This family was a total riot. I've known Niki since high school and figured that where sense of humor was concerned, the apple wouldn't fall far from the tree. After we loosened Tyler up a bit (by letting him climb a tree), the pictures started to flow.
I love this one. Often times, I tell couples to give each other a smooch but it's not the kiss I'm looking to shoot, it's the moments before or after that turn out to be the real gems.
I have a soft spot in my heart for momma-son moments. This one was my favorite from the session.
This guy has some amazing eyes but he wouldn't make eye contact with the camera for more then 2 seconds. Maybe I should have bribed him with candy. Hmmm.
And this one is another favorite. I'm a sucker for beautiful lighting.
Oh, and I should mention that not long after these were taken, Charlie & Kristen (right upper & lower) got engaged! Congrats to the whole family!
