Funny faces and swinging

So we (this family's mom and I) had started to think this photoshoot might never happen. She'd gotten a gift certificate from another fabulous client of mine (thanks Tara!) a few years ago when she was still pregnant, and hadn't had a chance to use it yet. So unbeknownst to me, she had wanted to do this shoot last fall, but that didn't happen. Then this summer we had her on the calendar for a beach photoshoot, but her munchkins got sick. And then the weekend weather this fall has been just wretched, so we've been moving her around like crazy.

Well, we settled on last Saturday, Halloween. Now these guys were having a party with over 100 guests later that night, and they took down all the spiderwebs and decorations just for the shoot! So nice of them :)

Don't you love the funny faces?


Funny faces #2 (but still so handsome!):


Tossing some leaves on mom and dad:


We grabbed a quick shot of the whole fam:


And the kids zipped around the yard:


Taking a break now and then:


To show me their sweetness:


And then back to zooming around. I love the grin as he swings, just before liftoff (he loved flying into the pile of leaves):


A little squeeze from dad:


It was so great to meet you guys! Thanks for your patience, I'm so glad we got you in there.
