Burke Family | Des Moines Family Portrait Session

One of the things I absolutely treasure about my job is getting to see my wedding clients as parents!  There is just something so special (and honestly kind of fascinating) about the dynamic of my couples when they add kids, especially that second one, into the mix.  Now Jessica and Chris were one of the cutest wedding couples I’d ever worked with, then when Hudson came along they somehow managed to get even cuter.  Now that Harper has made them a family of four they’re off the charts adorable!  If they add a third baby to their crew I may not be able to handle it and be forced to write their blog post using nothing but heart eyes emojis!  How they interact with each other and with the kids is suuuuuper sweet and I’m honored that they continue to let me photograph them!  We started at my studio for their family session and then headed outdoors to take full advantage of this amazing fall weather!  Here are some of my favs…enjoy!

 

Okay so one of the first images I snapped of Hudson was this one on the bottom...which reminded me so much of this top image I shot at his one year session!  ItPin thisimage

It’s crazy to me how kid’s personalities are evident so early! So glad to know that he’s still just as spunky and filled with swag as he was then! Ha ha!

Okay, can we talk about how adorable it is how Hudson is holding his dad’s hand. Not sure why, but that really gets me!

I really hope I can photograph this family when Hudson is like 13 and neither him nor Chris is "too cool" to recreate this image!   Pin thisimage
