The Gyllenborg sisters and their five collective kids got together last month before one of them made a temporary move overseas. We started off trying to make a traditional posed picture of the 5 cousins, but as soon as we stopped trying to set them up nice and neat, and I got close with my 35mm and we joked around, then the pictures started getting really adorable.
It’s so fun to see spirited little individuals grow out of an awesome family base.
If you’re only going to have professional photos taken one time in your baby’s first year, 6- 8 months is the sweet spot. When babies are starting to give us those huge funny expressions and yet, they’re not yet mobile! I have known and loved the Scobies since I photographed their wedding, and now I have seen them bring home two babies, to two different houses. This is one of the very best parts about my job, getting to know a family and be with them as they grow and change. Here are a few of sweet Annabelle and family.
