i have been photographing this family since price (almost 4) was just a bean in reenie. i then documented price’s first year- and then when reenie was pregnant with parker, then parker’s newborn pics and then last year when parker turned 1. now parker is 2, and price is almost 4 and i couldn’t enjoy this family anymore. they are salt of the earth. they are just real people. i initially was trying and trying to get price to come out of his shell, when reenie said, honestly- i’m happy if you just get him being him and from there it was like this ‘ahhah!’ moment and i just let price do this thing. he came alive throwing rocks and climbing the big log. but his thing is playing with his hands and then he does this cute little thing with his hands up to his mouth. those show who he is right now at this exact moment and i adore reenie for wanting the realness of her kids, rather than a ‘perfect’ picture. and then there is parker. she is her mama. quick to smile- sure of herself. spunky. and i was so glad kadin was here- our last shoot was without him and he was missed. i love the shots of him and price. you can tell they are such good pals and have a really sweet bond. and reenie and kadin together are one of those couples you aspire to be like. sweet and kind to eachother- and funny- and quick to laugh & loving. yes. this family is doing this whole family thing up real nice. thanks brooking family. i always love seeing your faces.

this past year with this family went by so fast. i documented kyler’s first year, then documented when lynne was pregnant with keane- and then keane’s first year. what a love this little boy is. such a sweetheart- such an easy guy to get to smile. he was hamming it up pretty damn good. kyler had lynne and joey running around pretty good and it was muggy- so we were all a bit warm, but we got this family doing what they do, and most importantly we captured keane walking, standing, crawling, loving and smiling. pretty sure all the things he does. thanks partridge family for another great year! xo

she is one of the sweetest babies. and she’s one of the good ones. she smiles, she got changed like 5 times and didn’t fuss. did i mention she smiles? all. the. time. you might remember her from her 3 month, or her 6 months photos. this age though at 9 months is just too cute. her mama told me that she’s crawling, just got her first teeth and says mama. and the buttercups? pretty cute for a bunch of weeds huh?

2 nights ago we finally took the plunge and put the boys in the same room. it has been the plan, but we wanted luke to get a little older and then we wanted sam to be a better sleeper. sam’s been sleeping in my office (3rd bedroom in our house), but i finally told bennett that i really just needed the space all to myself. i no longer wanted to have sam as a roommate! fast forward 2 nights later- it is going awesome. luke is so excited that he gets to share his room with sam. he tells me that he gets up in the middle of the night and checks on sam. so cute! this morning luke climbed on top of sam’s crib after his morning nap and was yelling ‘i’m the new sheriff in this room!’. i think he’s been watching too much Sheriff Callie! But seriously. So cute. Actually, it’s the cutest. Love that they share this little room together. It’s just the sweetest to me.
