Jess & Tim + 4 Lifestyle family session in Tonawanda, New York.

So I kind of love doing lifestyle portrait sessions. Especially when you have a larger family to photograph! It's stress free, and there are no boundaries as to what can happen. There is no stress to  "look at the camera" and say "cheese". Yuck! That is so old school, we are in the 2000's! There are so many other options for creating lasting memories. When I photograph sessions like this one it really reminds me how important family is and how awesome it is to document these moments. 

Jess & Tim moved in to their new house a couple of years ago on my Grandma's block. They are a super fun family to hang out with and I enjoy every moment I get to spend with them. Their family is adorable and I love all of their kids just like they were my own. It has really been such a pleasure to watch the children grow and to have good friends like them. 

I was offered, snacks, puzzles, hugs, dolls and stories all while photographing. I watched as a very determined little lady figured out a way to get something she wanted. I learned that there is no better bond than family. I left wanting more children. Life is beautiful and I cherish every moment I have, everyday. Thanks guys for an awesome morning!
