Its been a while since Ive done any shooting and I also wanted to see my good friends Kristin and Chase. Many of you will recognize them from some of my DVDs. The images from that shoot were done about 2 years ago, and now they have a beautiful boy named Cade. He’s very mobile! It was nice to get out and shoot again. Here are my favorites, especially the last when we went to eat.

It’s hard to go wrong with Paintballer Pro! Such a huge difference, can you guess which 2 dont have it?I think this last image is the one they should hang on their wall. I know Kristin and Chase will disagree, but to me, it’s just so honest. Having a young child is chaotic, messy, uncontrollable. It was hard to get Cade to look into the camera, while Kristin and Chase were perfectly co-operative. We had been trying to get this nice, typical family shot, where everyone (including Cade) is calm, smiling and happy. While 99% of all parents prefer those types of images, to me it isn’t realistic. Parents are busy, stressed out and hungry sometimes. Cade just wanted to do his thing and make a mess. This is reality.

I love it.
