Birthday Shenanigans

Last year, I had the chance to meet Brandi and her family after she bid on my services at a school auction. We had a great shoot. Her kids are super adorable, and I was lucky enough to catch some amazing moments of brotherly/sisterly love on camera. That's why I was so excited when she called me up again this year to do another shoot! This one involved many more kiddos (and grown-ups), as it took place during a big family birthday party. As you might imagine, this was a little hectic. But I think it went really well! Getting all the little ones to hold still for group shots was pretty tough with all the excitement. But I got a lot of candid action shots, which just happen to be my favorite.

Oh! And I almost forgot to mention that Brandi was (is?) expecting her third little one during this shoot! So we got in a few maternity photos as well.
