Troy + Lisa + Teagan's Sneak Peek

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing my BFF's family. I was planning on making a trip to Michigan for two other photo sessions, and wanted to squeeze in a visit with Lisa while I was in town. I offered to take some family photos for them while I was there, and she accepted. So, yesterday morning we had our photo session at their house.

Lisa and Troy have one daughter named Teagan, who will be 2 years old in mid-July.  Teagan is a cutie!  She looks just like her mom did when she was little.  Lisa and I have been friends since we were in girl scouts together in elementary school, so I didn't know her when she was as young as Teagan is now, but I've seen lots of photos of her as a child!

I got started with the session by taking some photos of Teagan in her bedroom while mom and dad finished getting ready.  I had spent the night at their house the night before, so Teagan was pretty comfortable with me, but as soon as the camera came out, she got a little shy...


I had to work at it, but I finally got her to start smiling for me...


Then she decided to read me a story...


CHECK OUT THOSE EYELASHES! Wow, is all I can say!...


Then Lisa came in and joined us for story time. (If you check out Lisa's long, gorgeous eyelashes, it isn't any surprise where Teagan's came from!)...


Love this one of Teagan laughing as Lisa acts out the story for her...


Looks at those adorable little cheeks! Don't you just want to kiss 'em?...


Teagan was having fun playing with the scrabble letters and blocks I brought to spell out her name with, and she even left her name tower in place just long enough for me to snap a photo before she knocked it off the table...


Our weather hasn't been the greatest this spring, and it has been really rainy! Luckily, it let up long enough to allow us to get outside and take some photos. Lisa and Troy's house is in a gorgeous natural setting down a dirt road. Just perfect for a photo session. If only the grass hadn't been soaking wet, and the street full of mud puddles!

Here is Teagan with her daddy, Troy...


The family, taking a little stroll on the driveway...


Could she get any more adorable?...


One more of just Teagan, checking out the daffodils in the landscaping...


And how about a family photo with everyone? (Chase and Copper should look familiar from yesterday's post.)


Thanks, Lisa and Troy, for letting me come visit and capture your precious family! As always, it was great to catch up and spend time with you. I can't believe how much Teagan has grown since the last time I saw her!
