Some families just make you feel at ease all the time. Their humor, openness, and love for each other somehow extend out to envelop you in a big hug of happiness. That’s exactly how I feel every time I’m around these guys. I love it when I get to photograph familiar faces and this session was really special to me because they were some of my first clients right after starting The Good Life. It had been almost a year since our first session, and throughout our entire time together, I kept getting struck by how much the girls had grown up. Spunky little Iyla, seems to take her job as big sister very seriously, and it was clear to me that sweet Genevieve loves and admires her to no end. I can’t wait to see these two as they grow up and find all the wonderful camaraderie and rivalry that being sisters entails. I’m sure Mar and Steve will have their hands full with these gorgeous little ladies, but that their humor and easy-going attitude will help keep them sane in the busy years to come. I love how spirited this family is and how they always seem to be up for any adventure without hesitation. I was sure that Iyla’s fearless nature and Genevieve’s inquisitive spirit came directly from their parents as we watched Steve spontaneously demonstrate to his girls how to climb a tree with ease. Thank you for allowing me to capture all the laughter and joy in your lives. As always, I had an amazing time with you guys and can’t wait to do it again next year!
