Sutton Family

I found this quote I adore from Bethany Douglass on Life Captured INC(a photographer and mama living in Texas), " When I look back at my own childhood photos, the ones I love the most are the ones that capture the ordinary moments: photos of us at the breakfast table, with bed-head and covered in morning light; photos of us swinging on a swing set; and photos of our family around the campfire. We rarely look polished or poster-child worthy, but I treasure them anyway. I think when my children grow older and move away, I'll miss the ordinary. The messy breakfast table. The bed-jumping. The family adventures. The simple routines."

So when I arrived at the Sutton's home I wanted to capture just a slice of who they are right now, at this moment of time. That is why I think at home portrait sessions are so lovely and important.  Yes, the posed photographs can be precious and look nice in frames. But let's document these memories of who they really are at these stages in life and I mean... how could anyone resist these cuties? Especially since I was greeted by the little ones with "This way my lady" and "You are the best picture lady I have ever known".  I am pretty positive the last statement was because I also offered Sweet Tarts as delicious mid-photo session treats, but also we had a really delightful time together.
