Kreyer Family

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Rachel for years, thanks to being friends with her amazing older sister, Bethany.  She’s always been so loving and fun to be around, I could hardly wait for this session with her and her kids! 

She wanted to do the photo session at her parents’ house, and I was more than happy with that.  I was familiar with the home and excited about all of the natural light I was going to encounter – especially when the weather turned out to be much colder than expected and we decided to do the majority of the photos inside.  As soon as I entered the house, I was greeted by Holly (4) who grabbed my hand and immediately wanted to lead me upstairs to show me around.

After the tour, we settled in and the kids began doing their thing – playing, snacking, and holding the occasional debate as to who was playing with the toy first... 

Now, if you know Holly, you know there was probably no chance of her not trying to get some posed shots in!  “Take a picture of this!”  “How about one of me holding the baby?!”  So adorable, and even though they were requested shots – those moments sure captured her spunky, outgoing personality, and I was more than happy to snap away.  Rachel and I smiled and laughed about how much this young lady reminded us of Bethany.

“Now this one… this one’s me!” Rachel commented about her other daughter, Heidi (2), as we saw her sneak around the corner to go play with her toys.  It wasn’t the first time we’d have to take an extra look around to figure out what Heidi was doing, but her little smirk and love for crackers (she reminded me of Liam so much!) won me over instantly.

And then there was Benjamin (Benny), the 7 month old charmer!  Ladies and gentlemen… lock up your daughters!  Have you SEEN those blue eyes?  Even though he didn’t love me at first (there may have been some tears when I first tried to hold him… and they weren’t mine…) – he warmed up to me by the end. <3 

As we were getting ready to go outside towards the end of our session, Rachel’s husband, Shaun, came home and we were able to get a few pictures of the family together!  While Holly would have rather ended the session on the swings (you may notice a lay-down protest towards the end of the images, lol!), I feel like this wrapped things up perfectly!  And don’t worry Holly – we’ll get some swing photos when there isn’t a layer of ice covering the ground!

Getting to do photo shoots back home with people I know are some of my favorite times.  Thank you so much, Rachel for welcoming me into your lives and allowing me to document your afternoon!  Your ability to juggle staying at home with your kids, working for the family business, and managing to look flawless doing it were impressive to say the least!

Love to  you all,

xo Molly
