It’s been a little while since I’ve taken photos of the Dolberg family, so I was DELIGHTED when Janel sent me an e-mail asking for family photos this summer. The last time I took their photos, Lauren inadvertently told me that her mom had a baby in her belly! It was so funny, but I tried to play off like I didn’t hear it, ha ha!
So, it made it extra special for me to take their photos this year because I got to meet Lauren’s little sister Katherine! It’s very clear that Lauren loves her little sister so much and Katherine is still trying to figure out what to do with all that love sometimes! 🙂 But, they got along so well and just wanted to run and play the whole time. Katherine’s at the age of wanting to stand and run — once you get those little feet going, it’s hard to make them stop! 🙂
Janel and Andy had so much patience with helping both of their girls feel comfortable in front of the camera. Each of them was so supportive and smiled, giggled, and hugged each of their daughters.
One thing I learned really quickly as a family photographer is that you have to be able to move quickly on your feet! Katherine was wanting to move and I wanted them to giggle a little, so we played peek-a-boo around this cool statue that had all these holes in it that were the perfect size for the girls to pop their head in! I had my camera at the ready and each time they poked through, I yelled, “peek-a-boo!” and got the cutest giggles and smiles from them. It was so fun!
What a great family! I can’t wait to see them again soon and watch the girls continue to grow!
