Roller Coaster ... of Love | Fairbanks Family Photographer

I think with this session alone, I've received two of the best compliments ever: a) Jacqui & her family were recommended to me by another family of mine, just in casual 'well who's your photographer' conversation (which really I don't think there's a higher compliment out there to feel confident enough to recommend something to someone else) and b) within the first half-hour or so of our session together, Jacqui kindly said that I have definitely found my calling. Not a bad way to start out the day I'd say, huh. ;) And I'm telling you this family was full of fun, laughter, giggles and crazy antics. (Okay, I threw that part in just for mom & dad ;) Sydney & Andrew were full of suggestions - I loved it! Kept me on my toes & gave us a lot of fun shots to boot.) This was their first family portrait in 15 years! That's a tall order ... I hope I served you guys well!

First, Miss Sydney & little brother Andrew. (I know, seriously, how cute are they?!) And that first pose, all their idea. (I know moms across the country right now are thinking, and they're brother & sister?!! I know. You can't fake sibling friendship like that.)

The whole family. (Yep, 9 and 7 year olds do have their quiet moments ;) every once in a while)

I don't think these two could be any happier.

I love Sydney's face here ... and the sideways glance at mom (c'mon, mom, this is fun right!) and little Andrew, in full G-force mode, haha.

Thank you Jacqui & Andrew for the wonderful chance to meet up with your family, take a stroll & enjoy the day ... we have so many good ones, I had a hard time even picking some faves for the sneak peek! I can't wait to show you guys the rest ... hopefully we won't be waiting another 15 years to do this again ;)
