If there were an award for most times in front of my lens, I’m fairly certain this family would win it. I’m so thankful for this family and the memories I’ve gotten to record for them over the years! From expecting, to becoming a family of three, to expecting number two and now a beautiful family of four.
Aside from being friends with these lovely people and being comfortable around each other, what I think works so well with the Nowlins and me is that they’re open-minded. Vanessa always comes with a few ideas for us to try, but she knows that toddlers will be toddlers and she and Brennan are just ready to go with the flow - that helps us to get natural interactions, sweet smiles and genuine laughs.
This fall family session was a little hilarious because we had a visitor that would not leave us alone - a stray cat! He was weaving in and out of our feet, wanting to basically hog the camera, be in all of our pictures and eat all of our snacks. Cat craziness aside, it was a perfect afternoon spending golden hour with Vanessa, Brennan and their boys. She is adored by all three of them!
