i first met erica at my daughter’s school. her adorable daughter is charlie’s friend and i have often seen them play together. they even talk about each other when they are at home, i learned. erica is such a beauty and i was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her and her family. her two children are just darling, and her husband…well, you’ll see. they are such a beautiful bunch! this family is a photographer’s dream ~ so fun and natural in front of the camera, you’d would think they were models. anyway, i had a blast capturing their family. i don’t recall directing them at all, really. i just remember a lot of kissing and laughing. and oh, we had a little dance party in the middle of an open field. check them out…so adorable!
