Veronica + Marc + Baelie + Ethan's Sneak Peek

Back at the tail end of winter I held a contest, and Veronica was the winner. We've been trying for the past month and a half to make her photo session a reality, but we kept getting rained out. I lost count of how many times we had to reschedule due to inclement weather, but this session certainly holds the record!

We finally managed to sneak her session in between the rain clouds early Sunday morning. Veronica told me that she was a big fan of nature backgrounds and that was what she wanted for her photo session.  She let me talk her into shooting on the IPFW campus, and I was so thrilled that she did! That place is full of awesome places to shoot photos, and on a Sunday morning we had the entire campus to ourselves.  We got some fun shots, and I didn't even scratch the surface of all the wonderful places to shoot!

We started out doing a handful of photos of the entire family and then some of the boys by themselves.  This little cutie is Ethan.  He did so well at posing for his photos.  I told him maybe he'd have a future as a model some day, but he didn't seem too interested.  Instead he was quick to tell me all about how much he loves math.  A kid who loves math!  Now there's a kid after my own heart, indeed!...


Next up was Baelie, who also told me that he is a fan of math just like his brother.  Baelie didn't want to give us a good natural smile during parts of the photo session, so we kept having to threaten to do all sorts of silly things to make him laugh!...


You can't have a photo session involving two boys without some silliness involved, now can you?...


I told the boys to turn around and look at mom and dad kissing, and I didn't even get an "Ewww. Gross!!" out of them. They must have been on their best behavior for the photo session! :) ...


Meet Marc and Veronica, the proud parents...


Isn't that just the sweetest photo of the two of them? Usually my favorite photo from each session is one that most people would consider "artsy" or "creative" but not this time. The second I saw this sweet photo of this couple, it went soaring to the top of my fav list for the session.

This is another photo from the session that I really like! By this point, everyone was getting a little tired and worn out from posing for so long but the boys did so great.  They really hung in there and we got a few really good photos even as we were nearing the end...


Marc had to head off to work, so Veronica and the boys and I headed across campus to take a few fun photos at the top of one of the parking garages...


OK. OK. Here is my artsy-fartsy fav from the session...


(There had to be at least one, right?)

Thank you for letting me take your family's photos, Veronica. It was a pleasure FINALLY meeting you in person and spending my Sunday morning with your family. I hope you enjoy your pictures!
