I can still remember Natalie scolding me at the Boys and Girls Club when she found out that I was a photographer after almost two years working there. "Are you kidding me?! I would have had you take so many pictures of Manny and our family!"
Well, it definitely looks like we're making up for lost time, this is my second session with them this year and it's incredible to see how fast kiddos grow! Last time Manny was the grumpy one and Mila was all smiles, this time Manny stepped up his cheesy smile game and Mila had a stern expression the majority of the time. But with mom and dad's snuggles, tosses in the air, and bubbles, we were able to get some fun shots.
Props can make or break a session... which is why when the heat picks up in Phoenix and the kiddos get restless, bubbles are in order. Who likes them more, the kids or the parents?!
Parents were lovebird before they became parents, and these two are high school sweethearts, so of course we had to sneak a few in with just the two of them.
I am so thankful for this sweet family that continues to support my photography, smile big, and laugh lots. Excited to have one more year with them, next time you see them will hopefully be for Christmas pictures and I'm sure Natalie will have BOTH Manny and Mila trained for the camera. ;)
Until next time, go grab some bubbles and have some family fun!
