When Lori initially contacted me, explaining how she & her perfect little family had just moved to Arizona from Florida, I was so incredibly excited! I love hearing stories about how people end up in unplanned area's! Lots of people ask me why I chose to come to Arizona from Minnesota & my first response usually starts with, "Well... considering it's Winter 8 out of the 12 months..." and ends with, "but the heat can be a little unbearable sometimes," haha! You win some, you lose some, you know?
Anyways, Lori & I met up at Starbucks to get to know each other a little better before the session & she brought her angelic kids, Harper Lulu & Crew (Adorable, right?! I die). Right off the bat, Harper was the sweetest thing! Her personality is bold & her imagination stretches beyond the horizon! She is totally a diva in the making & I couldn't be more obsessed! Crew was a little more quiet, mostly because he was pooped from turning 1 & all the partying got to him ;) He is such a flirt & I hate to admit this but, Lori, you're beautiful kids are going to give you grey hair due to their charming good looks!
I cannot WAIT to start shooting this family more & more over the years!
Oh my portrait photography heart is FULL, beautiful Harper!
I originally wasn't sure if I was going to give this image out, but how could you NOT fall completely in love with that smirk!!
Miss Harper just couldn't be bothered for any more paparazzi, I mean who could when there's a giant SAND BOX in the desert!
It was Crew's time to shine, seeing as these were scheduled to celebrate his 1st birthday!!
Once Harper realized we were tickling her baby brother she decided it was time to do big sister duties & get in on the action!
But actually, how cute are these two...
