Little Miss Love is three! She’s not such a toddler any more, but a wicked smart preschooler who proves that little girls in pink princess hats can be really excited about robots. My husband has known the birthday girl’s mom, Kirsten, for years and years; she was his first friend when he moved to Colorado. They live out of state now, so it’s nice to get to see them whenever we can.
Kirsten’s brother and his family were also in town from Texas. It’s rare for everyone to be in the same place at the same time, so she wanted to document their time together. Extended family photos are a lot of fun. I think it’s especially important to get photos of cousins together; it’s such an important relationship. Birthday party photos allow us to get a few portraits of the photo-averse, but mainly focus on documenting those relationships and real-life interactions. Plus, how gregarious and silly are those cousins? I think I have more photos of kids sticking their tongue out at me that day than any other shoot ever!
