Meet the Fassinger family. You’ll fall in love with them… I guarantee it! (…said in a Men’s Wearhouse kinda tone…) 😀 😀 😀
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 🙂 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 😉 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. 😀 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 😉
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! 😉 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.
HELLOOOOOO HOT TAMALES!!!!!
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! 😀 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 🙂 After they shot around for a bit… I sat them down and took a photo. 😀
HERE was that ooooone last photo that I needed. 😀 TOTALLY worth it! My favorite ❗

Hard work or not, you guys make family sessions look effortless. And look at you in that bottom row, middle shot that the kids took! Skinny minnie!
Who rules? YOU DO! I love these! SOOOOO good. I’m all charlie brown melty smiles now…Such a cute family! Great job Bobbi and Mike.
I think the 4th one is my favorite! I love the b&w shot of the kids running through the field. Kids in their element/natural state = awesome. Great job!!!!
seriously- i’m in ((LOVE)) with all of your fotowork?! who knows- i may srsly ask you to do my fotos sooner than later. lovelovelove!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE, totally worth the drive, would do it all over again in a heartbeat! *Best photographers ever!* We love you guys! =)
oh so cute!!! And AMEN to the workout that family photos are—seriously so much fun to do though! 😀
beautiful as usual.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!! It needed to be said thrice:)
You worked it OUT!! And I TOTALLY agree. Family sessions are EXHAUSTING. Far more exhausting than weddings. Kids don’t like to listen the way wedidng parties (for the most part -haha) do!
I know they’ll LOVE these!!
You guys continue to amaze me every time!! These are such fun family photos… someday when we have kids you’ll be the first I call! Big hugs to two of our favorite photogs!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Ok, seriously. WHY don’t you two have kids!? You would make amazing parents! I’m just happy there’s another woman in this world that thinks their man playing with kids…anyones kids…is the biggest turn on =) TMI ? NAHH…just the truth!
B+M=Amazing! Love your work!
AMEN and AMEN! family sessions are so exhausting, and SO stinkin worth it :0) these are so gorgeous! your favorite is my favorite too :0) LOVE!
I love these!! This has got to be the family with the most energy. How fantastic! The kids with the camera shots…awesome! When are you coming to Sonoma County, California?!
Brilliant images! Such fun!
What a small world….Joanne just did a wedding last weekend that we attended… beautiful pictures … I have always admired your work….
AMEN!!! I love my family sessions, right after my baby sessions, but I am toast after I do one, especially with little kids!! I love all of these, but that first one would be going on my wall in a heart beat if it were me!!!! I am thinking a trip to Indy may be in my family’s future. Really. Unless I can convince you to vacation in Maine:)
AMEN! Aaaaand…….AWESOME!! What a sweet family!! They’re all gorgeous!! Great job again, you two 🙂
Oh my freakin’ cow. I LOVE THESE!!! Seriously, Bobbi, this may be your best family session EEEVVVER. No joke.
And yes, you get an “amen” from this part of the photog community. Family portraits are EX-hausting, but sooooo beautiful.
How precious! I am a big fan of the touchy-feely, huggy, happy family. The camera-toting kids pic is classic!
This has to be your BEST family session yet! Great job, guys!
these rule, once again.
and bobbi, i feel your pain on the invisalign buttons. annoying but WORTH it!
Woohoo! PA people! 🙂 Loved every shot.. Especially the one of the whole family on the stairs…
Again..amazing!!! And again I am left wanting to fly you out here to take our family photos..one day…one day. Bobbi and Mike are officially on my bucket list 😉
bravo B+M! what a fun fun fun session! seriously, I’M in love with that family. can they please come to canberra so i can shoot them next? HAHAH!!!! 🙂 ps miss bobbi, you are lookin’ fiiiiiiine!!! xoxo
wow. the happiness and fun just OOOOOOOOOOOOOZE out of these images. they are so, so, so great!
What a great looking family love the first shot on the post!
this session simply reminds me of a title “Celebrating Life”!
ella is a little model! I love it! Miss you again.
Kids with cameras – brilliant!
Beyond awesome!! One of my favorite family sessions that you have ever done!!!
; my father was sturck by a spiritual force and blood was running down all over his body, also, she said again that, it maybe that my father had slept with somebody’s wife and was eventually attacked by the woman’s husband. Only God knows what has happened to him.My father refused to call me and the wife also refused to call me instead they both have to call Nigeria to relay what has happen to him. This is strange and a revelation of things to happen, as I live in the UK with my father till present but he has refused to call me to tell me what happened to him. On the 10th August 2012, I was watching the live service of Prayer Rain. As the testimony section was on, I felt my stomach cramping me and decided to ignore and continue to listen to the testimonies, but, I could not ignore it this time so, I have to use the toilet as I felt something was not right that something was about to take place. Thank God has taken away every evil poison, spell and curses from body.I thank God for everything.
That’s a well-thought-out answer to a challenging question
