It’s no secret that my lovely husband is good with a camera. As a result, we have an abundance of gorgeous photos of our family. However, they all have one thing in common: they don’t include Benjamin. I make a point to turn the camera around on him once in a while, and while I’m not half-bad as a photographer, I’m nowhere near a professional. And then, of course, the pictures are lacking another important member of our family (me!), so they are still not complete.
Enter my talented, professional photographer friend Elizabeth of Elizabeth Horne Photography. She takes amazing pictures.
She came over a couple weeks ago to capture the beginning of our little family of 4.
I can’t even begin to pick my favorites. I love them all.
She captured that twinkle in Owen’s eye, and his nonstop rambunctiousness. I know firsthand how hard it is to catch this kid being STILL for even a second, which makes these images even more impressive.
Emmett’s scowl cracks me up. He makes that face a lot — such expressive brows!
Brothers being brothers.
Me and the boys. It’s still a little surreal to say “the boys”.
A rare, sweet, quiet moment with just Emmett.
Any attempts at a family photo were foiled (enhanced?) by Owen’s hilariousness. I must say, though, I love these even more than a “perfect” one with everyone looking at the camera and smiling at the same time. That’s our family, in a nutshell.
Case in point.
Welcome to the craziness, Emmett.
