Somehow I got lucky enough to photograph two of the most talented photographers I know. Jean and Travis Smith and their boys are truly awesome. If you know Jean and Travis, you know that they are not only talented, but really down to earth and FUN. Last year, Jean photographed me and my family. We decided to swap sessions, but her kiddos were sick last year while we were visiting MI, so, we rescheduled for this year. Before we scheduled, Jean had a definite vision in mind. She wanted hills, grass, and beach with warm lighting. But most of all, she wanted her family together, loving and having fun. I hope I delivered.
Jean and Travis, I hope you enjoy these images half as much as I do. I genuinely enjoyed photographing your beautiful family and I smile every time I look at these images!
Jean and Travis have FOUR boys. And each and everyone of them is C U T E.
This is their baby. And his monkey. I just want to SQUEEZE his little cheeks!
He really loves his monkey, but I think he loves his Daddy more.
Of course he loves his Mommy, too.
But this little guy is a Mama’s boy. If you have a son, you know what I mean. There’s nothing better!
Jean is lucky enough to have cuddles from four boys. Sigh.
And from her husband, too. How lucky is she? Aren’t they gorgeous? I told Jean when I sent her the proofs that it’s not fair how pretty she is…
Of course Travis is handsome, which explains the cuteness of their kids.
I absolutely adore this image…
Sometimes life can be hectic with four boys…
But Jean and Travis handle it gracefully. I was amazed at just how calm and easy going they both were! I need some lessons in patience I guess.
See how much fun we had?
I’m not sure where her boys get it from…
Certainly not their Mom…naaaahhh.
Disclaimer: no babies were injured during this shoot.
This is one of my all time favorite shots. Ever.
Jean and Travis, thank you for sharing your lovely family with me! You guys are the best.
