In Home Family Session: the Phillabaums

In this first photo mom is looking over at dad who is dancing to if I remember correctly some Usher? He was too quick for me to catch but I loved his willingness to be silly for his family. 

I love the way this little boy gets hysterical when Tucker the pug starts to wiggle and jump. I also love his full, mouth wide open, no holds barred laugh.  We should all laugh like that a little more.

While a family photo out in the grass with everyone smiling at the camera is a great thing to have, I believe that this photo with mom, dad, baby and the dog is the most honest and perfect family photo you could ask for. This photo doesn't just remind you of what your family looked like, but what what you did as a family and how much your boy loved his tractor book and his legos and how your silly dog would only get in the picture with some treats in dad's pocket. This is a family in their natural environment and it is a beautiful thing.
