Van Hart Family | Des Moines, IA Portrait Session

I photographed the Van Hart family several years ago and it’s so fun to see how these kids have grown up.  What’s especially fun to see is that they have turned into tiny versions of their parents, which I’m sure Kati and Doug will both love and loathe as the kids get older! ;)  Kylie is sweet, sassy and on point with her posing…this little one means business!  Cooper is hilarious and a bit unpredictable with an imagination that is waaaaay beyond anything I had going on at that age!  I just adored shooting this family, so there are a lot of images in this post.  So grab a snack and settle in!  Here are some of my favs from this in studio and on location fall family session….enjoy!!!Katie McDonald Photography+family+portrait+session+des moines+iowaPin thisimageKatie McDonald Photography+family+portrait+session+des moines+iowaPin thisimage

Okay I dare you to look at this picture and not think these kids are the spitting images of their parents! Even the way they move their heads when they laugh is nearly identical! Pin thisimage

This one was too funny for me not to include. Everyone in this family has awesome sunglasses, they’re just a family that’s THAT cool! So I tell them to pose “in the coolest way they can think of.” I count to 3 and without looking at each other, Kylie and Dad do the EXACT SAME THING!!!!! How freaking cute is that?
