Last weekend I got to spend with my all time favorite family . . . The Cavenders!!!! I’ve known and loved Nong for a very long time, since we were a couple 16 year olds back in Florida. She has been an integral part of me starting my photography business as well. She was my wedding photographer and ever since we have been keeping in touch and seeing lots more of each other. And since they recently moved to the Chicago area, we are now only a short 6 hour drive apart. Vance and the boys really are the sweetest and together they make an amazing family. Side note, Vance makes the BEST pancakes in the world. More about the little guys . . . I have never met children like them before, they are perfect. Ethan the older one is such a big brother always reminding Owen to share and helping him put LEGOS together. And Owen is a little love bug, he wanted to hold my hand the entire time. They are so loving with each other and it is such a pleasure to watch them interact. During the morning Easter Egg hunt, Ethan found the two eggs that had $1 bills in them and instead of keeping them both he just handed Owen one of the dollars without thinking twice, I was blown away. I truly believe that they are this way because of the absolutely loving and amazing parents they have. I adore them ALL and am so excited to get to see them quite a few more times this year.
We have been meaning to do a family shoot for quite a while but the timing never worked out and this time it almost didn’t either as the clouds were rolling in and it was quite cold and windy. Vance said he was good for 7 frames and we did it. Actually a few more frames than 7 :O) and yes they are JCrew adorbs . . . don’t you think?
LOVE and ADORE you Cavenders!!!! xoxoxoxo
this one is my favorite, the look on Owen’s face is priceless!
And this is their fur neighbor “Buddy”, isn’t he gorgeous? I couldn’t help myself, if there is a dog around I will pull out my camera. The morning light was so pretty on him as he was watching the Easter Egg hunt and was being a really good boy!
