andy & co.

24 eyes, 12 noses and 12 smiles here and there recently faced my lens. As well as the blustery winds and not so balmy temps at Prairie Creek Park. Andy and her extended family met me for a larger family portrait session. Her identical twin (and super adorable), bilingual daughters loved to snuggle with mama and explore with daddy. When Andy's parents arrived for part of the session, Andy's mom brought a bag of books, puppets, and snacks . . . I'm working up a contract now for the preschool teacher to come with me to all of my shoots! And then Andy's brother arrived with his lovely wife and FOUR little boys! One of the handsome tots is about to turn three, so we had to take a portrait of him and his long locks, before the family celebrates his upsherin (for those playing at home: "I'll take What are Jewish Customs for $800, Alex" This tradition marks the beginning of a boy's formal education, as well as his obligation to keep the commandments and perform good deeds-otherwise known as a mitzvot in Hebrew). The grown-ups were patient, the kids were cuties, and the session was done in less than an hour. Not sure how you say efficient in Hebrew, but this fun loving family certainly defined it! Thanks, Andy, for organizing the whole thing. Enjoy your sneaky!
