Modern family pictures

A little bit of madness...FaLaLaLaLa | Issaquah Family Photographer

I mean I totally am) :D  I was so excited to welcome back The Gholston Family because Mom and her boys are AWESOME.  And style side note: how much are you LOVING the brothers little green H&M Blazers?  Favorite of the season I tell you.

Part way through the photo shoot, I was trying to get the boys attention... so I introduced a bribe (as I shamelessly do) Who knew the power of  candy cane -- almost magical. We caught a little behind the scenes footage and shared it here on our Instagram (I'm pretty sure that big brother Braden is channeling the Blue's Brothers with his dance moves).

Vizquel Family Portraits 2011 | Studio B Portraits, Issaquah WA

Nicole Vizquel-Family-Christmas-Picture-at-Studio-B-PortraitsPretty-girl-in-black-formal-dress-at-Studio-B-PortraitsBurberry-inspired-fashion-holiday-family-pictures-of-Vizquel-Family I know that as a professional photographer you would think that I would only share the conventionally perfect portraits, but seriously, every time I look at the family  shot on the top right I crack up laughing.  I've seen it like a 100 times today and honestly it is still slaying me :-)  It's like Christmas came early! Let me set the scene for you.  The beautiful Vizquel Family walks onto the set looking like they stepped out of a magazine and trust me for a photographer that adores fashion as much as I do you'd think that was the gift...but NO...it's what I know is coming.  The kids are a ball! See, I've been photographing this family since youngest daughter Caylee was just a baby and she has always been a character.  As the years have past, it's almost like she's become one part princess, and two parts court jester....she's always fun and unexpectedly really really funny.  With Caylee I just hold on for the ride, but with Nico and Jessie... they are now at the age where we got to do some really fun "editorial" type shots like this Burberry-inspired one on the left...and the real fun lovely shot of them on the right.   If you're loving the full family shot with Mom Nicole at the top and would like to see it larger, we added it to our Facebook page here.

Seriously Funny...this family session cracked me up...scroll down and wait for it!

Candid-family-portrait-in-KirklandTwin-brothers-fighting-during-photo-shoot Want to know when your family portrait session is over?  Well if your the Schmitz Family...your identical twin boys begin pummeling one another in the park.  "That's a Wrap, I yell!" :-) (both were absolutely fine by the way)  I love love love this family and I've photographed them many times -- I have to say, this might have been my most wild ride to date.  The traffic to Kirkland was madness and once we all had arrived, the weather suddenly turned rather...well, rather Seattle on us.  With the light dropping and the rain following it, we set off for some good old outdoor family fun.  I just have to point out...do you see the joy on Mom and Dad's face as their children are in full tackle-mode 2 shots up?...calm as cucumbers...I never see them sweat.
