Meet the Fassinger family. You’ll fall in love with them… I guarantee it!Β  (…said in a Men’s Wearhouse kinda tone…) πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

This family drove in from Pennsylvania just to get their family photos taken. I was feeling SO much pressure… That’s a SEVEN HOUR DRIVE! Yeah… pressure!!!!

HOWEVER… when you have a family with this much energy…. it’s easy πŸ™‚ Well… easy is relative… family photos are never “easy”… they’re ABSOLUTELY the most exhausting kind of sessions there are! That being said… they’re also the most rewarding πŸ˜‰ Can I get an amen from the photogs in the audience?! AAAAAMEN!!!!!!

Ella was so sweet and cute… oh, and hilarious, too.

Told you she was hilarious. πŸ˜€ Josh, how do you not have a spaz attack with your hair tickling your eyes like that?! That would DRIVE me CRAZY! I know I know… it’s the Justin Bieber look, right? Man oh man I’m getting older!

Mike’s favorite ❓

OHHHHH TO BE A KID AGAIN!!!!! Doesn’t that look fun?! Ella didn’t get the memo on the fun part thought πŸ˜‰

When you’re ten years old and having to get your photo taken with your younger siblings… it’s awkward city for you! So, what do I do?! I make it even more awkward and make your kid brother hug you while you have to force yourself to look like you’re enjoying it. Nice work Josh! πŸ˜‰ His body language to me says, “as soon as they’re not looking, I’m going to punch you…” Which, he did… in a brotherly, not hurt you kind of way.


By the end of our session… these kids were DONE! And I still needed to get ooooone more family photo taken. So, we took a break and gave them our cameras. Probably not my smartest move… but, they were in heaven! πŸ˜€Β  This MAY have been a good idea of Joanna wasn’t a professional photographer… I’m sure that since they’ve been home…. Joanna has had to lay the law down about not touching. SORRY ABOUT THAT! However, truth be told… they were amazingly careful and respectul with them πŸ™‚ After they shot around for a bit… I sat them down andΒ  took a photo. πŸ˜€

HERE was that ooooone last photo that I needed. πŸ˜€ TOTALLY worth it!Β  My favorite ❗
