We just adore this family! It's not only because Shaun fixes my car when its falling apart, or because Taylor is the craftiest mom on the planet....not even because Sawyer is too cute for his own good! It's because they love to have fun, are generous with their gifts and time, and value deep friendships. Our session with the McDaniel family was so much fun. Sawyer kept us all on our toes. He is a climber, runner, and explorer. He has no fear and is ALL boy!
Now, Taylor is a former UofL Ladybird so the girl knows how to smile and pose. I think it's probably what they are used to when it comes to photos. It worked out so perfectly that Sawyer was so active. It made it nearly impossible to pose and smile. This gave them the freedom to relax. When the session was over, Taylor said that the photos would definitely be realistic! That's exactly what happened. Families aren't perfect, calm, and always ready to smile for a camera. (Although this is sometimes what our social media profiles want people to think). Families are messy, dirty, and playful. Real families are beautiful. Taylor and Shaun, thank you for letting your guard down and letting us see a glimpse into your lives as parents of a wild toddler. We happen to think authenticity looks pretty dang good on you!
We would be honored to document your family as well! Make sure you contact us to schedule your session!
