I've been photographing the Staats family for about a year now, and it's always fun to see the kids grow and change between each session. For our first session, little Madyson was just a baby, and now she's 1 year old - walking, talking, and ready to eat birthday cake! Their beautiful property in Black Forest is the perfect location for a photo session. We began the session letting the girls warm up to me, and they were a delight to work with - lots of smiles! Their dog ran around us, a goat got out, and Emma got to hold a baby chick for a few of her photos (she LOVES them!). We fit in some family photos, kids with Mom and Dad, then moved on to cake for the birthday girl. Big sister Emma joined in also and got some cake. While they were eating cake I was able to take a few photos of just Jennifer & David... I have to tell you, couples photos are probably my favorite photos to take - it's so important to have updated photos of just Mom & Dad. The very last photo sums up how the kids felt after cake - the birthday girl looked cake-drunk and her sister wasn't sure what to do with her cake covered hands! Haha!
Thank you Jennifer and David for choosing me to photograph your family!
