Summer Family Pictures | Josh, Callie & Miss M

Summer is the BEST time for family pictures… but I’m probably biased because summer is my favorite season, followed closely by autumn!  But I feel like the setting for Josh and Callie’s family session was the epitome of what summer family pictures are in my mind!

If you don’t remember Josh and Callie from their wedding blog back in 2017, let me reintroduce them to you!… along with their newest addition, Little Miss M!  Can you handle the cuteness of her blonde curly hair?!

Anyone who has had a toddler knows that they don’t sit still for long but I was so impressed that we got Little Miss M to sit for a second AND look at the camera!  What a sweet little one she is!

Kisses from mommy are the best!

Oh my gosh… I think it was Josh’s idea to play the “where’s Miss M.” game!  He’d ask where she was and she’d hide her face and when she took her hands away from her face, Josh would exclaim, “there she is!”  As you can see, she LOVED the game!

I loved capturing the love between Callie and Miss M!

And giving him wet but precious kisses. 🙂

There always comes a point in a family session when the little ones need a break.  That’s when I make sure to focus some time on the parents!  After all, it was Callie and Josh that created the core of this family!

The Barn

I love how when you call a toddler, they either run the opposite direction or straight past you!  Thankfully little Miss M. ran the right direction, even if it was past mom!

I think this is my favorite photo from this whole session… I can’t tell who’s having more fun, Miss M, Josh or Callie! I also hoped that you enjoyed looking through their blog as much as I did spending the evening with this sweet family!  If you’d like to see more summer family pictures, check them out here!  Or if you’re interested in your own family session (or senior, engagement or wedding!) I’d love to hear from you here!
