The Schmits

Have I ever mentioned that I love kids? I LOVE kids. So much. Sometimes I wish that I could skip ahead to when I'm a stay-at-home mom in a house with a red door and a white fence and pretty gardens where I sip lemonade and flip thorough my J. Crew catalogues while my three perfect children (two boys and one girl) play quietly in the yard. Juuuuuust kidding! That's a little too idyllic, don't you think?  Plus, I'd miss out on all these exciting college years where I get to 'figure out who I am' and all that stuff. Until I reach the point in my life when I have my own little bundles of joy (don't worry mom and dad- I'll wait at least another 5 or so years) I'll find happiness in photographing adorable families like this one! 

I particularly enjoy taking pictures of younger kids- they're always so full of energy! And lots of energy makes for some great candids. Even though my shoot with Carlissa and her family was just a mini one (and we were dodging rain all morning!), I loved how these pictures turned out. They have the most adorable kids, don't you think?  Hope you enjoy!
