family of five enjoying love, laughter & fun in the sun – dallas family photographer

How can I not show off this beautiful family session with this ever so massive blog post!?  OK get ready – this one is a doozie (and believe it or not – there is so much more!).

Meet Nicki and her wonderful family!  I met Nicki last summer when I was able to attend a JINKY WORKSHOP in Round Top.  We met, became roommates for the wknd and hit it off immediately!  She’s an amazing photographer in her own right but as everyone can imagine – she’s hardly in any of the photos with her family.  So that’s where I came in!

We met on a surprisingly pretty day where it started overcast, then went full sun and then dropped to the most gorgeous sunset.  The variety of light and expressions were some of my favorite things during this shoot.  There was ALOT of playing, laughing, running and lady bug inspecting.  And SERIOUSLY – her kids are just so adorable!  I wanted to scoop them all up and make them my own.  So well behaved, so funny and had the sweetest little expressions on their faces.  It’s not often I get to photograph a family of this size and I gotta say – I LOVED IT! Without further delay – let me introduce you the Behm Family…

Brendan (7 but 8 in just 9 days) – he is a total helper and was full of great suggestions during the shoot.  He’s an all around sports guy, loves making others laugh and he’s so sweet and thoughtful.

Evie (just turned 4) – She had the sweetest little spirit about her and boy does she love her brother & sister (and mom & dad too of course).  She wants to do anything Brendan does and is into sports, gardening and cooking.

Audrey (just turned 2) – This is Nicki’s Girly Girl.  From dress up to dancing to cooking with Evie – she loves it all.  What cracked me up is that her favorite song is Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix!  What a personality this one!

Nicki & Tom – well they are just 2 of the cutest parents I’ve ever seen.  And man do those kiddos love them.  I hope I was able to capture all of that love in these images because it certainly is evident.

OK – enough chit chat – let me show them off…
