Tag Archives: candid family photography

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

Ever meet someone and realize very quickly they were meant to be doing the job they do?  That is Mrs. Anderson!  She’s a teacher.  And, one of THE best!

Offering Tipp City Ohio family photography provides the opportunity to meet tons of new families, but this one I met through my daughter! Mrs. Anderson was my daughter Evie’s first grade teacher last year at Nevin in Tipp.

A new school year is always a little exciting and can be stressful, too.  Evie is naturally shy and I sometimes worry about her feeling comfortable at school.  Luckily, I heard so many good things about Mrs. Anderson and after meeting her I knew Evie would be comfortable.  Evie thrived this past year and ADORED you, Angie!  You are one of the best teachers out there and any student is lucky to have you.   Thank you for doing what you do SO well!

I had a blast getting to know The Andersons!  You’ll love all these smiles too. They are such a sweet and loving family!

I have to add a funny story here.  We jumped right into photographing and about 3 shots in I realized that Angie was chewing gum! I called her out and thought it was hilarious because….well, I caught a TEACHER chewing GUM!  Okay… we weren’t in class or anything… but you can’t chew gum while having family moments captured.  We all had a good chuckle about it!  🙂
