It’s been a couple years since I’ve photographed this loving family.   I can’t get over how much the kids have grown in such a short amount of time.   Pam and Neil live down the street and around the corner from us.  Pam is an wonderful mom and an amazing runner.  Yeah she’s ran the Boston Marathon along with her many other talents.  Her husband Neil is super smart and very kind.  I first met Pam a few years ago when Oliver (her middle) and Evie (my oldest) were in preschool together at St. John’s in Tipp City.  Oliver has always been one of those kids who melts my heart!  I swear he always has a big smile on his face when he sees you!  Plus he gives the best hugs!  His older sister Lucia is sweet, smart and a very determined and talented gymnast!   The baby of the family is Vivian!   She’s the funny, always singing, daredevil of the group!   Vivi and my daughter Josie get along like peas and carrots!  They play SO well together…that Pam and I often trade them back and forth.  They tend to keep each other occupied together vs. getting into trouble while on their own.  Everybody wins!  LOL

I think you’ll fall in love with this family pretty quickly as I have.  You can see their personalities shine through in these photos. mother daughter photo tipp city ohioclassic family portrait in tipp city ohiocandid family dayton ohio photographerNot all mamas and kids can rock a serious photo.  This one of Pam and Vivi???   ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES!!!mommy and me session dayton ohiosiblin giggles tipp city family photographerI LOVE me a good silhouette.  And I love a good family silhouette even more!!!  We had the PERFECT weather for this.  Sadly if it’s very cloudy or overcast….these don’t turn out as well.  Luckily for their session…we had clear blue skies and sunset at a decent hour.  If I tried this in the middle of june most kiddos wouldn’t make it till 9:30pm…so fall is a great time for getting this shot before everyone’s bedtime!family sihouette photography

Meet Jay, Tracey, Alyssa and Austin!   I have known this family for  a few years.  They are good friends of my good friends.  I was SO excited when Tracey contacted me to be their family photographer.   Tracey is super creative and an awesome decorator.   She’s amazing with dyi….especially photography.  Each year she sets up the tripod and timer and takes her own family photos.   From what I’ve seen on facebook…Tracey you always do a great job.   I know there are some of you moms out there reading this and you do the same thing.  It certainly is an option….but it’s exhausting running back and forth.  You have to make sure to get good expressions on everyone along with not looking frazzled yourself.  I know how that feels….I’ve done it myself multiple times.  But some years…mama needs a break.   Tracey I’m SO glad you contacted me.

Ya’ll this family is just as sweet in real life as they are in photos!   This first image with Jay’s big laughing smile….It’s one of my favorites.   Who am I kidding…I like all of these I posted 🙂 Austin…such a cutie pie! Christmas card worthy right here!!!!Alyssa…girl your gorgeous red hair…and those freckles…..LOVE!!!!!Group HUG!!!!We had a fun time venturing around Carriage Hill.   This was the only vibrant fall color we found the second week of October….you betcha we made sure to capture some of it!Alyssa looks so grown up here!  I love everything about this photo!
