Acosta, Party of 6!
The Acosta's have to be my favorite family session to date! This big family was nothing but fun, laughs and a little mischief. ;)
First of all, they were there early, even before me! I can't tell you how much I appreciate that! Secondly, the kids (and dad!) were all smiles and good moods. I can tell you from all the sessions I've done, there's always one or two people (usually teens or dad) that don't want anything to do with pictures, and it's a LOT of work to get them to relax and not look miserable.... not these folks!
I don't know if it was because it was Mother's Day (or at least Suzette's Mother's Day gift), or because two of the boys had a birthday on Monday, or she just offered up a really good bribe (the boys wouldn't admit to getting bribed!), but they were super cooperative, laughing, joking around, and up for any suggestions I had.
I got some wonderful shots of them as a family, and also some cute shots of the kids and just mom and dad. I love that they were so playful with each other and kept each other laughing. Mr Luca, the youngest, is definitely a little prankster and has a silly personality; I'm thinking after taking Jose's and Suzette's pictures that he gets it from his dad! LOL
Anyway, I had a wonderful time with the Acosta's and just love that I left the session with smiles as big as the ones they shared with me!
Suzette, I hope you l like your sneak peak! Happy Mother's Day, and I'll have the rest to you VERY soon!
