Melissa (6), Amy (4) and Leah (4).... / by Julie Cruz

I'm always honored, blessed and thankful for repeat clients. Luckily I have many (thank you!), and this family is one of them! This was my 5th year in a row taking their photos! From their first shoot (when the twins were just a few weeks old) until now, I have literally watched these girls grow. They are sweet, they are silly, they are adorable and kind hearted. As usual, around this time of year, I stop posting the "ideal *family* shots" which might make it onto holiday cards, so sneaks peeks have fewer photos...but for good reason :) Anyway, here are just a few from my session (which was 100+ degrees, mind you!) with these 3 sweet girls and their parents)....

Most photographers know it's sometimes tricky to get real smiles out of kiddos, so to get 3 real smiles...all while cuddling. Yep, i'm not even their mom, but this even made MY heart melt :)
