Awh, I LOVED this Fall Family Mini Session! Especially because it was of my brother-in-law and his cute family. His wife Jamie and I have become close because we were the first in-laws in the family. haha. Geoff and I had our first daughter before Donnie & Jamie started having kids but they also have two girls just like us. McKinley is about a year younger than our youngest but they all get along together SO well! McKinley is always wanting to hang out with her cousins which I think is SO sweet! Donnie & Jamie had another daughter who is now just over a year old and she has been a HARD baby. She is really attached to Donnie & Jamie and doesn’t let them leave her very often. I remember the first time we watched her, she cried and cried almost the whole time we had her! Geoff was the only one that could calm her down which is not very normal for us. haha. Normally, I’m the one that can calm babies down, but Olivia just did not like me for some reason. I would literally look at her and she would start crying! Talk about a hit to the ego!
So, the time for their fall family mini session came and I was SO nervous! I can usually get babies and toddlers to smile at me at least once during their session, but with Olivia I was literally just praying that she wasn’t going to cry the whole time! haha. But she was in a good mood when we got to our location and I actually got a smile out of her which was SHOCKING for me!!! I was SO excited that I got her to smile and felt SO good about the session! This family is so sweet and of course I’m biased, but they are literally some of the most kind people I know. It was so fun to take family photos of my extended family!
