Every Mom that has ever tried to coordinate a family picture knows it's a little bit like herding mad cats.  And we'll do ANYTHING to pull it off...it's like candy, chocolate, and toys are our dirty little secret ;-)  But when you make it happen...it feels SO good and looks even better!  We had double the fun with one and half year old Belle and Mac (even their names are adorable right?)  Mom Julie styled the twins in THE most delicious outfits...leopard coat, pearls, bow tie OH MY!....but it was my football (above) that Mac found most appetizing...this shot is definitely making my "2014 Studio B Favorites" (Dad had NO idea that his son was feeling a little snacky right in the middle of our photo shoot (heehee)  Family portrait sessions are always a little raucous but I LOVE the energy and never to worry...there is always the "money" shot...you know "The one that makes you look like the family that came in the frame" to fool everyone into thinking it was "easy for you" - but NO worries...every other Mom who has done family pictures knows the truth about how much effort/sweat/tricks/bait & switch went into making it all look simple!
