The Daniels Family! I have to start by giving them HUGE props for this shoot. The night we met, it was at least 1,000 degrees and 2,000 percent humidity, for real. And! Oh my gawd, the gnats and mosquitos were biting! Tod and Erica held it together, with smiles, and their kiddos followed suit. I’m not sure I would have been as graceful if I were in front of the camera, but I’m thankful they were!
Erica did such a fun job of introducing her tribe, I though I’d allow her to introduce them to you too…”Tod, dad and soccer coach extraordinaire. Erica, mom and master schedule organizer. Emma, 8 oldest child and loves to be in charge. Hannah, 6 middle child, shy but loves to be the center of attention. Robbie, 4 youngest child and has an unhealthy obsession for John Deere.” 🙂
Erica just also happens to be my second cousin. I always remember her smile and laugh while we were growing up and adore that she still holds these fun qualities.
Our kiddos are just about the same age, I felt like I was looking at my own little family while photographing them…the dynamic (and amount of silly) is the same as my family.
Biggest sis, Emma…
Erica’s one request this session? Close-ups of her babies beautiful eyes…check.mark.
Robbie just turned 4, he’s so sqeezable!!
Three words that describe this group…complete, content, happy. 🙂
I’m thinking Emma’s practicing her ‘teenager looks’ here… 😀
This family loves being together, camping and being outdoors, and staying in and watching movies together….they really are all kinds of sweet.
Tod and Erica, you two really do bring out the best in each other. I love how you make her laugh, Tod. ♥
Erica, you’re gorgeous. How is it that you never seem to age?
This was the last shot of the night, there was sweat, bugs, hot kiddos…but gorgeous light and a gorgeous family who really stuck it out, sure made for a beautiful image. This is one of my favorite shots, ever. LOVE getting to see you all and am so thrilled for the true happiness that you share. Love you all!
