in children

You may recognize this family from their magazine cover and their darling family photography session from two years ago. Since then, they’ve added another awesome member to their crew: sweet little Eva who was just learning to walk when we did their family portraits this fall.

She would walk a few steps and be so proud of herself — that big smile and clapping hands are just adorable.

Gorgeous family and a gorgeous home. What a stunning example of old California style architecture.

Their front door archway made the perfect little alcove for cuddling up next to one another.

The property in the front of the house was a beautiful park-like setting that was perfect for a little game of football with Dad.

The autumn leaves were just beginning to show on these Japanese maples, making the perfect backdrop for this casual family portrait.

I’m always trying to get kids to kiss each other — it’s too cute not to — but Wilder took it to the next level with a big two-handed smack-er-roo right on the mouth…

And he was so pleased with the results! Oh my gosh – how I adore this child!
