‘Tis the season for family sessions, and these guys snuck in before the crowds. My friend Abbey concocted the idea of a mini session with just herself and her niece, Ava (see the first handful of photos below), followed by a larger, full-family session before their weekly family dinner, a sweet and impressive tradition in this age of eating quick-cook meals in front of the television. Ava was a champ, and her cheerleaders were a big help (my new favorite thing is the things people will do to make babies smile - see a couple of examples scattered below - you’ll see more of these in upcoming shoots as well). I especially enjoyed watching her grandparents love on her. Thanks for a fun session, Stang fam!
