I’m a big fan of doing a family photoshoot every year, as you might imagine. But really - time flies and it’s so fantastic to have these photos to stop time for just a minute. As I was editing photos this fall, it occurred to me that I see so many of my clients year after year… it’s just such an honor that I’m invited back into their lives on an annual basis. I adore seeing families grow and change… it’s absolutely my favorite thing. Clients who’ve become friends, friends who’ve become clients — just wonderful in every direction.
So I thought I’d take a few minutes today to look back at three of my longtime clients’ photos from back in the day. Because I’ve done photos for these guys every year for 10, 11, 12 years! But back in the day… eeeek! Look how wee!!
Family Photoshoot Every Year
First I’ll take you back to November of 2007 when big brother R had a tiny little blond haired sister C, and boy, did he give sweet smooches.
I love the way Mama and Daddy played with their cuties!
Fun in the leaves and cute poses with their sweet basset hound, Zoe.
And now, fast forward a mere eleven years - of course, now with youngest brother L!
Still sweet mama and daddy hugs happening...
Adorable smiles and the next generation of beloved basset hound pups, introducing Tassie.
And now I’ll hop in my time machine and zip back to December of 2007, when these guys just had three kiddos in their house:
One of the oldest twins, Mr. N:
His twin, Mr. M:
And of course, their bro Mr. T (ha, my system is falling apart when I’m all of a sudden referring to a child as Mr. T. This season is getting to me! Giggling over here...)
Love these boys and their energy so much.
And now, 2018’s shots - Mum and Dad haven’t changed, and they’ve added a couple more twins into the mix since 2007. Look how tall everyone’s gotten!
Incredible smiles, all.
These guys make me laugh so hard, I love it.
And last but not least, for my final family showcase, we’ll zoom back to 2006, when these guys just had one little guy in their house, and boy did he love to swing.
And explore… and chat… I remember this photoshoot so clearly! I love W’s expressions so much.
Inside, outside, just cuteness everywhere.
And now, twelve years later, enjoying the incredible fall leaves and hanging out with his whole family.
I’m just so lucky that I get invited back for family photoshoots every year. I just adore telling the stories of families in every season for every reason--and for no reason other than to freeze time at all.
Only a couple weeks left in 2018. Will *finally* updating family photos be a part of your New Year's Resolutions? Let's talk! I'd love to help you reach your goals. Just fill out this contact form and we'll connect. See you next year!
I'm Jessica McDaniel, and May 2018 marked my 15th anniversary photographing babies and their families all around Boston.
