I've been sitting here trying to find words to express how awesome this family is. Elise and I have been friends for a couple years now, despite the distances that have separated us for the majority of that time. She is an incredibly creative person, a very talented photographer, and an awesome friend. This is my second time photographing her and her family, and this time sweet baby Clementine completed the picture. (Pun intended. hehe.) (Fun fact: she was born just a week after my little one! Our due dates were just days apart, and throughout our pregnancies Elise and I wondered who would go first!)
Sam, the oldest, is sweet and smart and adores his sister. Pete is adventurous, spunky, and full of personality. Clementine might just be the happiest baby I've ever met. Each of them is such a great mix of their awesome parents, whose love for one another and adventurous spirits make them a joy to be around. They just moved back to the US from Brazil, and will be here only a year before a big move to India!
While they were here in Florida for a visit, we spent an afternoon walking downtown, finding fun spots and murals along the way. The steps where we started the session were the location of Paul and Elise's engagement photos, eight years ago. After exploring the city for a while, we let the boys loose on the beach and played until the light was nearly gone.
But enough with words; see for yourself...
