive audience to my threats of tickles 🙂
His parents arrived first and he was thrilled to see them 🙂
He loves doorbells. They’ve disconnected the bell at his house but he still has fun when he visit Grandma & Grandpa!!
Soon the girls arrived – Ms. Sophie is the youngest and amazingly crawled for the first time during out shoot!!
The big group 🙂 Always a challenge to get everyone smiling and looking at the same time – more silly tactics were used!
Love Sam & Emma snuggling in the middle of everything else 🙂
Wilbur has to join too!
Sarah with her niece Emma – they have such a close relationship and Sarah is always sending us funny emails detailing the hilarious things that Emma says 🙂
The other side of the family 🙂
A few individuals of Ms. Emma who has SUCH a big personality and is so mature for her age
A little break for some pizza was in order
And then a few more to end the day 🙂
Sophie has a great belly laugh when you squeeze her thighs….it’s pretty adorable 🙂 And those cheeks!!
Ice cream finished the day!
A quick snap of old friends 🙂
And a fun goodbye to Ms. Emma before everyone went their separate ways!
