Samuel (9 days old) and Penelope (13 months old)... / by Julie Cruz

This shoot was actually for Sam's newborn photos, but big sister, Penny decided that she was going to be the star of the show that day. From the moment she came to greet me, she had the biggest smile ever....and that smile lasted throughout my time spent with this wonderful family. Baby Sam was so easy going and barely made a peep the entire shoot. He happily posed for us and just hung out. On top of being an adorable and perfect family, they had a super awesome home as well. I think that's another reason why Penny did so well. Kids are more relaxed in their own environment. Sometimes when we take them out of their element and toss them in a random location, they are so overwhelmed by what's going on around them, that the last thing they want to do is take photos (and/or smile). I love in home shoots, so if you have a fun, cute home, let's shoot at your place ;) Anyway, check out this gorgeous family of four.....
