The Compton Family Session is always a fun time for me. This family has so much personality that it makes for a session full of laughter and great times. I mean who doesn't love a session full of sayings like "Daddy's a Dork" and "Chicken Nuggets" to get people to smile and bunny ears and crazy faces all around. Kim and Matt are an awesome couple who are loving and playful with each other and their children, which I am a huge fan of. Sydney is pure enjoyment and you can tell she loves her brothers no matter what they do to annoy her. She has big goals and is a joy to talk to. Will is a character full of crazy faces and some great ideas. He truly made me laugh out loud with his silly antics. He has a fantastic personality. Brady was a champ. He sat for picture after picture for me with a great smile on his face despite it being chilly next to the water and his tummy anxiously awaiting some dinner. He didn't complain until close to the very end and that's when I had pull out my fart noises because that is what you do when a little boy has had it with having his picture taken right? He even helped me carry a tripod back to my car, exclaiming "I've got work to do" while he carried it. Top it all off they came for their session dressed in the greatest outfits. Navy blue cable knits, grey and blue baseball style long sleeved shirts, a great patterned sweater on mom and an awesome sweater adorned with a big anchor right in the middle. I must admit Brady's anchor sweater may have been my favorite. I was kinda jealous of it actually. Oh and did I mention this is an amazing military family who sacrifices don't go unnoticed or under appreciated by this photographer? Because yeah...they are! This is the second year in a row that I have been blessed to photograph this family and I hope not the last because their sessions are always a great time. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.
These three are the apples of their parents eyes and a lot of fun with their big personalities!
Because Big Sisters can fix anything with a hug and a promise!
We did a similar shot last year with the kids covering their own eyes. I thought this might keep the tradition alive and be fun!
Bunny ears for mom
