October 24, 2011 - Portraits
mimi + lolo + katie + tony
Man, do we have the coolest job ever. Seriously, it'd be one thing if we just got to photograph professionally, but it's another ballgame that we get to shoot the people we do. We meet some of the coolest people through our job, and we got to meet one of the greatest families ever last week when we got together with Katie + Tony and their amazing daughters.
Mimi + Lolo are maybe two of the sweetest kids I've ever met, and I hope that our kids turn out half as cool. Since Katie + Tony are definitely more city folk than romp-around-nature types, we headed downtown to play around the city for a fantastic morning.
Believe me, guys, Alyssa has an internal, expansive rolodex of various crumbling brick walls around the city. And, as an FYI to families or couples or bridal parties we're shooting, we definitely take into account what you guys will be wearing when we try to figure out what we're going to be doing where.
So, yeah, your kids are two of the most well-behaved, genuinely nice kids we've ever photographed. And c'mon, how cute are these two girls??
Yeah - to say the least, we had a blast hanging out with them - and did my heart melt when Lolo grabbed my hand when we were crossing the street? Absolutely! It was an absolutely wonderful morning, and we couldn't have spent it with a cooler family.
Rich is working on getting Yelly McYellerton to sleep, so I'm gonna wrap things up here (and because I know Katie is soooo patiently waiting to see these!), but the silhouette? Yeah, that's why we like shooting in the morning. It's funny - I've lived a lot of places that are known for sunrises, but man, does Buffalo knock some sunrises out of the park.
Guys - it was absolutely amazing to meet you and photograph your wonderful family. We adored meeting your girls and hope you're as smitten with these photos as we are!! Thanks so much for trusting us to shoot you and letting us romp around downtown - we had a blast!!
