Family Session & Giveaway Number Five Winner

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing the following family.
They were so sweet and friendly and really made my job easy!

Are they not just the cutest family ever?! 

There's something about shots of a Daddy snuggling and loving on his kids that absolutely melts my heart. 

Just look at that little face!
He was such a trooper through the entire hour-long session. 
Kudos to Mom and Dad for raising such a well mannered son!

In the above shot, I asked them to lay on their tummies {yep, that's how I said it. can you tell I'm a mom?!} and this is how they posed themselves. I try hard to not pose people any more than what's necessary because this way their true personalities are able to shine through in full force!

His smile is so infectious! 

I'm personally a big fan of shots like this. 
It shows a family in a {somewhat} natural state...not posing for the camera or forcing a smile, but rather an embodiment of togetherness.

Give me your best shot at Better in Bulk PhotoStory Friday


And now to announce the winner of giveaway number five: a 2012 desk calender from moi!
