Family portrait session (Diandra, Patrick, J, & E) – Wakefield, MA

Have you ever seen a kid fight a smile? Like, they don’t *want* to smile, but their cheeks go up and then they try really hard to keep their mouth from following suit and doing that thing – you know, smiling. Case in point, sweet little J. Even though she may have thought something was funny on this particular morning, she was definitely not going to let on that she thought so. Ultimately, it was her dad who cracked the code to letting her face reveal just how much fun she was having. The first time he tried it, he intentionally fell over backwards over a log. She *sorta* thought it was funny. It took the real deal of a misstep (falling into a giant hole left by an upturned tree stump) to get her to show off her brilliant smile. Her little sister, on the other hand, seemed a little more interested in running around and keeping her parents on their toes.

Diandra and Patrick, what sweet little girls you have! Thank you so much for sharing your morning with me.
