I have been looking forward to doing this fun family session since Hilary booked it months ago. These guys are friends of ours through Kyle's brother & we always have a good time when we get together. You may remember their happy faces from their session last year taken in Hilary's parent's back yard. This year, I was lucky enough to come with them to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. What a GORGEOUS campus!! Hilary coordinated her group with a fun patriotic palette & we beat the heat by getting started early. Charlotte was even more entertaining & easy to photograph than last year. Although, I'm not sure she appreciates my candid style. While I'm talking to her from behind the lens & shooting, she says "Can you please stop taking pictures??!" Brody has grown into a wobbling baby boy since the last time I saw him. He is one serious baby who loves Bert & Ernie & has the COOLEST hair on a one-year-old I've ever seen!! Towards the end of the session, I took Hilary & Chip aside to take some photos for just the two of them. They never had the chance to do engagement photos and I believe they don't have many photos from their wedding, so it was a pleasure for me to do this for them.
Thank you to this fun family for a fun time & making my drive SO VERY worth it! Also, thank you to the babysitter, Elyse, who they brought along to help wrangle the kids for Mom & Dad's private session time.
