The Patel Family

I had the privilege of spending an afternoon with the Patel Family. I know its cliche to say that pictures speak for themselves.. but honestly, you'll see what I mean with just one look at these adorable photos.
Patel family.. I hope you enjoy these.. as they were taken and worked on with lots of love.
I will stop here to point out that.. not only did these little girls want to be tossed up in the air.. but they wanted to run and jump and explore.. and climb mountains! Most of the time I was running around trying to catch the girls' adventurous spirits.. but occasionally would take a break to just chill with their gorgeous mom. Then they'd come rushing back.. and play (or dance) some more. Which explains this little series:
That last photo is my favorite one of the shoot. I knew that they had wanted some portrait style photos, and I wanted to get one after sunset to get some different light. But it was at the very end of the shoot.. after lots of playing and walking and smiling.. and I knew these girls had just given me some of their most patient and sweetest quality time. I didn't want to push it. So I told them that I would only snap 5 more photos.. and I would count down for them. 
That pic was 2. 
It says so much about their family spirit and energy... just love it!
I know that being in front of the camera can be tiresome.. especially for kids. So I consider it a huge success when I feel like they had fun! I think this post proves that those two little girls had a great time making memories with their family. And I was so very happy to be a part of that.
