I love getting to photograph families multiple years in a row. Unfortunately for me and those I photograph, we move so often that the likelihood of this happening is pretty minimal. We actually get to stay in Stuttgart for 3 years so I look forward to repeat family sessions.
I’ve known Jill since right before we left Newport to move here to Germany. I was lucky enough to photograph their little one last year at this time when she was just a little peanut. This year she is officially a year old and all over the place during our session! Luckily we had lots of room for her (and her brother) to roam for our session. It was chilly, but we lucked out with some sunshine and blue skies.
I had 2 family members more than willing to reenact the great jumping shot from the year prior. We may or may not have had a bit too much fun getting just the right jump for them both.
And after jumping; a little running is in order as well. There’s nothing I love more than photographing kiddos while they run, jump and have as much fun as possible. Sitting and smiling for me is definitely not their favorite!
I’m already looking forward to next fall and getting to photograph my friends and their growing kids one more time before we all go our separte ways after that. I’ll take 3 years in a row – it’s so much more than I normally get and it’s fantastic!
