Sweet Isla Pattison is 6 months old, and she smiles with her whole face, just like her mom and dad do!  What a love filled family of three they are…

One of the things I love best about these four is how much they laugh!  I can’t think of a better environment to grow up in than a laid back, loving, and laughter filled home like theirs.  Here are some favorites!

I have been wanting to photograph my friends, the Calloways for awhile.  This year I decided that I would just force myself upon them and tell my friend Erin that I wanted to take her family’s pictures for her birthday present.  I was glad that they said “yes!”.  The Calloways are known among friends for the no-smile family photo.  Their kids are genuinely trained to do the opposite thing that every other kid is asked to do in front of the camera.  When I raised my camera, instead of a fake cheesy grin, they all went straight faced.  We did some family portraits in the way of that Calloway tradition, and then I also took a few more one afternoon just hanging out with Erin and her boys.  You are loved Calloway family!  It was such a gift to me to get to spend this time with you all.
