The Big Picture

A sneak peek from an extended family session.  I was lucky enough to have a session with 11 lovely people, and more importantly their AMAZING kids who were so polite and sweet I wanted to take them all home.  Oh, and did I mention that each one was cuter than the next?  When I do a extended family like this it’s basically like two mini sessions – so not as many outfit changes, etc.  Somehow I end up taking a ton of pictures anyway, especially when clients are so nice!

This is A LOT to see for a preview, but there are too many families involved not to show one of each kiddo…

Family number one!  Cute little one and a half year old that is a BIG fan of wheels on the bus.  Thank goodness it’s my specialty!  :)


This amazing 16 year old was so smart and so amazing.  We totally hit it off.  I noticed on the info sheet that she had the same birthday as my brother – I love Taurus girls!!

fischernewFamily number TWO!

So much personality and confidence in this little one.  I love her attitude.


This one reminded me of me when I was her age.  A little shy, but knows exactly what’s up…  Those EYES are killer too!


Do I need to say anything about this guy?  Hearts will be breaking in about 3 years…  Poor mom!  So polite, even though he didn’t really want to get his picture taken.  What 13 year old boy does?  I love how he is looking down a little mischievously –  totally fits the age.


And I HAD to add this, because I adore it.  Hope you didn’t mind!


I had a great time with you guys!  Gallery to follow soon!

    I saw these earlier and popped back by to say how much i love them! What a beautiful family. Your color is always amazing Cristina, but these black and whites just took my breath away. The last one of the couple is perfection and you are so right about 13 year old boys – mom has to LOVE that one! Gorgeous kids, beautiful images!
