Leap Day 2012 was all for this Beautiful Mom!

It was a beautiful, cool overcast day when I met Rachel, her husband Michael, and their two adorable boys Mitch and Matthew in my secret grassy field location at the end of February, February 29th to be exact: Leap Day! Rachel was smiling from ear to ear and she said to me: “All I wanted was *this* for Mother’s Day!” “This” was referring to a family photography session with all of them as a family together.  She said she had been wanting one for a very long time and was so happy to have this day finally arrive!  I began by telling everyone that I was going to make them JUMP! or leap for Leap Day.  This was a good ice breaker and got the boys and dad laughing! I have to say when Dad is having fun, it’s the best!  I loved all of their stylish outfits and they coordinated so well together!! Even their shoes were awesome!  After I got a few crazy leaping photos we got some gorgeous light over by a tree covered with vines.  I remember acting like a crazy woman trying to get the boys to smile a natural smile.  Sometimes its hard to get them to open up because many times kids are just completely bored with “posing.”  So I started asking the boys several things about what they liked and I immediately learned they were totally into telling jokes.  I told them a few jokes I like to keep up my sleeve and they were cracking up at my ridiculous alligator jokes.  Then they started telling some of their own!!  It got to be a fun way to loosen everyone up and I came away with more kids jokes for another time! The boys also had fun sticking pieces of the wild grass in their mouths! I absolutely love the photos I was able to capture for you Rachel and Michael and family; I hope you enjoy all of your prints and I hope you have a beautiful Mother’s Day!
